it was amazing

Three novellas make up this sci fi classic, that is as much about religion as science. In fact, it's probably the most sympathetic to organized religion of any sci fi book I've ever read, addressing questions of the course of science when it's not tied to any moral or ethical structures. That makes it sound boring, and it's actually a pretty lively read.

Walter Miller was in the air force during World War II. He was in the squad that bombed Monte Casino in Italy, the destruction of which was the inspiration for this book. Another interestingly imagined world built on war experiences.
