This is a facinating book explores the global emergence and growing influence of what Taylor calls dark green religon. By this he means religions that consider nature sacred and all life worthy of reverent care. The examples are remarkably diverse (including discussions of surfers, scientists, and film makers) and the stories often moving. I never expected a scholarly book to be a great read. In sum, if you loved Avatar, you'd love this book. Taylor even has a section on Avatar at his website, which is www.brontaylor.com, which he understands as another example of dark green religion.
