Synopsis

In the spirit of Teilhard de Chardin, David Toolan unites science and spirituality in a stunning new way. By accenting the positive idea that our evolutionary cosmos is filled with promise, Toolan shows that a Christ-centered, incarnational faith is the most appropriate setting for contemporary scientific cosmology. The result is a fresh basis for an ecological ethic, in effect a new social contract with nature.

At once visionary and practical, At Home in the Cosmos offers a holistic vision sure to expand awareness of our place and purpose on earth and in the universe.
