Can Christian belief be reconciled with scientific explanations of the universe? Why can't we all agree on the nature and purpose of creation? And if we're the only inhabited planet, isn't the rest of the cosmos a huge waste of space? Bringing erudition and a dash of wit to a vast topic, Olli-Pekka Vainio—a Finnish theologian with ties to NASA—explores questions concerning the place and significance of humans in the cosmos. Looking for connections in the cosmologies of the ancient Christians, Greeks, Egyptians, and Norse, Vainio ponders the history of the idea in dialogue with the writings of C.S. Lewis.
