Description

Bestselling author Brian D. McLaren followed his love of nature (specifically, tortoises) all the way to the Galapagos Islands. There, he paid close attention to the flora and fauna around him but also to what was happening within him, how the natural world awakened his soul in a way that organized religion could not. McLaren's descriptions of birds and reptiles, fish and flowers sing; he walks in the footsteps of Charles Darwin and grieves that Darwin has been demonized by his fellow Christians; and he reflects on how his own faith has evolved in the years since he left the pastorate.

McLaren writes in the spirit of Aldo Leopold and Wendell Berry, weaving together the spiritual and the material. Even though most readers will never visit the Galapagos Islands, they can travel with McLaren and experience the beauty and fragility of this extraordinary place.

 You will never see your place in the universe the same way again

"Brian McLaren has written a great many life-changing books, but this may be the most significant. He uses a new voice here to describe his own life-changing voyage. I found myself reading him in a whisper, if such a thing is possible, for fear of interrupting the flow of his gorgeous, intimate, and brilliant prose. My only caveat is this: do not read this book unless you are ready for your life to change too, for you will never see your place in the universe the same way again."
