In the Beginning Was the Spirit
Number of pages: 254
An astonishing synthesis of humankind's understanding of the Great Spirit that energizes and runs through all Creation.
Poets knew it. Mystics knew it. Indigenous people knew it. Now Diarmuid O'Murchu unearths what religion has often forgotten or ignored — the power and presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives and in the breath of all things.
"An expansive and imaginative vision of a spirit-filled world!"—Amos Yong, author ofThe Spirit Poured Out on All Flesh
"Long recognized worldwide for his innovative and daring insights on the connections between Christian theology and other humanistic disciplines, O'Murchu displays once again his creative imagination and breathtaking ability to range over disparate academic fields to elaborate an innovative pneumatology. He helps us understand how the Holy Spirit dwells in the heart of the whole human history. His new work will inspire and sustain the spiritual journey of people in all walks of life and in all parts of the globe."—Peter Phan, author, Being Religious Interreligiously
"Diarmuid O'Murchu is one of the most respected evolutionary theologians alive today."—Michael Dowd, author, The Advent of Evolutionary Christianity
