He is the author of numerous books, including Witness to Hope: The Biography of Pope John Paul II, and his weekly column, “The Catholic Difference,” is syndicated to 60 newspapers around the United States. He has been awarded 10 honorary doctorates, the papal cross Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice, and the Gloria Artis Gold Medal by the Republic of Poland. He lives in North Bethesda, Maryland.

Coyne and Omizzolo take readers through the history of human understandings of heavens to arrive at a deep understanding of what many secular physicists are themselves saying about the cosmos: that a loving Creator stands behind it all.
