Summary

"Committed atheists, traditional Christians, or hard-core Muslims will no doubt try to dismiss this book. It is wide ranging, provocative, sometimes entertainingly whimsical, but always mind-stretching and logically solid. The Purpose-Guided Universe is one of those rare books that gives serious food for thought." Prof. Owen Gingerich, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, author of God's Universe "At a time when religion- and spirituality-bashing has become a blood sport within science, it is thrilling to read The Purpose-Guided Universe. Neither science nor theology can consider itself informed without taking into account Haisch's views." Larry Dossey, MD, author of Healing Words "If you think that science has nothing to do with God, and vice versa, read this book--and you just may change your mind." Prof. Peter Sturrock, Dept. Physics, Stanford Univ. "Bernard Haisch is the latest entry on this promising scene: an eminent scientist turned profound philosopher. It merits being read and pondered by everyone seeks deeper meaning underlying science's ever more astounding view of the world." Dr. Ervin Laszlo, author of Science and the Akashic Field "The Purpose-Guided Universe is an enlightening exploration of creation and the human being's existence on Earth. The intricate, precise conditions necessary to sustain life have baffled even the most cynical scientists who do not accept a higher power. Dr. Haisch discusses the reasons for incorporating a nonthreatening and nondenominational God into scientific study. Using a practical, common-sense approach, he explains why belief in a universal force does not exclude or negate the theories of Einstein and Darwin." Julia Ann Charpentier, ForeWord Reviews In this engrossing new book, Dr. Bernard Haisch contends that there is a purpose and an underlying intelligence behind the Universe, one that is consistent with modern science, especially the Big Bang and evolution. It is based on recent discoveries that there are numerous coincidences and fine-tunings of the laws of nature that seem extraordinarily unlikely. A more rational concept of God is called for. As astrophysicist Sir James Jeans wrote, "the Universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine." Despite bestsellers by Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, and Sam Harris that have denounced the evils of religion and proclaimed that science has shown that there is no God, The Purpose-Guided Universe shows how one can believe in God and science.
