Abstract:

"For nearly three decades, Sir John Templeton has inspired and supported scientific research that expands spiritual understanding. "None of us has ever understood even one percent of the reality of God, the infinity, the eternity of God," Sir John has said. "All that we have learned is still tiny compared to what is still yet to be discovered if we search for it."" "Spiritual Information is a collection of one hundred essays by leading experts in various professional fields. Together, these essays offer a thorough interdisciplinary study of ourselves, of our planet, and of our universe. They present an overview of how far we have come in our discovery of spiritual information, and at the same time, they open windows to the vast possibilities for additional research. This collection serves as a tribute to Sir John's vision that continues to inspire a global dialog between science and religion."--BOOK JACKET.
