As our cosmos expands, what new spiritual truths await our understanding and appreciation? These reflections on the world around us explain the scientific principles at work and explore their meaning for Christians. Garon reviews what he terms the world's stuff as outward expressions of the inner life of God. Line drawings and other illustrations demonstrate the scientific principles at work. Sketches, actual and textual, of theologians such as G. K. Chesterton, Karl Rahner, and Pierre Teilhard De Chardin bring theological depth to scientific understanding. The result is a sense of astonishment at the grandeur of God's grace running through all creation.
Henry A. Garon is a recently retired professor of physics at Loyola University in New Orleans. He is also an ordained married deacon in the Roman Catholic Church.
