Publisher's Summary

In God and the Evolving Universe, James Redfield and Michael Murphy present an important message of hope and a vision for the future. The authors contend that thousands of years of human striving have delivered us to this very moment, in which each act of self-development is creating a new stage in planetary evolution and the emergence of a human species possessed of vastly expanded spiritual experience.

God and the Evolving Universe deepens our knowledge of personal growth and shows how each of us can begin to integrate our extraordinary experiences into a heightened, synchronistic flow and creative participation in the world.

©2002 James Redfield, Michael Murphy, and Sylvia Timbers. Recorded by arrangement with Jeremy P. Tarcher Inc., a division of Penguin Putnam Inc.; (P)2002 HighBridge Company

Critic Reviews

"Read with dignity and flawless pacing by Chris Ryan." (AudioFile)
"For those whose knowledge of evolutionary theory is scant, this book provides a good introduction in three parts: 'Awakening', which summarizes both Western and Eastern visionary thinkers; 'The Emerging Human Being', which explains the new spiritual potential; and 'Participating', which looks at the possible outcome of people operating on a superhuman level....Informative, thought-provoking, and challenging." (Library Journal)

Too many words

Struggled to finish. Academic nature of the work made it difficult to ascertain the point being made. After plowing through the many references to multiple resources the point being made was lost.

Technical Book-

What did you like best about God and the Evolving Universe? What did you like least?

It goes through the background and a bit of a history of our evolution.. the "meat" or practical stuff is in the last couple chapters.. This is the day to day practical stuff.<br/>Good Info

What three words best describe Chris Ryan’s performance?

Assists with Making something that has the potential to be dry.. a reasonable listen.

Was God and the Evolving Universe worth the listening time?

The How to in the last chapters useful and I am sure I will listen again.

Disappointing

A scientific treatment of spirituality. It reads like a list of books and authors. Dull, boring and unenlightened. It seems to be trying to monetize Redfield's past success. This is the first book which I considered a waste of money.

God and the Evolving Universe: The Next Step in Pe

This book may be good, But the audio is awful. I sounds like the narrator is talking from the bottom of a barrel Through a megaphone.
