The Science of God: The Convergence of Scientific and Biblical Wisdom

For the readers of The Language of God, another instant classic from “a sophisticated and original scholar” (Kirkus Reviews) that disputes the idea that science is contrary to religion.

In The Science of God, distinguished physicist and Biblical scholar Gerald L. Schroeder demonstrates the surprising parallels between a variety of Biblical teachings and the findings of biochemists, paleontologists, astrophysicists, and quantum physicists. In a brilliant and wide-ranging discussion of key topics that have divided science and religion—free will, the development of the universe, the origin of life, and the origin of man—Schroeder argues that the latest science and a close reading of the Bible are not just compatible but interdependent.

This timely reissue of The Science of God features a brand-new preface by Schroeder and a compelling appendix that addresses the highly publicized experiment in 2008 in which scientists attempted to re-create the chemical composition of the cosmos immediately after the Big Bang. It also details Schroeder’s lucid explanations of complex scientific and religious concepts, such as the theory of relativity, the passage of time, and the definitions of crucial Hebrew words in the Bible. Religious skeptics, Biblical literalists, scientists, students, and physicists alike will be riveted by Schroeder’s remarkable contribution to the raging debate between science and religion.

    Very good book. I like his ideas on our timeline and the creation. A little hard
    to follow a couple of times but I liked it very much. A good read if you have an
    open mind.

    What about Eve?, March 24, 2004

    While I started and finished the book convinced there is a God- so I certainly understand Schroeder zeal for the topic. Unfortunately, I took very little away from his book. To keep the review short I will mention a few pros and cons.
    1- The statistical analysis (While very tedious to read, and often very dull). Provides significant insight in to how “Life randomly occurring” doesn’t quite add up.
    2- the scientific evidence provided by the Big Bang shows that this theory of conception may not contradict the teachings of the Bible.
    3- That seven days can actually be translated over many eons of time using Einstein’s Theory of Relativity.
    4- Evidence found in the entire fossil record doesn’t fare well for those who beleive in Darwin’s theorys on evolution.
    1- What about Eve? While Schroeder goes into great detail on how Adam may have been the first human with a “Soul” (meaning there may have been humans prior to Adam, but they were without a soul so they don’t count) he completely neglects to mention Eve. Didn’t God create Woman so that man wouldn’t go through life alone? What about the concept of birth as being a punishment on women for Eve’s sin? Did the “souless” pre-Adams not give birth? I point this out because it follows a disturbing trend of only pointing out the details that fit within the theory.
    2- When talking in big numbers it can be very annoying when they are described as “a billion billion billions” or a “Billion Millions”. Come on…. people who understand math (and you must understand math in order to learn ANYTHING from the book)hate this type of notation.
    While I found the work to be fact filled I certainly didn’t find it to be overly enlightening. Therefore, I have a hard time believing that non-beleievers would ever be convinced from any of his arguements.
