In this series of short reflections suitable for individual and group use, Jesuit author John Surette uses passages from the Scriptures to explore how humans are part of what he calls "The Divine Dynamic" of the Universe. This book challenges the way we think about God, the planet of which we are a part, and the ways we relate to one another.

He has degrees in chemistry, philosophy, and theology. For sixteen years he worked in the Caribbean islands and territories as chemistry teacher, adult educator, and community organizer.
