Humanity and the Earth itself stand at an important crossroad. The combined dynamics of deepening poverty and accelerating ecological degradation create a powerful vortex of despair and destruction. And yet Mark Hathaway and Leonardo Boff believe we still have the opportunity to act fruitfully and change direction. Drawing on insights from quantum physics, deep ecology, and the new cosmology, they articulate a new vision of liberating action. In the ancient image of the Tao--the principle of living in balance with the wisdom of the cosmos--they lay out a path of spiritual renewal, ecological transformation, and authentic liberation.
Mark Hathaway lives in Canada where he serves as South America program coordinator for the United Church of Canada.
Leonardo Boff is a Brazilian theologian and the author of many books, including Ecology and Liberation and Cry of the Earth, Cry of the Poor. In 2001 he was the recipient of the prestigious Right Livelihood Award.
