"Sure to intrigue thoughtful readers."
--Quest Magazine

"Karl Rahner once said that the Christian of the future will be a mystic, or nothing at all. Bursting with energy, full of deep wisdom, these prayers do more than address God in the light of evolution. They set the heart on the path of mysticism, beautiful and awesome."
--Elizabeth A. Johnson, CSJ, professor of theology, Fordham University; author of She Who Is: The Mystery of God in Feminist Theological Discourse and Women, Earth, and Creator Spirit

"If prayer means (as W. H. Auden said) 'paying attention to something larger than yourself, ' these prayers by William Cleary invite us to pay attention to the largest thing imaginable, the creativity that resides at the core of our Cosmos, teaching us to speak with reverence in this post-Newtonian universe. Faith and science embrace happily in these pages, to the betterment of both."
--Rev. Gary Kowalski, author of Science and the Search for God

"Good theology is rooted in worship and prayer. In Bill Cleary's book, the 'God of evolution' is not an abstract topic of theological reflection but the focus of meditation, prayer, and praise. In a unique and creative way, the author brings the insights of science into contact with the very heart of religious experience. I think Teilhard de Chardin would smile on this bold project."
--John F. Haught, Thomas Healey Professor of Theology, Georgetown University
