Is the Christian faith ecologically bankrupt? H. Paul Santmire has responded forcefully to that frequently voiced critical question. He has maintained that, notwithstanding ambiguities, a single Christian tradition of long standing has something profoundly promising to say about nature and human life in nature. Now, in Ritualizing Nature, he shows how that rich tradition is itself deeply rooted in Christianity's own historic ritual practices. He then argues that those practices, when they are rightly interpreted, powerfully shape theological "habits" or ways for Christians to engage nature, signaled by the words wonder, service, and partnership.
