A math graduate student working in Ktheory meets a young philosophy professor who challenges her atheistic beliefs with Blaise Pascal's famous "wager". Mathematics takes a back seat to theology in this Christian novel. However, the reader gets to hear the protagonist's explanation of why she enjoys studying math, and shares her frustration when the result she is working on is "scooped" just before she completes her thesis. Thanks to Hauke Reddmann for bringing this work to my attention.
