Think faith and science don’t go together? Think again! Think again! It’s important to teach children at a young age that faith and science are complementary! Too many people today—adults and children—think that faith and science don’t go together. In fact, many people who leave the Catholic Church report that they don’t believe faith is compatible with science. Sadly, one study found that the median age of people who leave the Church is surprisingly young: thirteen.

Catholics have been behind groundbreaking discoveries in science and math for centuries. Embark on an adventure through history and meet faith-filled pioneers in fields from anatomy to astrophysics.

This second, expanded edition of Brilliant! includes three new biographies: Japanese radiologist and Servant of God Takashi Nagai, Sudanese medical doctor and catechist Adrian Atiman, and Venezuelan physician Blessed José Gregorio Hernández. Walk in the footsteps of these supersmart Catholics who changed the world and learn how brilliant you can be when you unite faith and science.

David Michael Warren (author) grew up searching for great stories in comic books, movies, church sermons, and anywhere else he could find them. When he studied film at the Savannah College of Art and Design, he met Jaclyn, heard the story of Catholicism, and converted to the faith.

Today, Jaclyn loves to spend time with her family and find ways to use art to help others, and David lives out his love of stories by writing and making movies. Together they live in beautiful Mandeville, Louisiana, with their son Jamie.


Jaclyn Warren (illustrator) grew up in Louisiana where she fostered a deep love for art, Cajun culture, and Catholicism. She studied drawing and painting at the Savannah College of Art and Design and earned her Master’s Degree in Art Therapy at Florida State University.
