Birth of a Dancing Star: From Cradle Catholic to Cyborg Christian


Franciscan Sister Ilia Delio, a theologian, author of several ground-breaking books, and a speaker in wide demand, has become one of the most exciting thinkers on the frontiers of dialogue between religion and science. This is her memoir, recounting a journey that took her from scientist to theologian, and from traditional cloistered nun to a leading proponent of evolution and cyborg life. Along the way she earned a doctorate in pharmacology, then entered a traditional Carmelite cloister, moved on to a German Franciscan community, and finally to a post-Vatican II experiment in religious life.

Ilia Delio’s eagerly awaited memoir

“I liken my story to the biblical story of Jonah and the whale; no matter how much I try to run away, God is constantly searching for me.”

From the suburbs of New Jersey to the halls of academe, from the lab to the cloister and back again, Sister Ilia’s story shows what it means to be a 21st century Catholic.
