Wallace retrieves a central but often neglected biblical theme--the idea of God as carnal Spirit who indwells all things--as the basis for constructing a 'green spirituality' responsive to the environmental needs of our time. In the biblical tradition, he writes, God as Spirit is a presence that shows itself to us daily by living in and through the earth. One message of Christianity is therefore celebration of the bodily, material world--ancient redwoods, vernal springs, broad-winged hawks, everyday pigweed--as the place that God indwells and cares for in order to maintain the well-being of the earth. Wallace's bold yet careful work reawakens our sense of the sacrality of the earth and the life that the Trinitarian God creates there.
