9781846949371: Blue Sky God: The Evolution of Science and Christianity

Blue Sky God interprets some new scientific theories with blue sky thinking to bring radical insights into God, Jesus and humanity, drawing also on some deep wells from the past in the writings of the early Christians. In an accessible style, it looks at science research and theories in areas such as quantum physics and consciousness, epigenetics, morphic resonance and the zero point field. From there, seeing God as the compassionate consciousness at the ground of being, it draws together strands to do with unitive consciousness and the Wisdom way of the heart. Throughout, it seeks to encourage an evolution in understanding of the Christian message by reinterpreting much of the theological language and meaning that has become ‘orthodoxy' in the West. In doing so, it challenges many of the standard assumptions of Western Christianity. It outlines a spiritual path that includes elements from all of the world's great religions, is not exclusive, and yet has a place of centrality for Jesus the Christ as a Wisdom teacher of the path of transformative love.

About the Author:

Don MacGregor is an Anglican Priest living in Fishguard, West Wales. He has been a university chaplain, a science teacher and a youth-worker. He is married with 3 daughters.

Review:

This is a brave and important book, dispelling confusions and misunderstandings, and making clear the relevance of a Christian path today. Don MacGregor integrates modern science, mystical experience, history, philosophy and biblical scholarship in a new synthesis that shows how religious practice is evolving in the twenty-first century. I particularly enjoyed his discussions of the Holy Trinity and the Virgin Birth. As the old dogmas of science and materialism break down, he gives good grounds for hope. (Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, author of 'A New Science of Life', 'The Science Delusion' and others) A refreshing and ground-breaking book that opens up new avenues of understanding between spirituality, science and religion by formulating the Divine as the Ground of Being as Compassionate Consciousness and the role of Jesus as an exemplar of one who transcended his Egoic Operating System and replaced it with a fully developed Heart Operating System - thus showing us the transformative way of love and wisdom and thereby changing the morphic field of humanity. Dons new versions of the confession and creed come across as contemporary while remaining authentic to the tradition. The book is a bold and necessary statement. (David Lorimer, Programme Director of The Scientific and Medical Network, President of the Wrekin Trust.)
