Would You Baptize Aliens?: An Interview with Two Vatican Astronomers

BaptizeET-banner3

Today I sit down with two Catholic scientists, Brother Guy Consolmagno, S.J. and Father Paul Mueller, S.J. Both men work for the Vatican Observatory, which is based at Castel Gandolfo, Italy. And together they wrote a new book, Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial? and Other Questions from the Astronomers’ In-box at the Vatican Observatory (Image Books, 2014).

All Roads

All Roads: Roamin’ Catholic Apologetics (ANC Books, 2014)

Dale Ahlquist describes G.K. Chesterton as ‘The Complete Thinker,’ someone who ties together disparate ideas into a marvelous whole. Chesterton would return the compliment after reading All Roads. In this witty and delightful apologetic, Ahlquist weaves the tapestry of Catholic teaching with joy, verve, and fresh insight, connecting all the individual strands. Where are Chesterton’s successors today? Read this book and you’ll find one of them.
