In this Spanish edition of God at the Ritz, Lorenzo Albacete, a close friend of Pope John Paul II, physicist, and New York Times columnist, shows that religion has a place amid conversations on science…

“Lorenzo Albacete is one of a kind, and so is God at the Ritz. The book, like the monsignor, crackles with humor, warmth, and intellectual excitement. Reading it is like having a stay-up-all-night, jump-out-of-your-chair, have-another-espresso marathon…

Lorenzo Albacete (Author)

Msgr. Lorenzo Albecete, Ph.D. a physicist by training, is a friend of Pope Paul II. He was president of the Pontifical Catholic University in Puerto Rico and professor of theology at Dunwoodie, the Seminary of the Archdiocese of New York. He has been featured in all major Hispanic media in the U.S., including Telemundo, and Naticias. He lives in Yonkers, New York.

  1. "From an absorbing discussion of reason, Albacete proceeds to suffering; sex, money, and politics; and religion. Each discussion is conducted in little chapters that agreeably breakup into digestible portions what amounts to a thorough general—that is, not just Christian—theory of faith in God."
  2. "Albacete's profound sense of the religious leads him not to dogma but to a series of sensitively framed, sincere questions that should catch the attention and empathy of many readers. Highly recommended for most collections."
    --Library Journal
  3. God at the Ritz is a refreshing, insightful, articulate, ‘reader friendly,’ and highly recommended attempt to make sense of the great mysteries of life, and to acknowledge that there are some concepts that can only be understood by God himself.”
    --Midwest Book Review
  4. "Agree with him or not, Albacete is extraordinarily simpatico. Despite his basic conservatism, he has a liberal, and often humorous, openness to every aspect of life: sex, art, literature, pop culture, philosophy and, of course, science. He is also resolutely honest. No one who has heard him, whether on televison or in the pages of this book, grimly analyzing the events of 9/11 as proof of religion's power to do evil will soon forget it."
  5. "The book has a generous dose of edgy humor; whether he is drawing on Bill Cosby, Monty Python, or a New Yorker cartoon, Albacete isn't afraid to tackle sacred cows. This far-flung and bohemian treatise makes for highly original reading."
    --Publishers Weeky
