Way to the Dwelling of Light

Guy J. Consolmagno, S.J.

And the Lord spoke to Job out of the whirlwind: Do you know the way to the dwelling of light?

Was God merely reprimanding Job for his presumption? Or was He also issuing an invitation to explore? In The Way to the Dwelling of Light, Guy J. Consolmagno, S. J., shows us how our religious experience can illuminate our understanding of physics of light and how, in that light, we can see what modern physics shows us in God’s creation.

Publication Year: 1998

Guy J. Consolmagno, S.J., is a Jesuit brother and astronomer at Specola Vaticana and at the Vatican Observatory Research Group at the University of Arizona.

“A spirited romp through the mysteries and paradoxes of light: friendly, honest physics and a delight to read!” —Dr. Cliff Stoll, astronomer and bestselling author of The Cuckoo’s Egg and Silicon Snake Oil.

“Consolmagno writes in an informal, conversational style, integrating snippets of humorous stories to convey the compatibility of scientific and religious thinking on the nature of the universe.” — Science & Theology News, November 2004
