About the Author

About the Author: Rev. Gerard A. Pisani, Jr. grew up in an Evangelical Christian family in northern New Jersey. After a twelve-year traditional education in the Butler Public Schools, he followed up with college. His first year was at Wheaton College in Wheaton, IL and continued in the following summer at the Wheaton College Science Station in Big Bend, SD, where his interest in science grew enormously. His second and third years of college were at Taylor University in Upland, IN. The Gospel Quartet, for which he was the accompanist, was invited to travel several years with the Word Of Life Fellowship which had nationwide radio and television broadcasts and youth rallies in the USA and other countries. During his travels, Jerry, as he became known, finished his academic studies, between home and travel, at Nyack Missionary College, Nyack, NY, graduating in 1964 with a B.S. in Theology.

During graduate studies Jerry was ordained as a Conservative Baptist Minister and founded a Mission Church in Milton/Oak Ridge, NJ. He eventually became interested in the Episcopal Church and became a postulant to the ordained ministry and continued studies at the General Theological Seminary in NYC. The mission in Oak Ridge, the Milton Bible Church, became St. Gabriel's Episcopal Church and Jerry became their first Vicar. He then served as the Rector of Christ Church in Pompton Lakes in the Episcopal Diocese of Newark, NJ, followed by 34 years as Rector of Trinity Episcopal Church in Bayonne, NJ. Besides his normal responsibilities as Rector, he helped begin a program called Windmill Alliance, a sub-corporation under Trinity Parish, to serve others as did Jesus in Galilee. It continues to this day as a successful ministry to those with special needs, in work activity and housing, along with serving many disenfranchised persons with work, housing, food, clothing and training in a program called HIGHWAYS.

Jerry has always enjoyed reading and studying, especially in the field of the science of Quantum Physics. As he became familiar with modern theological scholarship, he began to bring Science and Religion together by incorporating outward and visible signs of science with the inward and invisible graces of his faith as a follower of the historic Jesus.
