Item description for Ancestral Grace: Meeting God in Our Human Story by Diarmuid O'Murchu...

Overview
This astounding account of humankind, from our beginnings in Africa seven million years ago through the life of Jesus to the present, blends history, anthropology, and spirituality to demonstrate that God has been and always will be with us. In what may be his most anticipated book ever, the author of Quantum Theology turns to the story of human origins, unearthing the spiritual significance of the amazing discoveries scholars have made in the last 50 years, mostly in Africa and most famously in the Odulvai Gorge of Tanzania. O'Murchu invites Christians, and theologians in particular, to consider a more expansive understanding of Incarnation, and how humanity's "deep past can empower us to embrace the profound challenges that face us today."

Reviews - What do customers think about Ancestral Grace: Meeting God in Our Human Story?

Ancestral Grace  Apr 24, 2009
I had hoped for more honestly. Omurchu's assertion that the data supporting general evolutionary theory has been misinterpreted in terms of the patriarchal prejudices of competition and separateness is interesting, and I am somewhat sympathetic to it. His feeling that we are more like bonobos than chimpanzees, and that our creative nature has been ignored is also interesting. Perhaps current theories would benefit from revisions that take these things into account, but the book has no serious structure of argument to support the thesis. It ends up being more like weak literary criticism rather than a serious challenge to current scientific paradigms of interpretation.
 
Provocative ideas that will challenge many Christians.  Nov 23, 2008
Most Christians would find this book hard to read. If one believes in the traditional understanding of Christology, this book will challenge this idea. The author argues that our understanding of God has been infected by the evil of patriarchy, and the apostles have misunderstood the true message of Jesus. If one wants to read a traditional understanding of Christology and evolution this book would not be for them. The author has many provocative ideas that will challenge many Christian and if one is willing to challenge ones views, then this book will provide this challenge.
 
Surely worth reading for those trying to balance their faith with logic  Nov 14, 2008
We have the records that Humanity has been around for much more than six thousand years, contrary to the literal interpretation of the Bible. "Ancestral Grace: Meeting God in Our Human Story" comes with a different perspective on God which blends the beliefs of many religions with what humanity knows as a science. Thought provoking, well researched, and with a new approach, "Ancestral Grace" is surely worth reading for those trying to balance their faith with logic.
