Review of "Calculating GOD": aliens who believe in God

This is very interesting short story. Extra-terrestrial aliens arrive on Earth to interview paleontologist, a scientist who studies pre-historic life forms. As alien, Hollus, explains to scientist, she came to Earth to confirm that God exists.  

The book is mostly a dialogue between alien and scientist about whether there is a proof that God exists. Alien believes that God exists. Scientist is skeptical. In essence the story is an allegory about dialogue between two humans, believer and nonbeliever.

Book is very good till the end. Though in the end, the resolution of the main question is highly unsatisfactory.
