A Field Guide to Nature as Spiritual Practice
Steven Chase’s innovative Nature as Spiritual Practice shows in practical ways how delighting in the natural world can enhance Christian life and provides thought-provoking contemplative exercises to help readers reclaim the role of nature in the formation of spiritual and moral identity. In this companion Field Guide Chase offers a rich assortment of additional "creation practices" to lead readers into more profound knowledge of themselves and their Creator, instill in them new reverences for and companionship with nature, and awaken in them a greater commitment to creation care.
According to Chase, this field guide "will get you into nature; it will encourage you to pay attention to details large and small; it will awaken curiosity; it will invite you to reacquaint yourself with wonder and astonishment and beauty in nature; it will lead you into wanderings, serendipitous experiences, surprises, perhaps even into getting lost. . . .It is my hope that your Field Guide will become ragged, torn, dirt-smudged, and berry- or bug-stained over time as you carry it into the field, alternately leafing through it and meditating on it, pocketing it and dropping it, and taking it home for another day."
