About the Author

Karen Armstrong is one of the world's leading commentators on religious affairs. She spent seven years as a Roman Catholic nun but left her teaching order in 1969 to read English at St Anne's College, Oxford. In 1982, she became a full-time writer and broadcaster. She is the author of sixteen books and has been awarded with honours and prizes across the globe, including the British Academy's inaugural Nayef Al-Rodhan Prize for improving transcultural understanding in 2013.

Reviews

A rich and subtle exploration of the sacredness of nature, filled with a timeless wisdom and deep humanity... Much has been written on the scientific and technological aspects of climate change... But Armstrong's book is both more personal and more profound. Its urgent message is that hearts and minds need to change if we are to once more learn to revere our beautiful and fragile planet * The Guardian, Book of the Day *
Warm and witty... [Armstrong's] ability to summon up examples and quotations...is humbling... Sacred Nature: [is] a challenge to think differently in the face of climate change, to recover ways of looking at things, including God * Tablet *
An accessible account of how a wider religious perspective might contribute to humans' adopting a more solicitous attitude to nature. * Rowan Williams, New Statesman *
