Honey from Stone book. Raymo's non-fiction books are collections of essays that weave together his love of nature and astronomy (He finds his greatest inspiration looking deep into the night sky) but he is also a student of religion. I have studied science. For thirty years I have explored every recess of what science has learned about the world we inhabit, probed every corner of natural philosophy, gone down every rabbit hole.
Chet Raymo's Honey From Stone is a heart-warming collection of essays. By using the monastic hours as the framework for his essays Raymo gently reminds us of the sacred nature of the universe. By discussing the this universe through the awesome display of its skies he reminds us of the dramatic grandeur we are part of. And he uses the rocky Dingle Peninsula of Ireland to tell us that this awesome splendor, this grandeur and these miracles are right here beneath our feet.
