Originally published in 1996 and now completely revised an updated, legendary activist Tom Hayden's major work demonstrates how a spiritual reawakening is needed within the major religions in order to save the environment and the planet. Drawing on the work of major thinkers such as Henry David Thoreau, St Francis of Assisi and the Dalai Lama, Hayden argues that religion is the answer to today's environmental crisis - and calls for a revamping of traditional doctrines to include guidelines for taking care of the earth.
"Tom Hayden changed America," The Atlantic Monthly wrote.
