First published in 1972, God Is Red remains the seminal work on Native American spiritual views, asking new questions about our species and our ultimate fate. Celebrating three decades in publication with a 2003 special 30th anniversary edition, this classic work reminds us to learn "that we are a part of nature, not a transcendent species with no responsibilities to the natural world." It is time again to listen to Vine Deloria Jr.'s powerful voice, telling us about spiritual traditions that are independent from Christianity and that reveres the interconnectedness of all living things. Deloria's books influenced generations and are important to North American cultural history. In God is Red Vine Deloria presents a comprehensive study of Native American religious views and argues that contemporary Christianity has failed in modern society.
