I don t think I ve ever read a comic book uite like this one The art is a pleasure to look at but to me the content is what is most striking with a lot of reflections on philosophy and theology I recommend it to anyone but especially to people who would like to hear some of the intelligent arguments in favor of God I wish there were books like this one maybe there are and I don t know I am going to recommend this book to my daughter high school for their philosophy and social science classes

This book landed on my office desk rather unexpectedly As an atheist at first I was not too keen but then I just could not put it down such is the care the authors have taken to illustrate a most controversial albeit fascinating subject This graphic novel is the ideal gift and a must have tome thats should be on everybody s libraries Give it a go and you won t regret itchokengtitiktitikchokengsI am still an atheist who continues to see science and faith as two incompatible agents but this graphic novel has helped me see things from another standpoint

I m not usually a graphic novel fan but I ve found that they can be an engaging means of entering into a story or discovering something new And since faith has always been a part of my life I was intrigued to learn about a graphic novel that takes on the relationship between science and faith called appropriately Science and FaithI ve seen firsthand the antagonism that can arise when science and faith are discussed together especially from people holding very different viewpoints on one subject or the other and I have to include myself in this observation I don t get the impression that this book is out to specifically change anyone s mind about their particular view and probably many people will not agree with every view put forward here but it does have the potential to make us think as well as simply to give us an appreciation of some of the scientists and theologians and some who were both who have helped shape this conversation over the last several hundred yearsOur fellow travelers on this journey are two real life professors Alfio Briguglia and Giuseppe Savagnone who have been friends for than seventy years After they co wrote a book about science and faith in Italy Tommaso Todesca wanted to adapt it into a graphic novel and here it is Alfio and Giuseppe encounter many of the greatest minds in history most long since deceased and their journey takes them all over Florence and London as they converse with these renowned historical figuresKepler Galileo Newton Darwin and others make an appearance here as well as both Richard Dawkins and Saint Thomas Auinas in the last section which covers the concept of God Don t worry this is no Bill and Ted s Excellent Adventure Despite the fantastical premise the uestions and uandaries discussed and mused upon here are sincere earnest and will probably leave the reader with much to ponder regardless of their exact viewpoint going inI appreciate that the individual characters depicted here do not always agree with each other Dawkins especially stands in uite obvious opposition to the religious viewpoints expressed by most others in the book and yet his outsider s perspective is important to prevent this exploration from becoming too inwardly focused While the two characters don t actually meet here each says his piece separately this is probably the next best thing to actually watching a sadly impossible debate between Richard Dawkins and Saint Thomas AuinasEven though I m Protestant I could still appreciate the Catholic perspective here because I do think it helps tie in the history of these great thinkers most of whom were also Catholic to the present day and the uestions pondered here are really for all Christians to consider no matter where we may stand on other issuesAside from the discussion the artwork here is really lovely nothing cheap or cartoony about it the landscapes draw you in and it s easy to feel that you really are just strolling down the road in Florence or London conversing with a long dead ghost I m sure anyone who s interested in history has fantasized about getting to meet their favorite historical figures and the I read here the I saw how well the graphic novel format really does work for this it helps give each character their own presence and personality I found Galileo particularly amusing even in the short time that some of them are featuredOne of the parts that resonated with me personally was the beginning discussion in section 2 which focuses on the terms we use it counters the idea that faith is by definition devoid of reason and uotes Pope John Paul II as saying faith and reason cannot be split They are like the two wings with which the human spirit rises up towards the contemplation of truth The ending was also pretty neat and a bit surreal I really should read Dante sometimeAll in all I found this book both enjoyable and intriguing and I d recommend it to any sciencefaith geek and probably those interested in philosophy in general While the book doesn t go into great depth or detail on any of these historical figures there really isn t room it s a nice introduction to many topics and controversies in the sciencefaith discussion and clearly comes down with the view that yes science and faith can and do coexist uite well
