by Charles David Pruett

Overview

When Copernicus, Galileo, and Kepler -- all deeply religious -- dislodged the earth from the center of the universe, science and religion separated. Darwin's theory of evolution brought outright divorce. But now, as Pruett writes, a third scientific revolution promises the reconciliation of reason and intuition by bringing a new dimension of spirituality to our scientific understanding of the cosmos -- and to the unique place of humans in it.

Reason and Wonder embraces the insights of modern science and the wisdom of spiritual traditions to "re-enchant the universe" and to provide a new "myth of meaning" appropriate to the current era. The new myth, which unfolds through the stories of three successive "Copernican revolutions" -- cosmological, biological, and spiritual -- offers both an expansive view of human potential and hope for a future currently in grave jeopardy.
