Convergence: Cities, Spirituality And The Future Of Civilization


Convergence: Cities, Spirituality and the Future of Civilization Book Cover

by M.L.Perry

A wide-ranging exploration of how the elements of an ever-advancing civilization might unfold in the life of a city and the planet in the coming decades. Using as guiding principles some of the verses of Bahá’u’lláh, the author looks at how spirituality and the developing science of sustainability might converge to produce communities that are moderate, local but interconnected globally,  technologically- and spiritually-based, progressive and sustainable, and great places to live.
