First published in 1996, this book sought to answer the question: What does it mean to be human, to live on planet Earth, in the universe as it is now understood? Now, with a new introduction and the fresh perspective of more than twenty years of study, Swimme continues his quest to reveal the "new story" that is developing in response to this age-old question.

Through the fascinating stories of pioneering ministers, this book reveals a unique picture of progressive changes occurring in the Christian tradition. Meeting challenges and overcoming obstacles, these twelve diverse ministers are changing the church as they take prophetic stands on gender, race, interfaith cooperation, ecology, sexual orientation, economic opportunity, and other social justice issues. Believing in the power of sacred symbolism to shape social reality and to provide a foundation for justice and freedom for all people, these ministers lead worship with inclusive language and imagery for humanity and divinity. They include multicultural female and male images of the Divine. Their stories affirm the connection between this expansive theology and an ethic of justice and equality in human relationships. In working from within to change the church, these ministers have risked censure by denominational authorities, loss of opportunities for promotion to larger congregations or to prestigious denominational positions, and even loss of their jobs. They have found creative ways to balance advocating for change and working to support the church, using their positions as ordained clergy to bring liberating change to the church and the wider culture.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955) was a French Jesuit theologian and scientist renowned for his pioneering field work in paleontology. His visionary writings on the reconciliation of faith and evolutionary theory aroused the suspicions of the Vatican and he was forbidden to publish on religious matters during his lifetime. After his death, the publication of his many books marked him as one of the most influential Catholic thinkers of this century -- a mystic whose holistic vision speaks with growing relevance to contemporary spirituality. Often considered ahead of his time, Teilhard's writings have more relevance and impact on our current times than when he was first published.

K. Chesterton to Teilhard de Chardin. Book jacket.

'What force prompts human beings to destroy other people, nations and our environment -- ignoring the results and knowledge gleaned from thousands of years of evolution?' This volume explores that question, with which it opens. The book is the product for four remarkable women from quite different backgrounds -- Christian, Jewish, Muslim -- whose co-operation is a living example of the approach to life and religion that they commend.
