Birth of a Dancing Star

My Journey from Cradle Catholic to Cyborg Christian

by Ilia Delio

In this heartfelt and spirited memoir,  bestselling author Ilia Delio, one of the most exciting thinkers on the frontier between religion and science, recounts a journey that took her from scientist to theologian, and from traditional cloistered nun to a leading proponent of evolution and “cyborg life.” From the Baltimore Catechism and the suburban malls of New Jersey, through a somewhat wild adolescence, to the halls of scientific research, to a monastic cloister, and to eventual home in a post-Vatican II experiment in religious life, hers is an account of awakening and spiritual adventure.
