Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955), a French Jesuit priest and scientist, charted a new path in reconciling Christian theology with evolutionary science. Though church officials in his lifetime rejected his work, his posthumously published writings have illuminated many of the most pressing issues of our time. In particular, he articulated a new mystical vision, in tune with the findings of science and our expanding knowledge of the universe. This book, by a theologian-scientist, examines Teilhard’s mysticism, showing how science can help to illuminate the mystical path, while also demonstrating the compatibility between Teilhard’s thought and current frontiers in scientific exploration.
Kathleen Duffy is a Sister of St. Joseph who has a PhD. in molecular physics from Drexel University. She is a Professor of Physics at Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia. She is the author of Rediscovering Teilhard’s Fire.
