As you take in this beautiful tapestry of wisdom, you will gain insights into science, history, human existence, spirituality, and more specifically the work of Sir John Templeton.

A noted financier and investor, Sir John was also deeply interested in the spiritual life. His foundation and his Templeton Prize have been instrumental in bringing about a revolution in science and religion—two great bodies of human experimentation and human experience that, together, deepen our understanding of life.

Taking your cues from Sir John’s book Wisdom from World Religions: Pathways Toward Heaven on Earth, you’ll probe life’s most profound questions. Does life have an ultimate meaning? Is science the key to the deepest truth of life? Is death the end?

Embark on this adventure of the spirit today.
