Description

A classic work by the great Jesuit theologian and anthropologist whose writings were not allowed to be published until after his death.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin was more famous after his death in 1955 than during his life when he worked as a geologist in France and in China where he was one of the discoverers of "Peking Man."

The Divine Milieu is an essential companion to Teilhard de Chardin's The Phenomenon of Man and expands on the spiritual message so basic to his thought. He shows how man's spiritual life can become a participation in the destiny of the universe.
