Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"For those of us who have respect for the scientific method—but who also call ourselves 'spiritual but not religious,' who seek a spirituality unburdened by the chains of dogma, who seek a deep connection with Creation that is based in awe and reverence for nature and the cosmos—David Christopher has done a marvelous job in helping us reclaim the word 'Holy.'"  —John Robbins, author, The Food Revolution

"Insightful and thought-provoking; connects the dots between challenges faced by ancient cultures and those confronting us today, in ways that inspire us all to take action."  —John Perkins, author, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

"The story of our shared origins—not just as humanity or even life, but as the Universe itself—must be told again and again for us to come home once more in time and space, to be at ease and connected. David’s telling as a conversation between Sage and Seeker brings the vastness of the story closer to our daily experience. His is a fresh and accessible voice." —Vicki Robin, coauthor, Your Money or Your Life

"From past to present, from mythos to mapping a practical path, The Holy Universe offers powerful insights, inspiring us all to care and then take conscious action from a deeply connected place." —Julia Butterfly Hill, author, The Legacy of Luna
