Dialogues on Creation, Darkness, and the Soul in Spirituality and ScienceBook - 1996
The chasm between science and religion has been a source of both intellectual and spiritual tension for centuries, but in these groundbreaking dialogues there is nothing to be found except a remarkable consonance between these two once-opposing camps. In Natural Grace, authors Rupert Sheldrake and Matthew Fox show that not only is the synthesis of science and spirituality possible, but it is truly unavoidable when one considers the extraordinary insights they have both come upon in their work. Sheldrake, who has changed the face of modern science with his groundbreaking theory of morphic resonance, and Fox, whose work in creation spirituality has had a significant impact on people's sense of spirit, balance each other perfectly with their utterly unique yet highly complementary points of view. In this inspired series of talks a variety of ancient topics--including ritual, prayer, the soul, and the nature of are freed from the past and given new power for the future. Through these valuable exchanges, readers will gain deeper insight into the mysteries of the universe and discover a truly majestic sense of the sacred in everyday life. Dynamic and thought-provoking, what results from these dialogues is truly greater than the sum of its parts and will provide science and religion with much to consider for the twenty-first century.
