Journey of the Universe is both a book and film by Mary Evelyn Tucker and Brian Swimme that offers an outline of “the universe story”—a moving narrative of cosmic evolution from the origins of the cosmos until our present moment. This project, drawing inspiration from the vision of Teilhard de Chardin and Thomas Berry, hopes to awaken a sense of wonder and awe in the face of cosmic processes, and to arouse an ecological consciousness that will inspire our commitment to the flourishing of the Earth community. Thomas Berry called this “the Great Work” of our times. This volume explore the specifically Christian responses to the Universe Story and its implications for the contemporary environmental crisis. Beginning with excerpts from recent statements by Pope Francis and the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, the book draws on the contributions of theologians, ethicists, scientists, and activists, including John Haught, Ilia Delio, Catherine Keller, Larry Rasmussen, and more than twenty-five others. 199612 Mary Evelyn Tucker;John Grim;, Mary Evelyn Tucker, John Grim
