“An ideal classroom resource for college, university, and seminary courses on spirituality.” —Religious Studies Review
Christ in All Things offers both a concise introduction to the spiritual vision of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and a fascinating survey of contemporary themes in spirituality through a “Teilhardian” lens. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955) was a French Jesuit theologian and scientist, renowned for his efforts to integrate Christian theology with the insights of evolutionary theory and modern cosmology. Though Teilhard’s voice was marginalized during his lifetime, today his insights underlie many of the most important trends in contemporary spirituality.
Ursula King shows how Teilhard’s perception of “Christ in all things” was the key to his holistic vision. In successive chapters she examines how many contemporary discussions—concerning the sources of Christian spirituality, the role of mysticism, interfaith dialogue, ecological concerns, and the dialogue between faith and science—were prefigured in his work.
Ursula King was a co-founder of the Teilhard Centre in London. Her many books include Spirit of Fire: The Life and Vision of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin; Pierre Teilhard de Chardin: Essential Writings; and Christian Mystics: Their Lives and Legacies Throughout the Ages.
