Description
 
In 1929, near Peking, China, a team of scientists that included a Jesuit priest named Pierre Teilhard de Chardin pulled from the rubble a skull of “Homo erectus.” It was the first discovery of remains of “Homo erectus” that became known as Peking Man, a key evolutionary link between the erect hunting apes and our “Homo sapiens” ancestors. The discovery threw Teilhard, both a devoted scientist and a man of God, into a personal conflict between science and his faith. This struggle is at the heart of this book. Teilhard’s inner crisis and, in turn, his public rebuke by the Catholic Church represent one of the central debates of his time and one that continues today: how to reconcile an individual’s commitments to science and to faith.
