Skeptics and true believers : the exhilarating connection between science and religion by Chet Raymo( Book )
21 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 1,359 libraries worldwide
Years ago, noted science teacher and writer Chet Raymo embarked upon his own quest to reconcile the miracle stories he learned as a child with the science he learned as an adult. Skeptics and True Believers is the culmination of that search. Acknowledging that the scientific and the spiritual communities are increasingly split, Raymo builds strong bridges between them. He illustrates his argument with an array of thought-provoking stories, such as the remarkable migratory flight of a small bird called the red knot; the long, glorious glide of the Comet Hyakutake across the night sky; a hilarious alien abduction that didn't happen. Together, they are compelling evidence that religion should embrace the reliable knowledge of the world that science provides, while at the same time science should respect and nourish humankind's need for spiritual sustenance

The dork of Cork by Chet Raymo( Book )

Now, years later, Frank is about to become a literary celebrity, as the author of a personal memoir that is also a meditation on beauty and brokenness, love and unaccountable hurt. His move from the dark isolation of his deformity into the glare of public acclaim is colored by his poignant past as a lonely boy who marks the days of his growing up with lunar eclipses, meteor showers, and the visitations of comets. As his story unfolds, we discover the secrets of Bernadette's tragic childhood in Nazi-occupied France; her erotic and self-destructive relationships with the three men who were smitten by her beauty, and who in turn shaped her son's life; young Frank's enduring passion for a woman he believes to be as unreachable as the stars; and the green, misty essence of Ireland itself, where miracles just might be possible

Frank Bois is 43 years old and 43 inches tall, but his yearnings are as wide and deep as the night sky he contemplates from his rooftop in Cork, Ireland. The Dork of Cork is his story, a fictional autobiography that captures the emotions of the listener from its provocative opening line to its surprising, but touching, ending.

Little is known about Valentine, whose name symbolizes romantic love.

The ideas in Valentine are startlingly relevant to our own times: globalization vs. fundamentalism, reason vs. superstition, and the power of love
