Does a good job of selecting some essays that bring out the major themes of Teilhard's mysticism. This is useful for someone who wants to get a grip on his ideas since his works can get extremely repetitive while not always staying consistent in vocabulary and explanation of the central ideas. With some short introductory comments in each section, I felt like this was a good way to get the general overview of the main ideas.

This book was dense, but insightful. I appreciated the deeper dive into de Chardin's fiery beliefs and his hope for humanity and the planet.

A very good selection of his writings and any book involving Ursula King's knowledge is worth reading.
