Book Description

Spiritual Information
 is a collection of one hundred essays that explore a portion of the vast interdisciplinary approaches to the study of science and religion. Individually and together, the essays show how the study of ourselves, our planet, and the universe helps us understand our place as spiritual beings within God's universe.

The book is a tribute to Sir John Templeton and his pioneering commitment toward new research that results in "one hundredfold more spiritual information than humankind has ever possessed before." It begins with essays that reflect on Sir John's principal domains of interest and expertise: free-enterprisebased finance and accelerating spiritual progress.

Themes of the sections are:

  • Science-Religion Dialogue
  • Cosmology, Physics, and Astronomy
  • Mathematics, Musicology, and Speculation
  • Biological Evolution—the Human Being
  • Social Evolution—the Human Mind and Heart
  • Religion and Health
  • The Nature of the Divine
  • Theology and Philosophy
  • Faith Traditions
