Chet Raymo

Chet Raymo is a writer, teacher, and naturalist, whose twelve books include Natural Prayers; Skeptics and True Believers; and The Soul of the Night: An Astronomical Pilgrimage.

Of Mr. Raymo’s writing, Stephen Jay Gould said, “These confessions of a wise religious humanist who also loves, practices, understands, and lives by the ideals and findings of science show us how to heal the false and unnecessary rifts in our intellectual cultures, and to bridge the gap between knowledge and morality.”

Mr. Raymo, who received a Lannan Literary Award for Nonfiction in 1998, teaches physics and astronomy at Stonehill College in Massachusetts and writes a science column for the Boston Globe.
