We are a product of our environment and right now, we're facing a crisis of human habitat. 

That's the view of author Murray Rae in his book Architecture and Theology: The Art of Place

The architect turned theologian says the way our structures are built now emphasise revenue, at the expense of beauty and spirituality. The book's just won this year's Ashton Wylie Mind Body Spirit Literary Award.

Professor of Theology at the University of Otago Murray Rae tells us more about his novel.
