“Science, Being, & Becoming: The Spiritual Lives of Scientists” by Paul Mills, PhD, is about spirituality as experienced by scientists. It is an important book for a number of reasons, key among them is its stated purpose: To challenge the assumption that spirituality is both tangential to science and impossible for science to study. Many of scientists throughout history have held spirituality as very important to themselves, the world around them, and their study of that world. Additionally, many studies have been done on both spirituality and prayer in the last thirty years so clearly it is not impossible to study spirituality.
