Description


Franciscan Sister Ilia Delio, a theologian, author of several ground-breaking books, and a speaker in wide demand, has become one of the most exciting thinkers on the frontiers of dialogue between religion and science. This is her memoir, recounting a journey that took her from scientist to theologian, and from traditional cloistered nun to a leading proponent of evolution and cyborg life. Along the way she earned a doctorate in pharmacology, then entered a traditional Carmelite cloister, moved on to a German Franciscan community, and finally to a post-Vatican II experiment in religious life.
