Editorial Reviews

Review

Her unique, compelling book is her creative synthesis of science and spirituality, can effectively guiding readers toward a positive future. -- Ewert Cousins, Professor Emeritus of Theology, Fordham University.

Mary Coelho has created a guidebook for every serious contemplation of the cultural and spiritual significance of contemporary science. -- Brian Swimme, California Institute of Integral Studies

From the Back Cover

"I have feelings of deep gratitude for the work that Mary Coelho has done. As I have read it I am sometimes moved to tears as it confirms what my heart has known all along. Mary’s gift is that she is at home in the scientific venture but she is patient and careful as she demystifies the language and learning of its quantum pioneers." Sr. Miriam Therese MacGillis, OP, co-founder of Genesis Farm, Earth Literacy Center, N.J.

"Many times as I was reading, I thought of the unnameable people in the future who will be served, touched, guided, inspired by her insights, scholarship, intuition and vision. Mary Coelho has created a guidebook for every serious contemplation of the cultural and spiritual significance of contemporary science. A distinguished and vibrant work integrating science and spirituality in ways directly relevant to contemporary society’s deepest challenges." Brian Swimme, California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, Ca. & Dir. of the Center for the Story of the Universe.

"In this time of global crisis, the human race is caught up in the greatest transformation of consciousness in history. To make the transition into the future, we need guides who are learned in both science and spirituality and are gifted with a vision of hope for the future. Mary Coelho is such a guide for she has been trained as a scientist and as a specialist in classical Western spirituality, including the vision of Teilhard de Chardin, Thomas Berry and Brian Swimme. What makes her book unique and compelling is her own creative synthesis of science and spirituality that can effectively guide the reader toward a positive future." Ewert Cousins, Professor Emeritus of Theology, Fordham University.
