9781479735099: The Story of Human Spiritual Evolution

This book is one of a kind. It traces the history of human awareness of God and belief back to its earliest roots, long before the Bible, the Koran, the Upanishads and other writings. It shows how the foundation for belief in God was contained within the instant of creation itself. Scientists call this the big bang. It shows that as the universe developed there came a point in human development where we had the capability to begin to be aware of an afterlife. These ideas were primitive by our standards today but they served to create a solid foundation for increasing complex and more thorough understandings of who God is and our relationship with Him. This book covers the well known axial age where there was a watershed or flood of prophets and holy men who advanced understandings of both philosophy and theology and science in the hundreds of years before the coming of Jesus Christ. In a real sense they prepared the way for God's son and His gospel. It is these men who changed the course of human understanding of God with new revolutionary ideas that advanced the self revelation of God to humankind. The last part of the book looks at religion today and how we got here and ends with God's view of humanity as we constantly strive toward God on our individual spiritual journeys.

About the Author:

Richard Ferguson has been called a modern renaissance man. He holds a degree in chemistry, a minor in philosophy, a master's degree in business, a master's degree in pastoral ministry majoring in spirituality. He is also holds a commercial pilots license with flight instructor ratings. He is already a published spiritual author having written "A Real Life Christian Spiritual Journey" He is also a Reiki Master and has been a spiritual seeker ever since a divine being unexpectedly appeared to him while riding in a commercial airliner high above the Pacific Ocean. It was an event that changed the direction of his life. Rich has said about the encounter that the amount of pure divine love that poured into my heart from that divine being was something that goes beyond human understanding. The Bible says seek and you will find, and Rich has found a very close relationship with God that has given him spiritual blessings that he uses for the benefit of others. Rich has a scientific background. He worked for NASA in the planetary branch. With these experiences and education he has a deep inner desire to demonstrate that both science and religion are actually two sides of the same sacred coin. There is a pervasive unity that joins all of creation together into a divine mosaic in which we all live. This mosaic is what we call the universe of both the seen and unseen. One day humankind will realize this.
