Building on the foundations of Teilhard de Chardin, this dynamic work elegantly explores the ongoing challenges of the next leap in human development.
 
“I know of scarcely anybody,” Bede Griffiths has said, “who goes to the heart of reality as profoundly as Beatrice Bruteau does.” Here Bruteau develops a Trinitarian anthropology with the potential for healing our conflict-ridden planet by transforming us from riven and conflicting individuals, into open, sharing persons of the New Creation. In transcendent freedom, a profound communion consciousness gives birth to global, wholistic community.
 
Bruteau’s integral vision is as compelling as it is concrete. In this work of philosophical, theological, and psychological anthropology, she presents a cogent spiritual praxis that possesses the power to initiate a psychic revolution. “A new way of seeing,” Teilhard has exclaimed, “combined with a new way of acting—that is what we need.” This is precisely what Beatrice Bruteau offers in The Grand Option.
