Read full description of the books Evolutionary Faith: Rediscovering God in Our Great Story:
The book presents interesting ideas, incorporating concepts from quantum physics, evolutionary biology, history and thoughts from major religions, especially Christianity and Buddhism. As someone who was raised in the Catholic Church, I was quite surprised with O'Murchu's ideas, since he is a Catholic priest--he rejects central teachings of the Catholic Church. I performed a Google search and learned that the Catholic Church disavows O'Murchu's ideas, as presented in this book.
I believe that O'Murchu correctly identifies major problems that humanity faces at this point in time: war, the destruction of our environment, the disparity in wealth distribution, the power of transnational corporations, etc. At a cultural level, O"Murchu speaks against patriarchy and the will to power and control that characterize our "civilization."
On the downside, I found the book somewhat repetitive and some of the concepts fuzzy and not adequately supported analytically or by facts or citations.
I enjoyed the book and found it fresh and interesting. I look forward to reading other works by O'Murchu. I am particularly interested in how he reconciles his beliefs with being a priest in the Catholic church, one of the most patriarchal institutions in the history of mankind.
