Natural Grace : Dialogues on Science and Spirituality
British biologists Rupert Sheldrake and American priest Matthew Fox share an interest in going beyond the current limitations of institutional science and mechanistic religion. They both believe that as a new millennium dawns, a new vision is needed which brings together science, spirituality and a sense of the sacred. Their separation underlies the present crises of ecological devastation, despair and disempowerment. How else can hope in a new sense of meaning be awakened if not by the coming together of those two powerful traditions that were rent asunder in the 17th century? A new cosmology is needed that speaks to hearts as well as to minds. This volume presents dialogues, which emerged as Sheldrake and Fox spoke together in public and private settings on both sides of the Atlantic. They are preliminary explorations into this new territory. They examine the implications that flow from a recognition of living nature and the ways of grace. Rupert Sheldrake is the author of "Seven Experiments That Could Change the World". Matthew Fox is the author of "Original Blessing".
