Br. Guy J. Consolmagno, SJ

How does religion work in a society shaped by science and technology?

How do scientists and engineers practice their religions?

How in particular does a Jesuit brother, and an MIT graduate with a PhD in planetary science, make sense of his Catholicism?

God‘s Mechanics examines the personal religious life and theology of scientists and engineers based on conversations in California’s Silicon Valley and a first-person confession from a Jesuit scientist and astronomer at the Vatican Observatory.
