Brian Swimme, and Mary Ellen Tucker give us their offering called Journey of the Universe. On page 2 they say: “The great discovery of contemporary science is that the universe in not simply a place, but a story – a story in which we are immersed, to which we belong, and out of which we arose.” I invite you to enter into their deep insights with wonder and joy.
Cosmology and Creation by Paul Brockelman Many have said we need a new story to bring together the scientific and spiritual understandings of life so that our young may live whole lives again. This book is one of the many that attempts to lay out the chapters of such a story. This new story needs to help us rediscover the spiritual insights and practices lying at the core of all the world’s religious traditions. It will help us connect our spiritual and scientific experiences in a way that opens the wonder of awe once again. This new story is not an enemy of the human spirit, but an expression of it.
