"There is no cheap grace available in these pages, but there is great encouragement to move ourselves toward the deepest, most demanding places of hope in our mutual search for a truly just and compassionate life together with all creation. Every participant in these "conversations" urges us to take all the great, imperative risks of spiritual and intellectual growth, insisting on our deepest truths as our guide."
—Vincent Harding, veteran activist and scholar, Illif School of Theology

Such conversations are necessary to forging a sustainable relationship between humans and the rest of creation. Steve Heinrichs is to be commended for having assembled this book."
—Ward Churchill, author of Struggle for the Land
"Mind blowing. Once you read the book, you will never look at the world, or your place within it, the same way again. The voices within these covers offer sobering and challenging truths. I am uncomfortably humbled."
