By: Diarmuid O'Murchu
CATHOLIC PRESS ASSOCIATION BOOK AWARD! - FAITH AND SCIENCE
The incarnation and resurrection of Jesus, writes Diarmuid O’Murchu, marks a new evolutionary threshold and points the way towards the fulfillment of our destiny. We can continue in that direction… or destroy ourselves. It is our choice: to co-create with God, or co-destruct on our own. Incarnation shows us what we need to know to choose rightly.
Incarnation reveals how the notion of separateness – of “others” and “borders” and the earth as an object to exploit – endangers everyone and everything. O'Murchu expands the Christian idea of Incarnation to reveal a universal embodiment of Spirit. He shows how all forms of embodiment – from bacteria to the stars, from our children to strangers – evidence a God who loves bodies, and chooses the corporeal form in every initiative of co-creation.
Diarmuid O’Murchu is the author of many pioneering books that include Evolutionary Faith, Ancestral Grace, In the Beginning Was the Spirit, God in the Midst of Change, and Inclusivity (all Orbis). He lives in Ireland and speaks throughout the world.
