Pope is very much a twenty-first century person who has come to grips with science and the realities of evolution.
Thomas W. Strieter, M. Div., S.T.M., Ph.D.

Although the creeds have helped Christians cling to dimensions of truth with which great minds wrestled aeons ago, sometimes it’s their very language which constrains our creative thought. David Pope asks us to rethink the imponderables.
David Zersen, D.Min., Ed.D.
President Emeritus, Concordia University at Austin

Pope knows full well what Jesus taught, and he also knows that such a worldwide vision is our first and last great hope.
John P. Cock, author of seven books on
contemporary spirituality

He focuses an evolutionary lens on the troublesome nature of the human “spirit” that has emerged from our extended historical courtship with superstition and magical thinking.
Jaak Panksepp, author of Affective Neuroscience

Pope invites and impels us to think: What IS human nature? Have we interrupted behavioral evolution? What is science? What is faith?
Milton D. Hakel, Professor and Ohio Board of Regents
Eminent Scholar
Ph.D., Industrial/Organizational Psychology

 
About the Author

An abiding interest in classical music has placed David J. Pope at a piano on concertstages in the United States, Europe, Asia, and Latin America. His activities in the arts and in business administration have led him from the often puzzling maze of academia to consultantships in the energy industry. Pope’s omnidimensional enthusiasms have also carried him to the skies, where he has encouraged and trained others who share his curiosity for exceeding the bounds of earth but are content to use an airplane. David J. Pope is Professor Emeritus of Performance Studies at Bowling Green State University in Ohio.
