How can science contribute to a meaningful, spiritual creation story? David Christopher has taken the works of theologians, thinkers, and scientists such as Thomas Berry, Brian Swimme, Mary Evelyn Tucker, Daniel Quinn, Sr. Miriam MacGillis and many others to create a powerful new narrative that transforms the scientific facts of the Universe into a soulful story of creation that is reminiscent of humanity's stories of the ages. Through a dialogue between a Seeker and his Sage, the book explores the unfolding of the Universe, from the Beginning of All Beginnings, to the emergence of Earth and human beings, all the way to what the Sage calls the “Great Transformation,” brought on by the global crises that humanity now faces. As the two explore the implications of this new story, the Seeker finds his path. . . and why these crises just might be the best thing that ever happened to humanity.

David Christopher left behind corporate and airline careers to pursue his passion. For the past fifteen years he has immersed himself in the works of scientists and theologians who have brought forth a scientific story of the Universe. The dialogues within The Holy Universe are an outgrowth of this study as well as his work with the Pachamama Alliance's “Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream” Symposium. He wrote the book in part for people like him who call themselves “spiritual but not religious,” who are trying to make sense of the craziness going on in the world, and who seek a meaningful path through the global crises we collectively face.
