Publisher's Summary

This is a presentation of Teilhard de Chardin's concept of purpose-driven evolution.

Darwin's famous thesis that evolution proceeds by chance, groping, and the survival of the fittest could be the case until the advent of the first human, the first creature who knew that he knew. Thereafter, continuing change becomes more and more by plan. The human being begins to take charge of evolution. There is still some chance and groping, but much of it is really planned trial that results in either success or failure - and we try again.

God, the Light, is the architect of all that is. His will, when manifested, becomes the purpose behind everything, the inanimate, animate, and the thinking layers or spheres of the universe.

In this book, the author uses chronological evolution as the outline as we observe the foundations of our universe and the unfolding of the phenomenon of "man". The evolutionary process as explained in the Human Phenomenon, a new edition of de Chardin's The Phenomenon of Man (1065 English edition), as edited and translated from the French 1955 edition by Sarah Appleton Weber in 1999, is categorized under four parts:

  1. Prelife
  2. Life
  3. Thought
  4. Superlife

Can a committed Christian believe in the theory of evolution?

What does the search for the light in evolution reveal about my place as a person in the development of the Earth?

disappointing religious tract

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

more context for and focus on the subject of the biography

What was most disappointing about Bernard Fleury’s story?

cult like presumptions on the reader of vague generalizations by an author with monomania

How could the performance have been better?

pronouncing the name of the subject of the book correctly, to start

What character would you cut from Teilhard de Chardin: The Search for the Light in Evolution?

the book would benefit from a diminishment the author's point of view and more about the subject of the non fiction biography it claims to be the subject of the book.

Any additional comments?

disappointing

The Reader Mispronounces Teilhard's Name, For Starts

I do not understand the purpose of this book at all. It is narrated with all the depth of a daytime television show. The first two chapters are specific outlines , first of the series of publications of which is one. , and then of this segment. The reader continues his narration like he was telling a bedtime story. It is jarring.

Poor Narratation

The narrator mispronounced the main topic of the book, throughout the read. It was impossible for me to get past this.
