Teilhard de Chardin and the Mystery of Christ
Teilhard de Chardin and the Mystery of Christ Author:Christopher F. Mooney Today, years after his death, the tremendous impact of the thought of Teilhard de Chardin is being felt not only by scientists, philosophers, and theologians, but by all men searching for meaning in their lives. In Teilhard de Chardin and the Mystery of Christ, Christopher Mooney, a fellow Jesuit who has read and evaluated every available sourc... more »e on Teilhardian thought, presents for believer and non-believer alike a brilliant analysis of the key theme in his writings-the relationship of man and the world to Christ.
Father Mooney's acute insights into the mind of Teilhard and his vast knowledge of his thought are evident throughout the book. He reveals Teilhard's life to be a personal search for unity between God and the world. How this basic anxiety was reconciled in his life-and for every man-is analyzed in subsequent chapters on the theological importance of evolution, the Christ of the Gospels and of the Eucharist as the center of the human world, the significance of Christ's death and resurrection, and the role of the Church in human destiny. A final appraisal of the influence of Teilhardian beliefs upon contemporary and future Christological thought will bring to the reader a deeper understanding of this great thinker's philosophy of hope and optimism so urgently needed in this era of change and uncertainty.« less
