Publishers Weekly says, "Reading this book felt as if one were being drawn along by a powerful current of a deep river." The Futurist says, "The author is aware of what is going on in the real world and offers a vision for the future that is as practical as it is compelling." Both a priest and social psychologist, the author argues that we now live in an age which is transitional-the old ways of relating are redundant.

In order to live on this planet, he claims that concern for ecology, science, and the development of spiritual consciousness must be maintained. Contents: Part One-Wholes & Parts (from mechanistic to wholistic paradigms, from static to dynamic, from closed to open systems, from classical to quantum science, from simplified to integrated spirituality, from independent to interdependent interaction).

Part Two-Chaos & Creativity (from institutional to networking structures, from linear to lateral thinking, from masculine to feminine authority, from production to process marketing, from church to kingdom theology, from physical to psychic evolution). Part Three-Polarisation: In the thick of Battle. Revealing the tapestry of change.
