Summary
What is the origin of life? Hasn't the Catholic Church always been hostile to science? Can a Christian accept the scientific theory of evolution?How can you, as a Catholic, explain what the Church teaches about the relationship between science and faith? Scientist, writer, and scholar Stacy Trasancos gives us ways we can talk about how science and our Catholic faith work together to reveal the truth of Christ through the beauty of his creation. As a scientist who was led to Catholicism through her work, Stacy Trasancos has confronted some of the basic questions we all face. In "Particles of Faith," she teaches us how to explain the symbiotic beauty between our curiosity expressed through science and our love of Christ and his Church.Trasancos uses her own story, as well as encyclicals such as Pope Francis's "Lumen Fidei," the deep reflections of theologians such as St. Thomas Aquinas, and the exacting work of Catholic scientists like Rev. Georges Lemaitre (who proposed the game-changing Big Bang theory), to show how science and faith are interwoven and meant to guide us on the path to truth. By the time you finish reading "Particles of Faith," you'll be able to answer questions about, generate discussion on, and explain why science helps deepen your faith. -- Provided by publisher
