Ecology is too important to be left to self-appointed "environmentalists." Drawing together the wisdom of the Bible with his vast knowledge of the Western literary tradition (Shakespeare, Hopkins, Eliot and many others) and his experience of nature as a longtime resident of Japan, Fr. Milward conveys the beauty that those attentive to God's creation discover. He reawakens us to the sense of contemplative wonder and delight that children experience but that adults, in the busy hubbub of urban and suburban life, so easily forget. Each short chapter is a conversation with a spiritual master, guiding us toward the pearls of God's glory imprinted in the delicate patterns of the world.
