Read full description of the books The Singing Silence: What the Design of the Universe Tells Us about God:While I hang out with math geeks all the time, I'm not actually one of those people who really "gets it." Nevertheless I had very little difficulty following Anne Hamilton's explanations of how mathematics rears its head constantly in nature, indicating both intelligent and loving design.
The Singing Silence also explains how those in the ancient world (and into the Middle Ages) perceived God's math messages... and how they emulated them.
My favourite section of the book was when Hamilton explained how the golden ratio (or divine proportion) was used by the "wisemen" from the East to locate a new born king at the time of a conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn and/or a Halley's Comet year. This was absolutely fascinating stuff... which swelled to mind blowing when she added (in the endnotes) her plausible theory about the possible influence of the prophet Daniel in this cross-country trek.
Well-researched, clearly written and highly insightful. This is a short work with notes for those who want to dig deeper: notes that are worth the extra time.

For twenty years, I was the coordinator of an annual camp for children based around The Chronicles of Narnia. That experience shaped a lot of my thinking about how readers enjoy fantasy.
Like CS Lewis, my fantasy story Many-Coloured Realm began with a picture in my mind's eye: a boy without arms floating in a field of stars and faced with an impossible choice.
My non-fiction series beginning with God's Poetry can be traced back to the observation that Lewis comes from the Welsh word for lion. The discovery of name covenants led to the discovery of threshold covenants, as well as many other long-forgotten aspects of our Judeo-Christian heritage.
I love exploring words, mathematics and names. All of these combine in my books, whether they are fiction or non-fiction, or whether they're for adults or children, whether they're academic in tone or primarily devotional. I hope my readers always come away from my books with a renewed delight for the world around us and a child-like wonder for its awesome aspects.
