Synopsis

Finally! Someone has pulled together modern science with spiritual understanding. The result is a thought-provoking look at traditional Christian and other religious teachings without the mythology and a 2,000-year-old world-view. It challenges the reader to recommit to the values stemming from traditional religious teachings, but with a modern scientific understanding of how the universe came into being and functions. The author was ordained as a minister, but his studies and search for intellectual honesty led him to conclude that the ancient world-view of Biblical and other religions often don’t make any sense. This book offers help to those who likewise are fearless seekers of truth, feel some sort of spiritual connection, but don’t feel totally comfortable with what religious tradition teaches about creation, afterlife, prayer, sin, and miracles. Humorous and challenging stories of the author’s own struggles interweave with modern physics and the psychology of human consciousness to provide a very readable, no-nonsense, down to earth understanding of why people are spiritual. It reaffirms that human beings are a totality of mind, body, and spirit but challenges philosophical and religious teachings to correspond with the current knowledge we have gained in science, medicine, psychology, and every day experience. The book’s central thesis is that human beings through evolution have become the conscious mind of God and now have the responsibility of co-creation on Earth.
