Item description for Christ in Evolution by Ilia Delio...
Overview A new way of looking at evolution - one that opens our eyes to the unfolding love of God. Ilia Delio transcends the debate on evolution and intelligent design to reveal the Christ who is at the center of our lives in a complete universe. She draws on mystics and theologians to show the love of God at the heart of a total redemptive process, not just physical but spiritual, cosmic, and cultural, and taking place in human consciousness. Christ in Evolution is a lucid antidote to the current crop of "new atheism" books that argue there is no place in the universe for the notion that there may be a God, let alone a God of love. Ilia Delio offers not a "brief " but a way of seeing the universe and our place in it with a vision that is more compelling because it is at once faithful to science and infused with spiritual insights that are "ancient and ever new."
Publishers Description Ilia Delio goes beyond the debate on evolution and intelligent design to reveal the Christ who is at the center of our lives in a complete universe. She draws on mystics and theologians to locate the love of God at the heart of a total redemptive process, not just physical but cosmic, cultural, spiritual, and taking place in human consciousness. Along the way, she offers surprising insights on issues such as artificial intelligence, technology, the search for extraterrestrial life, and, most of all, the meaning of Christ in our lives and our role as co-creators. Christ in Evolution is not an argument but a way of seeing the universe and our place in it with a vision that is "ancient but ever new.
