In the Beginning Was the Spirit: Science, Religion and Indigenous Spirituality ~ Diarmuid O’Murchu

An astonishing synthesis of humankind’s understanding of the Great Spirit that energizes, sustains, and runs through all creation.

Poets knew it. Mystics knew it. Indigenous people knew it. Now Diarmuid O’Murchu unearths what religion has often forgotten or ignored — the power and presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives and in the breath of all things.

Using insights from science and spirituality O Murchu recaptures the enduring fascination of an ancient belief. He gives us a contemporary and unforgettable understanding of the Source of everything.

In the Beginning Was the Spirit is the crowning achievement of an author whose seminal works have influenced the way we understand God, religion and the world.
