The title of this book alone is enough to pique your curiosity. Would You Baptize and Extraterrestrial was written by Brother Guy Consolmagno, SJ and Fr. Paul Mueller SJ to shed some light on the strange places that religion and science meet. Pope Francis asked the question "Imagine if a Martian showed up, all big ears and big nose like a child's drawing, and he asked to be baptized. How would you react?" The Pope was not trying to get an answer but was trying to provoke deeper reflection on the inclusivity and diversity of the Church. The authors of Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial, who are 2 Vatican astronomers, take a look with disarming humor at that question as well as others such as "How do you reconcile the Big Bang with Genesis? Was the Star of Bethlehem just a pious religious story or an actual description of an astronomical event? Will the universe end?" as well as many others. As you read Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial you will find yourself laughing while deeply reflecting on science, religion and the universe as they meet at the junction of faith and reason. The book is a hardcover book with 304 pages filled with fascinating insights about what science and religion have in common.
