(PRLEAP.COM) September 30, 2015 – “All Creation Works Together,” a new book by Fr. Raymond Kirtz, O.M.I, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Amplify your appreciation for the earth and all of Creation-God’s gift to humankind with this book, inspired by childhood experiences in nature and years of supplemental reading in science.

Growing up on his family farm during the Great Depression with very few store-bought toys, the author turned his attention to the outdoors, where his body and spirit found nourishment. The changing seasons were exciting and enlivening, and the constantly reshaping clouds, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and night sky full of stars were enthralling. Watching planted fields take root and grow, harvesting food, and enjoying meals from the farm and home garden helped the author learn that the earth is alive and protective.

“All Creation Works Together” will help awaken your sense of the beauty and wonder of God’s Creation and gain a vision of a better future for humankind.
