What People are Saying About This

John P. Foley
It is unlikely that it would be possible to find another treatment of 'The Theological Implications of Virtual Reality.' The subject, however, is of great importance. Virtual Reality is more than just 'a sign of the times.' For many, virtual reality is their principle world; they live in great measure in a world of virtual relationships.
Archbishop, President, Pontifical Council for Social Communications, Palazzo San Carlo, Vatican City
Mary Shivanandan
Mary Timothy Prokes casts a discerning theological eye on such apparently disparate topics as artificial foods, biotechnologies and computer-generated images. Finding the presence or absence of the human body as the link between them, she shows how virtual reality poses grave dangers to the integrity of the human person and the Eucharist. Her book is both timely and provocative.
Professor of Theology, John Paul II Institute for the Study of Marriage and Family and the Catholic University of America
Robert A. Brungs
This volume reveals both a knowledge of mankind's technical genius and a genuine desire not to lose the glories of the looked-for union with our Creator and Redeemer. [Prokes] brings a complete poetic (and prophetic) heart to her writing. This is truly an 'interface' with an understanding of Christian life in the future.
SJ, Director, Institute for Theological Encounter with Science and Technology
