About this author

"The desire to write grows with writing." ~ Desiderius Erasmus

Who am I? That will be hard to explain. Perhaps, since my book is about theology, it will be best if I provide a brief autobiographical account of my religious life.

For as long as I can remember, I've always felt very close to God. I was raised Catholic but I went to public school, which made religion a weekend thing for me (a few hours of C.C.D. on Saturdays and Mass on Sundays). I underwent an adult conversion experience to Christianity later in life but I've always had a very religious inclination. Relationally, I've always felt God's presence in my life in a very real way.

I was looking for a good introduction to stargazing and I'm glad I found this book.

“Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

“Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
