Overview

Spirit of Fire is a popular biography of one of this century's most fascinating religious figures. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955) was a Jesuit theologian, mystic, and scientist renowned for his pioneering field work in geology, paleontology, and human origins. His writings have inspired an international host of Teilhard societies. He was also a prophet in the expanding dialogue between religion, science, and, mysticism. In his views of humanity, divinity, and the universe Teilhard anticipated the echotheology of Thomas Berry and the creation spirituality of Matthew Fox. As recounted in Spirit of Fire Teilhard's life intertwined a passionate intellect with spiritual adventure, a life of exploration of both the physical world and the soul. Steeped in the evolutionary views of contemporary science, Teilhard wrote with a rarely matched power of the real presence of God in the world. As King writes, Teilhard was a man "in love with the world, the world as a vast, living, tangible organism in which human beings belong as an integral part, and he was in love with God whose creative energy and living spirit pulsate throughout everthing that is."
