I like this sentence from her:
"We can construct factual accounts and systems from DNA, Gross National Product, legal code, but they don't begin to tell us how to order our astonishment."I object somewhat to her lumping economics and politics and science together as though they were equivalent. Science is quite apart from those other two. Science demands a level of predictability in experimentation which I would venture to say would disqualify those two conjectural and unpredictable enterprises as "sciences."
Still, just as on her radio show, I like the way she can engage people, both religious and secular, in conversation about this gap/interface between the religious and the mundane without setting them up as rivals.
I particularly liked the comments and questions from the panel following her reading.
