Product Description

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Jesuit theologian, mystic, renowned scientist, was also a prophet in the expanding dialogue between religion, science, and mysticism. His views put him on a collision course with his Jesuit superiors in France and church authorities in Rome. So, he devoted his long and fascinating life to scientific projects around the world while continuing to circulate his theological writings among friends. After his death in New York City, the publishing of his major works marked him as one of the most influential Catholic thinkers of the 20th century.

Spirit of Fire is the critically acclaimed biography of one of this century's most fascinating religious figures. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955) was a Jesuit theologian and a scientist renowned for his pioneering field work in geology, paleontology, and human origins. He was also a mystic whose writings have inspired an international host of Teilhard societies, and a prophet in the expanding dialogue between religion and science. Spirit of Fire is lavishly illustrated with photographs and selections from Teilhard's writings. It is the ideal introduction to the life and thought of this modern Catholic mystic whose powerful vision and life-affirming spirituality speak even more vitally to the concerns of our time.
