“The voice that comes through on the pages of “Natural Religion” is calm, compassionate, reflective. Ferris embraces differences, seeks commonality, and stays as open as a child to possibility. These attitudes help him explain the nearly inexplicable: simply, sensibly, tolerantly.” … “In small bites without bombast or pretense, he laments the wounds caused by our separation from nature; he explains that religion and nature are one; he shows the deep connections among the world’s religions; and he addresses human nature: We are better than we think we are!”

Rebecca Rule in the Portsmouth Herald, June 20, 2004

“Brimming with ideas and overflowing with feeling, Natural Religion reminds us of what is most important in life – our connection with the Cosmos, the world around us and one another. For those who ask themselves life’s most profound questions, Neal Ferris is the perfect guide as he lifts out of diverse traditions the best they have to offer and points us in new directions toward the future we can claim, if only we would. Read this book, feel its power and be grateful for its wisdom.”

– William F. Schulz, Executive Director, Amnesty International USA; President, Unitarian Universalist Association, 1985-93

“The psychic wound that keeps us from living in harmony with the cosmos and the path toward spiritual and emotional healing are the subjects of Neal Ferris’ Natural Religion, a wide-ranging volume equally at home with the data of cutting edge science and the lore of ancient myth. Ferris is not afraid to ask the big questions. He is bold enough to propose answers that will give readers a heightened sense of wonder and oneness with all creation.”

– Gary Kowalski, author, The Souls of Animals and Science and the Search for God

"A world-saving, heartwarming message: clear, concise, thoughtful, compelling - and full of good common sense. At a time when the world so desperately needs spiritual awakening, Neal Ferris shows the way and gives us hope. Natural Religion is a compelling, thought-provoking book. Once I started it, I could not put it down."

- Peter Fernald, Professor of Psychology, University of New Hampshire

“Your [work] does me great justice and I thank you for your efforts at public communication, whereas my work was largely academic.”

– Charles Hartshorne, internationally known for his creative process philosophy and theology – letter to Neal Ferris, 1997
