Mark Craig is the author of several books on the topic of spirituality. His special interest is in the conversation to be had between science and religion, particularly quantum physics and existential models of spirituality. However, in more recent books, Craig explores the essence of reality from a more philosophical perspective giving religion a broader context from which to distil meaning. Craig is currently a school teacher in Brisbane, Australia but did serve as a Catholic priest for several years prior to this. He has a Bachelor of Theology, a Graduate Certificate in Religious Education and a Master’s Degree in Education, specialising in Religion.
To date, Craig has seven book publications and five published articles in academic Journals, including the Australian Journal of Religious Education (JRE), the Journal of Catholic School Studies (JCSS), now defunct, as well as the EJournal of Theology. His website religiousandspiritualbooks.weebly.com provides further opportunity for spiritual reflection and discussion, hosting a blogpost as well as various other features.
"The Five Jewels" provides a welcome change and touch of authentic originality in its response to the mystery underling existence. The following series of spiritual reflections is nourishment for the inner self on its journey to deeper connection with reality.
