Celebrating Teilhard de Chardin

Pioneer in the Dialogue between Religion and Science

by Dr. Ursula King (University of Bristol, UK)

She has published numerous books and articles, especially on gender issues in religions, method and theory, modern Hinduism, interfaith dialogue, spirituality, and on the thought of Jesuit Teilhard de Chardin.
