    1. In Quantum Theology: Spiritual Implications of the New Physics, Diarmuid O’Murchu summarizes the move from a classical model of scientific knowledge to a more “wholistic” approach demanded by current understandings of quantum physics. Quoting Meg Wheatley (Harvard-trained expert in organizational behavior), he quickly establishes the reason this is significant for modern thinkers who are not necessarily in the so-called scientific fields. “I try hard to discipline myself to remain aware [...]

    2. A very thought-provoking, provocative, and dense book that uniquely uses recent discoveries and theories within quantum science to build a systematic theology of human spirituality. I have not encountered anything like it before. I suspect that the book never hit popular markets due to its reliance on complicated concepts and largely undeveloped quantum science. However, I found it fascinating, and many of the author's conclusions ring true to experience. The author sees religion as "the greates [...]

    3. I believe that the relationship between science and theology needed to brought to the fore front of conversations. We spend lots of time trying to make sense of the both. Now for those who are new to the Idea of the special relationship, this combo can be a bit unnerving and feel that the purity of history of belief is tarnished, but I can say from personal experience and intuitiveness the topics are twins just realizing they have the common mother. We have an opportunity in this life time to gi [...]

    4. The book seems to be written more for the benefit of readers with a theology background than anyone else. Anyone who has studied science beyond high school cannot avoid the beauty, mystery and majesty of the world around us. For those of us who have some understanding of science and also seek God, our perception of God is primarily shaped by our understanding of creation. As modern science moves forward, it points to a increasingly awesome God.O'Murchu's focus on "Quantum Theory" is annoying, be [...]

    5. An excellent book and great introduction to the new roads that theology may be taking over this next century. We are standing at such a pivotal point, theologically speaking, it will be very interesting to see how the future unfolds as more and more theologians begin to reflect upon the changes in science and culture. This book is a great place to begin the reflection process. It will most definitely go on my "read again" pile. The best part of this book is the exhaustive bibliography at the bac [...]

    6. This is a great book that addresses how science, specifically quantum physics can and should impact one's spirituality. Understanding we are part of an infinite cosmos can certainly broaden one's understanding of who God is and the impact it has on one's response to that understanding. There were a few points I would disagree, but being open to the dialogue is what is important ~ there is always room to learn and grow in understanding.

    7. Everything Father Diarmuid writes is a struggle for me to comprehend but the end result is one where I feel enhanced by a greater understanding of what God has done in His creative work.

    8. Started to read this Feb/12 but found it heavy, so will try again in future as I still want to get through it and experience the ideas and thoughts in this book.
