In The Grand Option, renowned author Beatrice Bruteau advances her healing vision for humankind. This collection of beautifully written essays encourages readers to seek personal transformation based on heightened consciousness and Christian spirituality. Bruteau contends that this transformation will produce a profound sense of personal freedom, thus enabling individuals to commune with the Divine and with each other.
“Every now and then there arises a prophet in our midst marked by a voice that is distinctly new and totally different than the familiar. The Jesuit scientist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin was one such voice and Beatrice Bruteau, a disciple of Teilhard, is another. In this collection of essays written over a period of twenty years, Bruteau offers us a luminous vision of a new social order in an evolutionary world. This is a profound book, written by a scholar of wisdom. It is a book that can appeal to a wide variety of people–academics and nonacademics alike–because of its depth and breadth. [A]ll those who read The Grand Option will not only be lured by Bruteau’s vision and insight but will return time and again to this book, for it is itself an evolution in thought.” —Spiritual Life ~Spiritual Life
