Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
O'Murchu is a London-based priest and social psychologist whose previous works include Quantum Theology and Our World in Transition; his latest uses the insights of science and the convictions of environmentalism to suggest that humanity's next evolution will both unite humanity with the life of the planet and bring us closer to God. O'Murchu is, in effect, a post-Teilhardian theologian, and as Teilhard de Chardin is rather little discussed nowadays, O'Murchu's ideas may be of great interest to the spiritual seeker.
