BOOKS I found Inspiring

Occasionally one comes across a book that proves to be an inspiring read. I guess such gems should not be kept for oneself. So, I will happily share a few from time-to-time. 


Delio, Ilia (2019), BIRTH of a DANCING STAR. This is Ilia's autobiography. An interesting and informative read. I found Chapter 13, on the interface between humans and modern technology especially informative and helpful. 

Haight, Roger (2019), FAITH AND EVOLUTION: A Grace-Filled Naturalism. Some wonderful insights in this book on the integration of evolution with our Christian faith.

Bregman, Rutger (2020), HUMANKIND: A Hopeful History. Thoroughly reserached optimistic view of human nature. A vey hopeful read for our troubled times. 

Sheldrake, Merlin (2020) THE ENTANGLED WEB: How Fungi Make Our World. A fascinating read on the interconnection of life, just below our feet. 

Kaku, Michio (2021), THE GOD EQUATION: The Quest for a Theory of Everything. Cutting-edge science by a popular science writer, accessable to the general reader.

Lent. Jeremy (2021), THE WEB OF MEANING. A big book (490 pages), but a very inspiring read on the complex questions of meaning arising in our time.

Armstrong, Karen (2022) SACRED NATURE. Highlighting how the different world religions endorse and support a spiritiuality of the natural world.

Simard, Suzanne (2022),
FINDING THE MOTHER TREE. From her life long experience studying trees, and living in the Canadian forests, this book highlights how trees communicate and relate closely with one another. Very original scientific research.
