A scientist looks at the mystery of lent Jan 27, 2004
I'm again looking forward to reading a section of this book each day during Lent. This season gives a superb opportunity to formally look at subjects we'd normally like to avoid, but which are best not avoided too much. The author shows how the scientific method can look at Lenten traditions with a new perspective, and how the religious method can give science an added dimension of humility, mystery, and wonder. The book has been divided into seven sections: an introduction, Creation, Reality, Searching, Prayer, Suffering, and Holy Week. In my opinion, the author gives a wonderful outline. After spending forty days with this book, you may have experienced a delightful blend of reason and wonder, and may understand how a scientist can find value in the dimension of the spirit.
