Would You Baptize an Extrateresstrial? A Review

wouldyoubaptize Wow, bet they never get bored reading the emails and letters from curious people. I’m sure they have many interesting conversations about what they are asked. The title made me laugh and I had to read this book. Bet they get whiplash shaking their heads. Hey, who said work had to be boring anyway? The authors delved into some of the questions they get asked both in person and via email. You even learn stuff as you read. Wish they had been my science teachers; they put everything in easy to understand terms.
The title of the book came from a question that a journalist once asked Guy Consolmagno, SJ. His answer? “Only if she asks!” Talk about throwing something back in one’s face. Good answer!! Well, why not? Are we supposed to limit baptism to humans only? And to be honest, if an ET did express an interest, I’d say, heck yeah.
Other questions they are asked a lot are about the Star of Bethlehem, which they don’t really come up with a definite answer, they do make educated guesses as to what could have occurred that night. Other questions concern Galileo, the end of the world among others. The end of world chapter is where they are having their last meal. Hmmm.. Last Supper?
I’d like to see a sequel to this please, gentleman. Ok, on the count of three, start typing.
I received a free copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.
