Religious historian Karen Armstrong ably narrates her short audiobook, which urges a reconnection with nature and a renewed recognition of its sacredness. Her performance is accessible and relaxed as she explores attitudes toward the natural world through history and across various religious traditions. She argues, convincingly, that many people have lost the respect for the physical world that was prevalent in earlier times. Renewing tattered human relationships with nature, she says, is necessary if the world is to avoid the environmental catastrophes that loom. Armstrong has a pleasant English accent. At times, her voice carries a slight tremolo that is noticeable but not distracting. This important work is delivered in an inviting manner.
