Reviews - What do customers think about At Home in the Cosmos?

Disjointed facts  Apr 25, 2002
This book is one of the hardest books I have ever read. Toolan describes everything in a train of though manner that would have gotten him a D or lower in any college English class.

His facts are semi-indisputable. Our environment is in trouble. It may not be dying, it will probably recover after we are gone, but we are making it an unfavorable place for ourselves to live in.

That is the basic message. Unfortunately, Toolan gives this in a disjointed fashion, introducing experts that he gives little to no background for and having them give quotes. Some of his logic is also fuzzy, stating the beginning and the end of a line of thinking, but doesn't say how he got from the problem to the solution, yet we are forced to take his conclusion as fact to finish the passage.

For students of Christian theology  Apr 29, 2001
David Toolan's At Home In The Cosmos blends science and theology to reveal the meaning of the world and the poetry that fills the universe. As Toolan unites the spiritual with the scientific, he accents the idea that our evolutionary cosmos is filled with promise, is Christ-centered, with incarnational faith providing the appropriate setting for a contemporary scientific cosmology resulting in a fresh basis for an ecological ethic and a new social contract with nature. At Home In The Cosmos is enthusiastically recommended reading for students of Christian theology, the balanced roles of science and religion, and environmental issues within a Christian philosophy and perspective.
