From the Publisher
The bibliographical work cited in this book is worth the purchase price: she has clearly been exhaustive in her research. A poetophile will likewise find the range of excerpted poetry to be both apropos and well chosen to maximize the cosmic impact upon the reader.
Trinity Seminary Review
I could not avoid taking careful notice of Elizabeth Michael Boyle OP’s book Science as Sacred Metaphor. She has followed scientific quests to stretch people’s yearnings about creation and progress and then to bring them snug and faith-filled home to the universe. She has collected ideas and quotations to consider and be enlivened by. They are wide-ranging, learned, relevant, and helpful.
Review for Religious
This work is a sparkling contribution to contemporary conversations about science and its relationship to faith and theology. Unlike many other works on the topic, it is prayerful and poetic. Fully aware of the differences between science and poetry, the author takes the metaphorical terminology of science as an invitation to constructive theological interpretation of nature. Readers will find this book both wise and enjoyable.
