Publisher's Synopsis

The Divine Milieu expands on the spiritual message so basic to his thought. He shows how man's spiritual life can become a participation in the destiny of the universe.


"Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, a Jesuit priest, was both a scientist (a geologist) and a theologian. His life (1881-1955) overlapped that of Einstein (1879-1955). It was a period of enormous discoveries about the universe. The scientific progress of that era moved him to greater faith and to a vision of all of creation that centered on Christ.

De Chardin’s overall position is that God has chosen to make Jesus the center of the universe’s life, not just human life. The task of human beings, in this vision, is to help God complete the maturation of all creation on the Last Day – when creation arrives at the Pleroma”.     ~Dan Brent


"Across the immensity of time and the disconcerting multiplicity of individuals, one single operation is taking place: the annexation to Christ of his chosen. Nobody in the world can save us, or lose us. But our salvation is achieved in solidarity."
