This book responds to the suffering and poverty produced by globalization. It tackles the notion that we are an addictive society, trapped by the market's seductions. Should we allow the market to dictate what we want? is the question. This book argues that there is a deeper language of desire concealing what humanity really wants. How can the resources of theology, Church and faith community be harnessed in this search? Have they lost their way, to some extent complicity in the market's dictates? Using story and myth in a creative manner, this book explores the eco-mystical path, attempting to recover positive theological resources, within and beyond Christianity, for a renewed spiritual quest. Yet the answer presents a surprising paradox. Recovering what we really yearn for will mean creating and participating in cultures and communities of simplicity and voluntary sacrifice.
"As often in Mary Grey's books, the most powerful effect is derived from the poetic vision which illumines her writing." Pat Pinsent, CATHOLIC WOMEN'S NETWORK.
