The earth is the Lord's, says Psalm 24. God owns it, in other words. Is it time to take this seriously, as God's word does? If so, it means that ""secular"" is an illusion, and our traditional division of the world into ""sacred"" and ""secular"" is false. This work looks at the major consequences for Christians when we see the earth as sacred and realize the stewardship that follows. We are called as Christians to take a prophetic role in forming a worldview which understands that we live as sacred beings in the Lord's sacred space. ""This book is an example of a thoughtful sacramental Christian engaging revelation and this world, and coming up with a vision of life in the Triune God on this earth. Not all will agree with the way Win Mott thinks through the political implications of the gospel, but every reader will profit from Mott's sacramental reading of the church seasons and life on this earth."" --Gerald McDermott, author, Everyday Glory: The Revelation of God in All of Reality ""In The Earth is the Lord's, Bishop Mott takes on two common dichotomies, the sacred versus the secular and religion versus science. He shows that these topics are not in opposition and it is the Christian's responsibility to be mindful of all four subjects as a matter of spirituality and practice. Mott thoroughly relates these subjects to the liturgical year and the Eucharistic rite. This is a must read for anyone who cares about our environment."" --Jonathan S.
