There is a growing concern globally for our environment and the complex world of nature which is our human home. Also, a sense of greater mutual understanding is needed between communities with differing cultural traditions. In particular we need to probe more deeply into India's rich spiritual heritage.

These three pressing human concerns come together in this timely book by Eric J. Lott. The author, in particular, argues how crucial it is, in responding to all these concerns, to engage with the richly suggestive theology of the great Vaishnava  theologian, Sri Ramanuja.
