Book Description

From Publishers Weekly There have been many books on eco-spirituality, but few that are so lovely to look at as Joyce Rupp's The Cosmic Dance: An Invitation to Experience Our Oneness. Mary Southard's full-color art complements Rupp's ruminations on the unity of all creation. Rupp's reflections, in poetry and prose, are also enhanced by well-chosen quotations from the pens of writers such as Rachel Carson, Annie Dillard, Henri Nouwen and Teilhard de Chardin. This is a well-designed and thoughtful book. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
