I know I haven't blogged in a while -- my math writing over at the CK12 project has bumped all my other work off the schedule.
But I wanted to duck in here because there are people who follow this blog but who don't hang out with me on Facebook, and because one of the Jesuits I knew at the University of Chicago has an exciting new book coming out in 2 weeks.
I've only read the excerpt so far, but I'm excited, and you should be too!
The book is going to look at science, faith, and how both have a place in understanding the world. I'll be reading it out loud to my kids as part of their school work, because some of them have been wondering if you can love Jesus AND science. (Answer. Yes. And the pope has a crack team of astrophysicists who can prove it to you!)
The book's not out yet, but I'm counting down the days-- because choosing between theology and science is like choosing between peanut butter and bread. God wants us to have BOTH.
Or, as a friend of mine loves to say, "God loves science! That's why he made so much of it!"
Anyway, check out the excerpt that I linked to above-- you'll be hooked.
