The Square Root of God: Mathematical Metaphors and Spiritual Tangents Paperback – April 18, 2013
''When your book arrived I thought I would just look at the first few pages--hah! I was hooked! I had to travel by train over the weekend so your book was my companion, and I happily read the whole thing. It's a wonderful little book. Thanks for thinking this book, writing this book, and sharing this book!''
--Marjorie Suchocki, Professor emerata, Claremont School of Theology, Claremont, CA
''Connecting the head and heart of faith, Tim Carson delivers a book both challenging and refreshing. His provocative mathematical symbols are born of a life on the front lines of ministry, making this book perfect for students newly grappling with the tension between faith and reason, ministers seeking new ways to connect others to the mystery of God, and any Christians curious enough to grow in their faith.''
--Joe Blosser, Assistant Professor of Religion and Philosophy, High Point University, High Point, NC --Wipf and Stock Publishers --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

There are many weighty thoughts and ideas put forward in this book, and they are extended and illustrated with compelling examples of the human spirit intersecting with the Divine. The author’s voice is friendly and conversational. For the math/science lay person, some of the ideas presented require re-reading. For the person of faith, the territory is familiar but the path is fresh —the mystery and the mysterious — and, as the author states, “The more we know, the larger the mystery becomes.”
This is a book for re-reading, for pondering, for using as a touchstone in one’s spiritual growth. The thought-provoking ideas presented and the heart-warming human perspective woven into the text invite the reader to reflect on contemporary Christianity. Intersections, patterns and metaphors? Elegant design, indeed.
