Summary
Why did God make us? The old catechism answer was "God made me to know Him, to love Him, to serve Him in this world, and to be happy with Him forever in heaven": that is, saving our soul and getting to heaven. But the discoveries of modern science and the theory of evolution have made us reconsider not merely the foundations of theology and spirituality, but perhaps more personally, the purpose of each human life on Earth. God's evolutionary plan or project for creation has been going on for billions of years, and it is our task to discern how we are to help to fulfill this grand divine project. To help us discern our purpose, Louis Savary and Patricia Berne have combined their talents in this how-to book grounded in the thought of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. Using Teilhard's "Evolutionary Law of Attraction-Connection-Complexity-Consciousness" as the underlying structure, they have created a practical step-by-step method, rich with examples, to help us discern our purpose in life, our unique role in "building the Body of Christ"
