This book is written by a Quaker on my Equipping For Ministry course and was her project for the course. It is self published and self financed with some help from her Area Meeting and is an impressive work. Maggie is a non theist but very spiritual person and this book is written from a committed Quaker perspective.

She considers the world is committed to environmental destruction and presents evidence to support this in the first section of the book. More interesting is her next sections on what a balanced sane world would be like. This very much involves a spiritual approach based on Quaker principles.

Even if you do not accept her premise of how desperate she considers the present situation is it is an interesting and thought provoking book of how we could organise a better world. Unfortunately she has few suggestions of how we can get there.

The book can be found in the Woking Meeting library.
