Summary

Skeptics and True Believers The Exhilarating Connection Between Science and Religion. Chet Raymo. Walker, New York, 1998. 300 pp. $23. ISBN 0-8027-1338-6.

Chet Raymo, a science writer and professor of astronomy and physics, wishes to bridge the gap between the scientific and spiritual communities with a scientifically enlightened new religious consciousness. The reviewer found "no positive claims of a religious sort ... but many scientific experiences of wonder and awe, many breathtaking observations that lead to apprehensions of mystery."
