The universe story : from the primordial flaring forth to the ecozoic era--a celebration of the unfolding of the cosmos by Brian Swimme( Book )

17 editions published between 1992 and 2007 in English and held by 938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Grounded in contemporary scientific understanding and inspired by the world's great wisdom traditions, cosmologist Brian Swimme and cultural historian Thomas Berry meld the findings of contemporary science - cosmology, geology, biology, and sociology - with the human search for meaning. The resulting account articulates fifteen billion years of existence with awe, delight, and vision." "Swimme and Berry remind us of the importance of story - "story is the only way of providing, in our times, what the mythic stories of the universe provided for tribal peoples and for the earlier classical civilizations in their times." In a richly detailed narrative of epic sweep, they recount the unfolding of the universe, from the "primordial flaring forth" and the formation of galaxies and supernovas to the "human emergence," classical civilizations, and imminent Ecozoic era." "The Universe Story compellingly explores humanity's place in the evolving cosmos and our ecological imperative. Crippling the Earth's biodiversity, "we are deciding what species will live or perish, we are determining the chemical structure of the soil and the air and the water, we are mapping out the areas of wilderness that will be allowed to function in their own natural modalities." This, Swimme and Berry remind us, "is filled with risk and presumption," for "the story of the Earth is also the story of the human."" "Honoring "the special capacity of the human to enable the universe and the planet Earth to reflect on and to celebrate ... in our music and our art, our dance and our poetry, and in our religious rituals," Swimme and Berry urge that we honor the knowledge gained by centuries of scientific inquiry with reverence, entrancement, and a commitment to renewal. Such joyous commitment is essential, for "there is eventually only one story, the story of the universe. Every form of being is integral with this comprehensive story. Nothing is itself without everything else.""--Jacket
Buddhism by Thomas Berry( Book )

19 editions published between 1967 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The doctrines, wisdom, and virtues of Buddhism are full of a spiritual depth unappreciated by most. Thomas Berry, in this illuminating survey, explores that depth of spirit by analyzing the history and philosophy of Buddhism. His eloquent and informative style brings the Western reader a complete understanding of the Buddhist interpretation of man's earthly life and spiritual destiny. The text is aimed specifically at the general reader who knows very little about Buddhist traditions, and Mr. Berry succeeds in providing a well-rounded introduction to this faith." -- Back of cover

The sacred universe : earth, spirituality, and religion in the twenty-first century by Thomas Berry( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A leading scholar, cultural historian, and Catholic priest who spent more than fifty years writing about our engagement with the Earth, Thomas Berry possessed prophetic insight into the rampant destruction of ecosystems and the extinction of species. In this book he makes a persuasive case for an interreligious dialogue that can better confront the environmental problems of the twenty-first century. These erudite and keenly sympathetic essays represent Berry's best work, covering such issues as human beings' modern alienation from nature and the possibilities of future, regenerative forms of religious experience. Asking that we create a new story of the universe and the emergence of the Earth within it, Berry resituates the human spirit within a sacred totality
Evening thoughts : reflecting on Earth as sacred community by Thomas Berry( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among the contemporary voices for the Earth, none resonates like that of noted cultural historian Thomas Berry. His teaching and writings have inspired a generation's thinking about humankind's place in the Earth community and the universe, engendering widespread critical acclaim and a documentary film on his life and work. This new collection of essays, from various years and occasions, expands and deepens ideas articulated in his earlier writings and also breaks new ground. The author opens our eyes to the full dimensions of the ecological crisis, framing it as a crisis of spiritual vision. Applying his formidable erudition in cultural history, science, and comparative religions, he forges a compelling narrative of creation and communion that reconciles modern evolutionary thinking and traditional religious insights concerning our integral role in Earth's society. While sounding an urgent alarm at our current dilemma, he inspires us to reclaim our role as the consciousness of the universe and thereby begin to create a true partnership with the Earth community
