Soul Story: Evolution and the Purpose of Life by Tim Freke (Author)



The grand religious stories that gave meaning to life and death in the past have crumbled under sceptical scrutiny. The dominant mainstream philosophy is now scientific objectivism, which describes a universe that exists for no reason and a life that ends in oblivion.

Pioneering philosopher Tim Freke addresses the ‘soul crisis’ in modern culture that has arisen from lack of meaning. He offers an intelligent ‘spiritual’ perspective on life and death to help us make sense of a paradoxical world, which is sometimes bleak and banal, but also can be magical and full of significance. He presents a revolutionary paradigm shift in our understanding of reality that integrates the deepest insights of science and spirituality to create a new model of human identity, which makes the idea of the immortal soul intellectually credible.

He explores the process of evolution, not as blind chance, but as the momentous story of the self-realising universe. The development of the material world has led to the emergence of ‘psyche’ or ‘soul’, which you are experiencing right now as a stream of thoughts and images that don?t exist in space and aren’t made of matter.

We are not insignificant specks in a vast purposeless cosmos. We are significant participants in the magnificent and meaningful story of soul. The universe is coming to know itself through each one of us and this process doesn’t end at death, because the evolution of soul has also been the evolution of immortality.

Tim Freke is an internationally respected authority on world spirituality and the bestselling author of more than 20 books, which have been translated into 15 languages. He is pioneering a new philosophy of awakening that has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. He presents life-changing events internationally and online. He has often been featured in the international media including the BBC and The History Channel. http://www.TimFreke.com

Soul Story by Tim Freke

Contemporary society is experiencing a soul crisis, caused by the demise of outdated religion and the rise of hard-headed science, which has left us adrift in a meaningless universe without purpose.

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 vision of the nature of reality and the deep purpose of life.

“Soul Story is one of those rare books that addresses the deepest question of life and existence in clear and understandable terms – with transparent logic and without dogmatism. Anyone interested in exploring these questions in company with the expert and even enlightened guidance of Tim Freke will gain lasting benefit — fresh insights that will enrich his or her life for the rest of his or her life.” — Ervin Laszlo.
