Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

A member of the Sacred Heart Missionary Order, O'Murchu here offers one of the most intriguing rethinkings of Christian cosmology and theology since the death of his avowed model and inspiration, Teilhard de Chardin. For O'Murchu, Christian faith and the developments of science are not at war but working together toward a critical moment that may-if we do not destroy our planet-mean a kind of breakthrough rather than breakdown. "Incarnational becoming," in the author's view, may help us to see beyond our own or our species' survival, to something greater. For most collections.


—Graham Christian
