The Death of Life: The Horror of Extinction
By Sean McDonagh
Sean considers many habitats under threat of destruction, such as coral reefs and mangrove forests, well as the different types of species threatened. This passionate book is a plea for action before it is too late to save 11,000 species currently under threat of extinction.
Again, Sean looks at the position of the church on these issues, and especially the work of Thomas Berry. He follows the historical relationship between church and nature, with a section on current Catholic teaching, plus Celtic spirituality. The final section is one of hope, looking at how different organisations and cultures might proceed in order to preserve
biodiversity and save the many habitats and species currently under threat.
