Ken Wilber - QUANTUM QUESTIONS
This compilation of writings from the greatest scientific thinkers in history, the likes of Einstein, Heisenberg, and Plank to name a few, gives incredible incite into their theology. Offering a glimpse of their faith rarely assumed in the study of their discoveries. The book marries science and religion in a symbiotic relationship, rather than an antagonistic one.
Dan Brown – ANGELS AND DEMONS
A Fast paced thriller- fiction that is very thought provoking, and is an effortless read. An excellent example of how good fiction pulls the reader through the story without feeling the heft of the pages devoured. LOST SYMBOL, the most recent of the author’s many novels, is easily amongst his best. It is very well researched and stitched together; every page draws you into the next.
Richard Dawkins – THE BLIND WATCHMAKER
An older book, and one of required reading, from my college evolutionary biology days. The book serves as one of the best arguments for Darwinism over Creationism. Dr. Dawkins paints a picture of life from a 10,000-foot vantage point of millions of years of selection, taking painstaking care to offer strong examples and their origins along the way. Whether or not you consider our presence divine intervention or chance, it will certainly give you a new outlook on the choices we make, and the behaviors, which drive us.
Mark Bowden - KILLING PABLO
Most people are familiar with other titles from this author, and some may not consider this in a list of favorites, but Mark has a captivating way of portraying real life events in ways that translate to cinema with ease. The life and business of cocaine smuggling out of Columbia, and its central figure, Pablo Escobar, is interesting enough. But when you add the CIA and special forces into one of the world’s largest manhunts, what you get is story chock full of suspense, adventure, and juicy little known facts. If you have an interest in para-military affairs, you’ll likely find most of this author’s writings enthralling. Another title from Mark Bowden worth reading is BLACK HAWK DOWN.
