Taking the form of a diary, in which each day the author explores the world of nature and the sciences through the light of faith, A Biography of the Spirit opens our minds to the breathtaking beauty of the universe and our hearts to the transcendent glory of the Lord and Giver of all life.
“A book of stupendous wonder and holy mystery —simple and profound, brilliant and bold. It is a story of God’s Spirit seeping through the amazing discoveries of modern science, as if the Spirit is burrowing through the crevices of life’s intricate web, creating something new. Read slowly, pause and ponder, for the deep down freshness of life’s energy is none other than God.”—Ilia Delio, OSF, author, The Unbearable Wholeness of Being
"John Haughey re-enchants our late modern mentality in conversation with the cognitive, physical, natural, and environmental sciences to unveil a pneumatologically charged cosmos, one perhaps even more Spirit-filled than premodern believers imagined. The way is reopened with A Biography of the Spirit to discerning afresh the spiritual dimensions of our created existence in an evolutionary world."--Amos Yong, Fuller Theological Seminary and author, Theology & Down Syndrome: Reimagining Disability in Late Modernity
