With a peaceful and welcoming tone, this book is perfect for anyone looking for spiritual guidance.
The Evolutionary Testament of Co-Creation is the newest book by Barbara Marx Hubbard, a well-known name to modern spiritualists, and the author of books such as Conscious Evolution, The Hunger of Eve, Emergence, and The Revelation.
In her latest writing, Marx Hubbard deftly explores the New Testament, specifically the four Gospels, and in doing so creates a contemporary interpretation to help today’s society evolve into a better and more loving global community, hence the title “Evolutionary Testament.” This phrase works perfectly as a summation of the author’s message. This message, however, is more than a mere interpretation. Within these pages, Marx Hubbard shares personal details and connections that evoke a sense of challenge. She dares those listening to take the next steps with her.
This book occupies rare space in that it does not just speak to current times, it reaches forward, offering advice to live a fully-realized and self-conscious faith in the future. The author speaks of a twenty-first-century Christ. And in this lies her goal of this text. Simply put, she desires those reading the Bible to evolve with the times, and “co-create” a true global community based on the teachings of Christ.
Marx Hubbard’s interpretation of the New Testament makes sense in today’s world. And she doesn’t stop with her own interpretation—she encourages those inclined to write their own interpretations as well. She preaches for an active participation to create your own faith story. All of this is done with a sense of humility. It’s a genuine example of her nurturing and fostering her faith.
This is a tightly presented package, including forewords and afterwords from other well-known spiritual voices. Furthermore, there is a Spiritual Practice and Study guide that accompanies this book, which sets it up perfectly for those in bible study groups. A reading list is also included, showing where Marx Hubbard derives inspiration from.
This book, written with a peaceful and welcoming tone, is perfect for anyone looking for spiritual guidance or even those just curious about their own faith.
