A landmark effort in the work of evolutionary theology, From Teilhard to Omega will be of interest to scholars, students, and seekers alike.
"Ilia Delio has challenged a team of Teilhard experts by asking them, in their fields, to envision how unfinished humanity's convergent journey toward Omega has progressed in complexity and consciousness since Teilhard's day. It's a hope-filled book, exploring Teilhard's realm of the 'not yet,' spilling over with fascinating and prophetic thoughts and images on things to come." --Louis Savary, Ph.D., S.T.D., author, The New Spiritual Exercises
"A useful and much overdue contribution! These wonderfully diverse and helpful essays will open up many new access routes to a Christian mystic whose time has definitely arrived." --The Rev. Cynthia Bourgeault, Ph.D., author, The Wisdom Jesus and The Holdy Trinity and the Law of Three
