Seven Days of Spiritual Evolution

The Genesis of Personal Transformation
By E. Kent Rogers

How are we to reconcile a literal reading of the Creation story in the Bible with what science tells us of how the universe and humankind came to be? Based on the ideas of Emanuel Swedenborg, E. Kent Rogers’s Seven Days of Spiritual Evolution points the way to a deeper symbolic meaning hidden within the narrative of Genesis 1. Using his experience as a mental health counselor and spiritual practitioner, he develops practical techniques for spiritual growth on our own personal journey from the darkness to the light.

The Universe and I

Where Science & Spirituality Meet
By George F. Dole

The Universe and I: Where Science & Spirituality Meet joins the science and religion debate with engaging and insightful dialogue from lifelong theological scholar George F. Dole. Exploring the ideas of many of our greatest minds, including Stephen Hawking, Richard Dawkins, and eighteenth-century polymath Emanuel Swedenborg, Dole responds to the scientific community with a theory of consciousness and existence that incorporates spiritual and religious wisdom. He argues that to fully shape our understanding of our relationship with the universe, we need not only the grounding of science but also the insights of spirit. Join Dole on a journey that investigates our origins, our complex present, and how we can continue to advance humanity and goodwill for all—both as a species and as conscious individuals striving for deeper access to self-awareness and personal growth.
