During the twentieth century, Jesuit priest-scientist Pierre Teilhaid de Chardin developed a truly innovative spirituality. By integrating both a comprehensive evolutionary perspective and the discoveries of science into Christian spirituality, Teilhard presented a new way to understand the Word of God and the immensity of the Universal Christ. While many books have explored and explained Teilhard's theology, there has never been a spiritual guide for everyday use of his principles-until now. Savary transforms these challenging and difficult-to-understand concepts into a more accessible spirituality. The Divine Milieu Explained also offers a series of spiritual practices and exercises that integrate science and faith according to Teilhaid's evolutionary spirituality. "His purpose....[was] to see spiritual reality today-in the world contemporary men and women live in. thoroughly informed and transformed by science and technology." Book jacket.
