Journey through the life, thought, and works of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.
One of the most celebrated spiritual minds of the 20th century, Teilhard de Chardin was both a respected scientist and a Jesuit priest. He combined an evolutionary worldview with his commitment to the Christian tradition. A pioneer in the dialogue between religion and science, he remains a widely influential mystical voice.
Now, this program guides you through the timeless thought of Teilhard. Under the guidance of Teilhard expert Fr. Donald Goergen, you will explore Teilhard's writings, including Writings in Time of War, a collection of essays he wrote during World War I; the spiritual classic The Divine Milieu; and the groundbreaking The Human Phenomenon. In doing so, you will examine such powerful themes as cosmology, Christology, spirituality, the mystery of suffering, and our understanding of God. A restless spiritual seeker, Teilhard emphasized that the universe is unfinished, always on the move - and God, the Alpha and the Omega, is at its center. Teilhard will challenge you to think through the implications of God's creative action being made manifest in evolutionary terms. As you will discover, within this cosmic vision lies a new mysticism - the ability to see God in Christ and in all things.
With a remarkable capacity for synthesis, Teilhard invites all of us into his powerful, compelling vision of the universe. Join him on this mystical journey today.
