Just a moment ago on the cosmic scale, a living creature began to wonder who it was, where it had come from, and where it might be going. Thousands of years of evolutionary progress have delivered the human species to this precise moment today when each act of individual improvement contributes to a new stage of evolution, a new kind of existence of earth.
At a time when the need for spiritual connection and hope in the world is profound, God and the Evolving Universe portrays a new vision of human possibility. Our ordinary way of being in the world can suddenly blossom into the extraordinary. Daily awakenings—those brief glimpses of a higher intelligence, of a destiny that wants to be actualized in us—become the stuff of compelling shifts to a larger sense of self. Inner wakefulness will lead to discoveries about our untapped capacities for extraordinary life.
A bold new work that unites the planetary and the personal in one broad stroke, God and the Evolving Universe describes a human species that is evolving by small and large steps toward epochal change. Global perspectives of evolutionary change paired with exercises that help readers develop their personal abilities create the foundation for transcendence to the next level of human potential.

In God and the Evolving Universe three spiritual visionaries--authors James Redfield and Michael Murphy, and filmmaker Sylvia Timbers--join together to offer a hopeful prophecy. Their basic premise is that we have reached an exciting point in history where human evolution and planetary evolution are about to collide, creating an entirely new and spiritually enlightened world. On the human track, the authors claim we have been working toward this era of enlightenment for some time. They point to the emergence of extraordinary human capabilities, such as clairvoyants and even amazing athletic feats that incorporate an altered state of consciousness. (They site baseball slugger Mark McGwire's mind-altering visualization techniques before a game.) The authors also offer stories and events that suggest an increase in love and spiritual growth around the world. Redfield gave us The Celestine Prophecy, a bestseller that was faulted for being too simplistic. While the writing in God and the Evolving Universe is not simplistic, it sometimes falters into metaphysical black holes and psycho-spiritual labyrinths. Yet the message is inspirational: We're on the right path and good things are ahead. And God knows, the world could use more of these positive visions. --Gail HudsonAbout the Author:
