Evolution and the purpose of life

Format: Paperback

Soul Story



Contemporary society is experiencing a 'soul crisis', caused by the demise of outdated religion and the rise of hard-headed science, which has left us adrift in a purposeless cosmos, waiting for a meaningless death.

Pioneering philosopher Tim Freke offers a bold alternative to this bleak worldview, by urging a radical shift in our understanding of both science and spirituality.

He explores the new philosophy he calls 'emergent spirituality', which combines an innovative perspective on the scientific theory of evolution with a fresh understanding of perennial spiritual insights, to create a beautiful new vision of the nature of reality and the deep purpose of life.

Evolution has been a 13.8 billion year journey leading from the big bang to you right now, reading these words and understanding their meaning in your ‘psyche’ or ‘soul’. Is this just a fortuitous accident in a cosmos that exists for no reason?

Tim articulates a clear way of understanding the deep intuition that life is much more than that, and proposes that the process of evolution has not only seen the emergence of matter and life, but also the emergence of the soul-dimension that creates the magic and meaning of existence, which science ignores.

Evolution is the momentous story of the self-realising universe, which is coming to know itself through each one of us … and this process doesn’t end at death, because the evolution of soul has been accompanied by the evolution of immortality.
