Publisher's Synopsis

'A rich and subtle exploration of the sacredness of nature, filled with a timeless wisdom and deep humanity' Guardian

In this hugely powerful book, Karen Armstrong argues that it isn't enough to change our behaviour to avert environmental catastrophe - we must rekindle our spiritual bond with the natural world. From gratitude and compassion to sacrifice and non-violence, Armstrong draws themes from the world's religious traditions to offer practical steps to reconnect you with nature.

Speaking to anyone interested in our relationship with nature, worried about environmental destruction, or searching for new actions to save our planet, Sacred Nature will uncover the most profound connections between humans and the natural world.

'A lamentation in the key of Greta Thunberg, with undertones of Carl Jung' Wall Street Journal

'Warm and witty... a challenge to think differently in the face of climate change' Tablet

'Karen Armstrong is one of the handful of wise and supremely commentators on religion' Alain de Botton
