Quantum Theology

Spiritual Implications of the New Physics

Drawing parallels between the behavior of subatomic particles and the essence of spirituality, Diarmuid O’Murchu knits together the substance and source of creation, showing that new findings in science only lead us to deeper truths about the nature of the divine.

This "path-breaking work" (Values and Visions) explores black holes, holograms, relativity theory, the discovery of quarks, and quantum theory—some of the most brilliant advances of our time—and their significance to theology.

Reviews and endorsements

"Those who rail against the spoon-feeding approach to theologizing may be pleased to discover Quantum Theology . . . A book like this, an unpretentious paperback, might remind searchers of the immense, unexplored areas waiting for theologians when theology is again treasured."
National Catholic Reporter

,

"A path-breaking work which takes us into uncharted territory where science, religion, psychology,and spirituality all whirl together in a phantasmagorical dance."
Values & Vision

,

"O’Murchu has an imaginative and energetic style . . . A significant strength of Quantum Theology is a sustaining of the notion of holistic consciousness among quantum scientists and the important realization that, as previous mechanistic models of the universe are laid aside, the whole dynamic of reality is far greater than the sum of its parts."
The Australasian Catholic Record

,

"O’Murchu succeeds in showing us that cosmology, the study of creation, is a pre-scriptural revelation that is trustworthy—but look out, church! Our religious systems are old skins for this dynamic new wine. Recommended reading."
The Living Church

,

"This book is an important one for anyone interested in the shaping of religious consciousness and spirituality in the context of contemporary scientific cosmology."
