Quiet Time Calls For a Book

On the feast day of St. Andrew the Apostle and for four consecutive Sundays thereafter, as daylight fades more quickly and the hush of pending winter is upon us—let us ponder what God has in store for us to learn through books.

Advent is a reminder of life’s ebbs and flows. A time to prepare our minds, hearts and souls for His coming. We at Lectio Publishing want to do a small part by offering a selection of books chosen specifically to appeal to our inner spirituality or our passion to know all there is to know about God—and do it for 20% less, regardless of a title’s time on the market.

Just Released! Maldari’s “The Creed”

For I truly tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain,
‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.

(Matt 17:20)

As copy editors of scholarly books written by immensely talented theologians, it’s not always duck soup to stay focused. However, The Creed: the Faith That Moves Evolution, the book we celebrate today, published on the Feast of the Ascension of Jesus Christ, May 14, 2015, and authored by Le Moyne College professor Donald C. Maldari, S.J., is quite the exception!

Every paragraph is a joyous experience of faith read against a backdrop of the stuff of scientific research.

The Creed: the Faith That Moves EvolutionGeorge V. Coyne, S.J., a trusted friend and mentor of Fr. Maldari, suggests: “No one of us lives without, even unconsciously, seeking for that which gives meaning to our lives, for that which treads together all our lived experiences, for that which makes us deep down who we are.”

This former Director of the Vatican Observatory and current chair in Physics at Le Moyne College goes on to say, “Although this book is clearly written for the Christan believer, for those who voyage into the beyond, it does that in a unique way by searching for a deeper understanding of the transcendent in the immanent and, in particular to probe the transcendent by meditating upon our best scientific knowledge of the universe in which we live.”

He frames the book as “a consideration of how we can best participate in God’s work of creation in our 21st century world.”

The book is the culmination of many years of research, spurred by what the author perceives as an artificial dissociation between faith and reason encountered over 20 years of undergraduate teaching and conversations with students, theologians, and people who inquire about the relevance of faith in a contemporary world.

While the work will be a delight for general readers, it’s written with undergraduate students in mind, making the book unique.
