Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0801011973, Hardcover)The earth is the Lords, writes Leax; it is not ours to use as we please. But because we are fallen and are in the process of being restored, our attempts to live responsibly are inevitably incomplete, half-understood, and sometimes simply wrong.
In this entertaining but thought-provoking book, John Leax, admitting his own ineffectual bumbling, thinks out loud about our place in the natural world. Though he doesnt claim to have all the answers, he suggests that the tension between culture and nature is best resolved through our living respectfully in relationship to the earth, restraining ourselves in our use of it. By taking pleasure in the small gestures toward wholeness that can be made in the confusion around us, Leax demonstrates the richness of such a friendship.
This beautifully written and designed book includes a section of poetry and would make an excellent gift.
