AUTHOR

SUMMARY

Praise for God's Mechanics"Brother Guy Consolmagno speaks in the softest, sanest voice imaginable as he enters the current firestorm of opinion re science and religion. His engaging commentary exposes the mindset of a true 'techie'-but one who equates science with a sacred act." -Dava Sobel, author, Galileo's Daughter"A prominent Vatican astronomer takes up the problem of presenting the Christian faith to his fellow 'techies.' After analyzing their scientific modes of thinking, Consolmagno proposes ways of speaking to their mentality. His fresh approach opens up new paths for evangelization and dialogue." -Avery Cardinal Dulles, S.J., Laurence J. McGinley Professor of Religion and Society, Fordham University"My grasp of technology doesn't much go beyond the chipmunks on treadmills that generate the electrical power for my computer. Put those chipmunks inside my brain, and you've got an idea how much I understand about religion. Which is why I found [this] book so amazing. Brother Guy has a knack for taking extremely complex concepts and explaining them in ways even a technological and religious rustic like me can understand. He's smart, patient, thorough, and very funny. I only wish Brother Guy had been my science professor and my Sunday school teacher. I'd have a lot fewer chipmunks running around in my office and in my head." -Gary K. Wolf, creator of Roger Rabbit"Brother Guy Consolmagno's book explores the origins and nature of religion in novel and interesting ways, especially for a Catholic writer. His insights and thought processes honestly accept and answer many religious questions relating to scientists, engineers, and contemporary society as a whole. He is deeply candid, sharing his own faith and revealing his true love for the Catholic Church." -Archbishop John J. Myers, Newark, New Jersey"Brother Guy is someone whose faith is mysterious to me. I'm an atheist, I think that God is a mental state we achieve by tickling our brains, not a creator who intervenes in the universe. Brother Guy's book is an important step in bridging the gap between we the irreligious and anti-religious tech-world and the faithful among the geeks." -Cory Doctorow, author, Overclocked: Stories of the Future Present and coeditor of Boing Boing (boingboing.net)Consolmagno, Guy is the author of 'God's Mechanics: How Scientists and Engineers Make Sense of Religion', published 2007 under ISBN 9780787994662 and ISBN 0787994669.
