Synopsis

In God's Mechanics, Brother Guy tells the stories of thosewho identify with the scientific mindset—so-called"techies"—while practicing religion. A full fledged techiehimself, he relates some classic philosophical reflections, hisinterviews with dozens of fellow techies, and his own personal takeon his Catholic beliefs to provide, like a set of "worked outsample problems," the hard data on the challenges and joys ofembracing a life of faith as a techie. And he also gives a roadmapof the traps that can befall an unwary techie believer.

With lively prose and wry humor, Brother Guy shows how he notonly believes in God but gives religion an honored place alongsidescience in his life. This book offers an engaging look athow—and why—scientists and those with technologicalleanings can hold profound, "unprovable" religious beliefs whileworking in highly empirical fields. Through his own experience andinterviews with other scientists and engineers who profess faith,Brother Guy explores how religious beliefs and practices make senseto those who are deeply rooted in the world of technology.
