God's mechanics; how scientists and engineers make sense of religion.


God's mechanics; how scientists and engineers make sense of religion.

Consolmagno, Guy.



245 pages




Astronomer and Jesuit Consolmagno is a planetary scientist whose research orbits meteorites, asteroids, and dwarf planets. Here he explains to members of his techie tribe, and to readers who may or may not be particularly attached to science or religion, how he reconciles two approaches to creation that a lot of people claim are mutually exclusive. He begins with why a techie would join any religion, then progressively narrows the discussion to Christianity and Catholicism. Jossey-Bass is an imprint of Wiley.
