Reviews"For those of us who have respect for the scientific method—but who also call ourselves 'spiritual but not religious,' who seek a spirituality unburdened by the chains of dogma, who seek a deep connection with Creation that is based in awe and reverence for nature and the cosmos—David Christopher has done a marvelous job in helping us reclaim the word 'Holy.'" —John Robbins, author, The Food Revolution
