MacArthur Fellow Plans to Write S&R Book

David Montgomery, one of the 25 winners of the MacArthur Foundation's 2008 "genius awards," says he will use some of the $500,000 he receives to write a book on the relationship between geology and religious thought. Montgomery is a geomorphologist at the University of Washington, studying the Earth's surface and how it changes, and he's already written two books, King of Fish and Dirt. The working title of his new book is Phantom Deluge, and it will be about the interaction of science and theology in accounts of massive floods (like the story of Noah's ark).
