My Journey from Cradle Catholic to Cyborg Christian

Author: 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.

Along the way we follow her discovery of the mystic-scientist Teilhard de Chardin, and her entry into the Franciscan view of the cosmos as “locus of God’s self-revelation and self-becoming.”
