American Teilhard Association (2013) (Additional Resources)


This is a follow up to my first post on Dr. Mary Evelyn Tucker’s speech at the American Teilhard Association meeting.  Today, I am going to very briefly mention of few of the wonderful people I met at the meeting, with links to fantastic resources that they can provide.


Dr. Kathleen Duffy is the Founder and Director of the Institute for Religion and Science at Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia.  Dr. Duffy is a physicist, member of Sisters of St. Joseph and published author of “Rediscovering Teilhard’s Fire“.




John Grim is the Co-Founder and Co-Director with Mary Evelyn Tucker (they are married) of the Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology.  Dr. Grim is a distinguished author and speaker.  Dr. Grim is also the President of the American Teilhard Association.


jennifer_morganJennifer Miller is an award-winning author, storyteller, educator and environmental advocate.  Ms. Miller has written three books for children on The Universe Story (Born With a Big Bang, From Lava to Life and Mammals Who Morph) and is a frequent speaker.  I have ordered Ms. Miller’s three books for my two children and I look forward to reading these books with my boys.



william_grassieWilliam Grassie  is a religious studies scholar known for his writings and advocacy of the concept of Big History.  Dr. Grassie is the founder of the Metanexus Institute, a virtual think-tank devoted to Big History, Big Problems, Big Questions.  Dr. Grassie is also a frequent contributor to the Huffington Post on Science and Religion.  The Metanexus Institute is an amazing resource and I highly recommend that you check it frequently.

About William Ockham

I am a father of two with eclectic interests in theology, philosophy and sports. I chose the pseudonym William Ockham in honor of his contributions to philosophy, specifically Occam's Razor, and its contributions to modern scientific theory. My blog ( explores Ignatian Spirituality and the intersection of faith, science and reason through the life and writings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (pictured above).
