 About this Book
“We sincerely congratulate the editor, Barry McDonald, for this very thoughtful selection of essays written by many well-known authors. The American reader, still surrounded here and there by virgin nature, willappreciate this book because it provides a more convincing argument forthe protection of the environment and the survival of Mother Earth andits inhabitants. This book gives a valuable basis for any serious spiritualecology. Besides, its presentation beautifully reflects its spirit.”
 Jean-Pierre Lafouge
, Marquette University “Nature is the first and last revelation because it is the ‘scripture’ of theEternal. As this remarkable collection of essays teaches, the trace of Hishand is found in every rippling field of grass or fluttering leaf or silent flower; to read them is to help recover our roots of immortality.”
 Mark Perry
, author of 
On Awakening and Remembering 
“This collection of essays by some of the most important scholars and reli-gious authorities of our time points to the necessity of understanding thecurrent environmental crisis through the lens of spiritual vision: its basicthesis is that the earth itself is sacred, and that to overcome the current agendas of exploitation and waste, we must see the creation as the work of the Creator. This book is essential reading for anyone who has ever felt thepresence of God in nature.”

“In the face of such evidence the scientific worldview that underpins thedesacralization of nature is challenged to explain why it is that the deepest  wisdom the human race is heir to unfailingly declares that we deviate fromthe vision of the natural world as our sacred home at our peril.”

World Wisdom The Library of Perennial Philosophy
The Library of Perennial Philosophy is dedicated to the exposition of the time-less Truth underlying the diverse religions. This Truth, often referred to as the
Sophia Perennis 
—or Perennial Wisdom—finds its expression in the revealedScriptures as well as the writings of the great sages and the artistic creations of thetraditional worlds.The Perennial Philosophy provides the intellectual principles capable of explaining both the formal contradictions and the transcendent unity of the great religions.Ranging from the writings of the great sages of the past, to the perennialist authors of our time, each series of our Library has a different focus. As a whole,they express the inner unanimity, transforming radiance, and irreplaceable valuesof the great spiritual traditions.
Seeing God Everywhere: Essays of Nature and the Sacred 
appears as one of our selec-tions in The Perennial Philosophy series.
 The Perennial Philosophy Series
In the beginning of the Twentieth Century, a school of thought arose which has focused on the enunciation and explanation of the PerennialPhilosophy. Deeply rooted in the sense of the sacred, the writings of itsleading exponents establish an indispensable foundation for understand-ing the timeless Truth and spiritual practices which live in the heart of allreligions. Some of these titles are companion volumes to the Treasures of the World’s Religions series, which allows a comparison of the writings of the great sages of the past with the perennialist authors of our time.
