In what he describes as a “late-life credo,” science writer Chet Raymo traces his personal journey from traditional faith-based Catholicism to scientific agnosticism in his new book, When God is Gone, Everything is Holy: The Making of a Religious Naturalist. Raymo will give an author talk on Tuesday, May 26 at 7:30 pm. The talk will be followed by a book signing. Raymo has assembled a stunning array of scientists, philosophers, mystics and poets such as Richard Dawkins, Owen Gingerich and Gerard Manley Hopkins who help him articulate his unique perspective as a religious naturalist. Delving into the fray between science and religion, and carving out his space between militant atheism and the faith-based scientific approach, Raymo traces his half-century journey from his early faith-based Catholicism to his personal brand of scientific agnosticism which holds reverence for the unknown. Chet Raymo is the best-selling author of sixteen books. His long-time Boston Globe column, Science Musings continues to be published on line at www.sciencemusings.com. Mr. Raymo is guest for the May edition of Books and Beyond, the library’s cable access TV show produced in conjunction with NewTV. For Newton residents the show can be viewed on NewTV's Red channel on Comcast channel 9, RCN channel 13 and Verizon channel 33 daily at 5:00 pm. (NewtonFreeLibrary)
