Sir John’s Spiritual Vision Captured in New Book

Articles

What is spiritual progress? How might science and spiritual converge? What is the fundamental nature of reality?

Is Ultimate Reality Unlimited Love?, a new book published by the Templeton Press, is the culmination of 15 years of dialogue between Sir John Templeton and Stephen Post, founder of the Institute for Research on Unlimited Love, an initiative funded by the John Templeton Foundation. It also draws on previously unpublished letters and interviews with physicists, theologians, and Sir John’s closest associates.

“Sir John hoped that perhaps a century or more from now, the methods of science and spiritual insight spanning east and west would converge around ultimate reality and unlimited love,” Post explains. “He noted that the visionary scientists and creative spiritual thinkers who might be courageous enough to seriously grapple with this convergence would face much resistance from their scientific peers and from the religiously doctrinaire, respectively. This book aims to present the most fully developed account of Sir John’s mature vision published to date.”
