DAY 27 – REGAINING COMPASSION for HUMANITY and NATURE by Charles Birch
“Charles Birch is one of the most exciting and provocative scientists writing on fundamental issues today,” according to Paul Davies.
Whether or not you agree with his theological conclusions, this book will make you think. It is especially recommended to those who think that science has all of the answers – Paul R Ehrlich
I heard winning Australian author Charles Birch speak about the rebirth of compassion, for ourselves, each other and our planet, and set about finding his book, (with great difficulty), many years ago, in fact, over 14 years ago. It is heavy going and the constraints of time and many other books TBR, have thus far prevented me from reading it.
In the book, I one day will read, Birch presents a persuasive argument that only compassion has the power to enrich and heal a world which too often seems senseless, unintelligible and accidental.
An important contribution to the science/religion dialogue.
Something to Ponder About, when I get to reading it.
