The Sacred Depths of Nature

Ursula Goodenough

This eloquent volume reconciles our contemporary scientific understanding of reality with our timeless spiritual yearnings. Addressing ideas like evolution, emotions, sexuality, and death, The Sacred Depths of Nature allows even non-scientists to appreciate that the origins of life and the universe are no less meaningful in light of our scientific understanding of them. At the end of each chapter, her spiritual reflections respond to nature's complexity with a vibrant emotional intensity and sense of reverent wonder.
