About this book

With a foreword by James Lovelock, the inventor of Gaia.
This unique and thought-provoking book probes the nature of Gaia, a scientific theory founded by Lovelock in 1979.
`Full of admirable and much-needed discussions, points where exasperating and long-outstanding nails are at last hit on the head and driven home. It is a book that is really needed. Mary Midgley

The book is both stimulating and challenging....
-"The Friend
.."interesting and thought-provoking and is worth careful consideration."
- Dr. Lisa Goddard
..."a remarkable book [T]here is a trenchant critique of current methods in both Science and Theology."
-"Earth Science as Theology Edward James
"A splendid book.I now see why thoughts of Gaia are as much in the realms of theology as of science."
-James Lovelock, Founder of the Gaia Theory
"Here is a book that is really needed. Hurrah for it."
-Mary Midgley
