The best-selling author of Radical Amazement articulates a transforming vision of spirituality that examines the intricate connectedness of the physical and spiritual worlds, a phenomenon she calls the "field of compassion."

In the tradition of Teilhard de Chardin and Thomas Berry, Judy Cannato invites spiritual seekers to embrace the way in which an understanding of religion and the spiritual path is informed and illumined by cutting-edge science. Cannato's newest book is a must-read for those interested in how the new cosmology and the Christian story can be understood in harmony with one another. She shows how modern scientific discoveries demonstrate that at the most fundamental of levels all life is connected and that humankind participates in the unfolding of the universe. This book's compelling and radical call to transformation will inspire readers to choose collaboration and peace over competition and conflict.


"Reassurance and hope."

"Judy Cannato writes like a poet, visions like a mystic, and weaves a story that is original, provocative, and inspiring. Her ability to integrate the wisdom of field theory, Christian compassion, and personal narrative provides the reader with nourishment for intellect and spirit alike. A message of reassurance and hope for troubled times."

Diarmuid O’Murchu, Author of Quantum Theology

"A gateway into the future."

"Synthesizing the brilliant insights of our era’s most significant scientists and spiritual teachers, Judy Cannato provides as well an effective process for embodying this new understanding. Field of Compassion is a gateway into the future of the human species."

Brian Swimme, Coauthor of The Universe Story

"I am absolutely enthralled."

"I am absolutely enthralled with this book. I want to keep sitting inside its heart, to absorb more and more of the profound realities that Judy Cannato sets forth with such clarity and beauty."

Joyce Rupp, Author of Open the Door

"Written with prophetic honesty."

"We are all called to the compassion in which we are already held, challenged to become what we already are. Field of Compassion engages us in this process. It is written with prophetic honesty, clarity, and directness, urging us toward the global—as well as personal—transformation so desperately needed in our day. The book is gentle and yet strong, visionary and yet practical, pointing us ever toward the resources present, available, and simply awaiting our engagement. ‘Yes we can” be agents of healing and compassion! Field of Compassion shows us how."
