The New Story

Comments on the Origin, Identifcation, and Transmission of Values

by Thomas Berry

This landmark essay by Thomas Berry was published in 1978 by the American Teilhard Association. The essay begins: 

"It's all a question of story. We are in. trouble just now because we do not have a good story. We are in between stories. The Old Story––the account of how the world came to be and how we fit into it––is not functioning properly, and we have not learned the New Story."
