The Divine Milieu Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The essential companion to Pierre Teilhard de Chardin's The Phenomenom of Man, The Divine Milieu expands on the spiritual message so basic to his thought. He shows how man's spiritual life can become a participation in the destiny of the universe.

Teilhard de Chardin — geologist, priest, and major voice in twentieth-century Christianity — probes the ultimate meaning of all physical exploration and the fruit of his own inner life. The Divine Milieu is a spiritual treasure for every religion bookshelf.

In 1951 he moved to New York where under the auspices of the Wenner-Gren Foundation he was enabled to continue his work until his death in 1955. Le Phénomène Humain, issued in France in December of that year, was immediately pronounced one of the outstanding publishing events of the century.
