Sir John Templeton: Supporting Scientific Research for Spiritual Discoveries
The Extraordinary Life of Sir John Templeton, now in his 90s, is updated in this revised edition of his biography. Here is the story of his childhood in rural Tennessee, education at Yale and Oxford, the legendary years during which he was christened the "wizard of Wall Street," his receiving Mutual Fund's Lifetime Achievement Award, and being knighted by Queen Elizabeth II. This book also focuses on Sir John's mission: to encourage a major scientific effort to obtain solid empirical data about spiritual realities, such as love, purpose, creativity, intellect, thanksgiving, prayer, humility, praise, thrift, compassion, invention, truthfulness, giving, and worship. Today his mission is carried out by the John Templeton Foundation through an ever-growing, wide range of programs and grants. These include programs that stimulate the teaching of university courses in science and religion, worldwide lecture programs organized around the concept of humility theology, and prizes for articles and essays that advance spiritual understanding and character development. This book also introduces some of the scientists, theologians, philosophers, writers, and fellow investors who now serve as staff and advisors to the John Templeton Foundation. Book jacket.
