Ep 39: Ilia Delio, Christ & Evolution


Ilia Delio explains how Jesus is like the Singularity, shows us why Christianity is the religion of evolution, and explores the thought of Teilhard de Chardin—the 1930s priest who foresaw the internet.


Ilia Delio is a member of the Franciscan Sisters of Washington, D.C.,
is the Josephine C. Connelly Endowed Chair in Theology at Villanova University, and the author of 17 books, including The Unbearable Wholeness of Being: God, Evolution, and the Power of Love.
