Are Faith and Science Compatible?
A Conversation with Teens and Young Adults
Jerome (Jerry) Klosowski
People have been leaving the Catholic Church in droves for the past fifty years. Studies have been done, results have been analyzed, but little has been done to reverse the trend. "Young people find a conflict between the teaching of the Church and what they are learning in science classes," says Jerry Klosowski, who has worked with teens and young adults since 1972.
In this book, Jerry shares their questions and concerns and provides answers and plausible solutions where answers are not available. Jerry urges the Catholic Church hierarchy to use science, as Pope Francis did in his letter on the environment (Laudato Si, The Care of Our Common Home), in order to deepen a person's faith, not destroy it.
Questions and issues raised in this book are about creation and evolution, heaven, hell, and purgatory, birth control, abortion, in vitro fertilization, eugenics, euthanasia, cohabitation, and more. Jerry also shares a discernment process for resolving moral issues.
Jerry was born and raised a Catholic. He has master's degrees in math and chemistry. He is a retired senior scientist emeritus from Dow Corning Corporation in Midland Michigan.
