God and the Evolving Universe: The Next Step in Personal Evolution

Front Cover
Jeremy P. Tarcher/Putnam, 2002 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 321 pages
It is no accident, argue James Redfield and Michael Murphy-the leading co-creators of today's spiritual boom-that the twentieth and twenty-first centuries have witnessed an explosion in human capacities. Daily we hear and read about supernormal athletic feats, clairvoyant perception, lives transformed by meditative practices, healing through prayer-and we ourselves experience these things. Many people's lives nowadays are marked by improved communication, a will to go beyond ego, synchronistic flow, and a sense of transcendent oneness and identity.

Indeed, the authors contend that thousands of years of human progress have delivered us to this very moment, in which each act of self-development is creating a new stage in planetary evolution-and the emergence of a human species possessed of vastly expanded personal abilities.

Written with the grace and ease of The Celestine Prophecy, God and the Evolving Universe features a broad range of exercises that readers can use to participate in everything they are reading about. Redfield's first major new work since 1999, God and the Evolving Universe is the only book to unite the personal and the planetary, and explain-like the proverbial butterfly that flaps its wings in China and causes a hurricane in New York-how each act of individual improvement and consciousness-raising, even as simple as lunchtime yoga, is part of a new evolutionary scheme.

This bold work heightens readers' awareness of their place in personal/planetary evolution and sets the stage for the new level in spiritual development.

About the author (2002)

When author and therapist James Redfield self-published his first novel in 1993, the groundswell of enthusiasm from booksellers and readers made The Celestine Prophecy one of the most successful self-published books of all time. Since 1994, The Celestine Prophecy has spent more than three years on the New York Times bestseller list and also appeared on bestseller lists around the world. In 1996, Redfield's The Tenth Insight: Holding the Vision also became an instant bestseller.
