Dancing with the Sacred: Evolution, Ecology, and Godby Karl Peters
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
God is a creative process or event, according to Karl Peters. By participating with that creativity, we can learn to live in harmony with the rest of life on planet Earth, and live meaningfully in a world in which suffering and death are intertwined with life. Using insights from evolutionary biology, process theology, and the worlds faith traditions, Peters teaches us how to dance with the sacred.
Karl Peters has created an astonishing new dialogue between science and religion. Using insights from evolutionary biology, process theology, and the range of world religions, he proposes that evolution can provide a key to becoming religious. God is like a dance, he says, and by participating in this creative process we are dancing with the Sacred.
Karl Peters, culminating a lifetime of leadership in the science and religion dialogue, offers a rare combination of both theory and practice, the learned and the existential. Here is an exemplary role model of participating in the creative process — what Peters metaphorically calls 'dancing with the sacred.' — Holmes Rolston, University Distinguished Professor, Colorado State University>
