Blue Sky God: The Evolution of Science and Christianity
Blue Sky God: The Evolution of Science and Christianity
Price: £4.32

4.0 out of 5 stars fascinating, inspiring and challenging., 22 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being only a sixth form scientist and graduate engineer of the 1970s, most of the science of this book was entirely new to me. However, I felt I was given enough information to understand the concepts and so follow the argument. To say I was wholly convinced would be to stretch a point but I found it all very compelling. The translation of the science to the interpretation of spiritual and Christian practices and experience I found profoundly inspiring. It is true to say it has re-invigorated my prayer life and inspired new determination to persevere with contemplative prayer, intercessory prayer and prayer for healing.
I attended a talk last Saturday by Andrew Briggs "How science can strengthen faith" and I believe that this book is a prime example of this principle. Whilst some of the hypotheses explored in this book may eventually prove to be naive they certainly bear consideration and invite deep discussion.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone with an inquisitive mind, a scientific bent, no matter how slight, and a passion to explore, experience and engage with the divine, however they define that ultimate spiritual reality.

Fr Richard put into words truths that seem obvious once he has said them. This is a great encourage and challenge to me to seek and strive for these truths to be a reality in my life.

Like all that Richard Rohr writes this book is first class, stimulating, incisive, enlightening. I would recommend it to anyone who is serious about really living life to the full and wrestling with the deep mysteries of human nature, the world and God.

No problems, works fine. I find it very difficult to sing loud praises for a toilet flush handle. It works, what more can I say.
