Francis of Assisi is the saint most closely identified with caring for and celebrating the things of the earth. This book takes both a theological and practical approach to developing a Franciscan spirituality of the earth. Four sections focus on: the relationship between the earth as Gods creation and Jesus as the Incarnation of God; the implication of Francis Canticle of Creation for our time; the role of contemplative prayer as a key to discovering Francis awe and respect for creation; and conversion in the Franciscan tradition. Each section offers reflective action opportunities designed to bring the books ecological and theological insights into the readers daily life and nurture a Franciscan spirituality of the earth. Prayers, meditations, spiritual practices and group activities are offered which provide a practical, hands-on approach to reconnecting with the earth and acting in right relationship.

If we are blowing our Franciscan horn here, it should have been blown much earlier and much louder! This is the wisdom that our world so desires and needs today. We can no longer see ourselves as separate from the 'great chain of being,' and we can no longer see this as a non-religious issue. Francis intuited all of this 800 years ago. -Father Richard Rohr, O.F.M., Center for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Three of the greatest minds in Franciscan theology, Ilia Delio, O.S.F., Franciscan Keith Douglass Warner, O.F.M., and Pamela Wood, come together to discuss one of the greatest crises of our time-the destruction of the Earth. This book takes both a theological and practical approach to developing a Franciscan spirituality of the earth. Four sections highlight the distinct relationships creation has with the world: incarnation, community, contemplation and conversion. In this meticulously researched book, the authors propose ways in which we can all understand our own roles in relationship to the Earth and ways in which we can make it better.

Each section offers reflective action opportunities designed to bring the book's ecological and theological insights into the reader's daily life and nurture a Franciscan spirituality of the earth. Prayers, meditations, spiritual practices and group activities are offered which provide a practical hands-on approach to reconnecting with the earth and acting in right relationship.

"Earth, with all its creatures, is in crisis. And responding to this crisis will require every possible resource of our human community. One of the most precious of these resources is the Franciscan tradition. It is a joy to welcome this book as a wise, thoughtful, inspiring and practical contribution to ecological theology, grounded in ancient Christian tradition that sees Earth as our sister and mother.Care for Creationis part of a wider retrieval of Franciscan theology for our new time, but is unique in this blend of three interrelated disciplines, scientifically informed ecology, theology and the practice of reflective action." -From the Foreword by Denis Edwards
