God’s Mechanics; A Reconciliation of Religion and Science

 Images Godsmechanicscover
This looks to be an interesting read.

From BoingBoing:

“God’s Mechanics: How Scientists and Engineers Make Sense of Religion” is the new book from Brother Guy Consolmagno, who is, in no particular order, a scientist, a Jesuit, a science fiction geek, an MIT alum and a Vatican Astronomer. Obviously, religion is a central part of Brother Guy’s life, but so is technology, rationalism and science.

God’s Mechanics is a relgionist’s explanation of his faith, in terms aimed at showing techies how one of their own can simultaneously believe in supernatural phenomena and practice rigorous, materialistic science.
