God and the New Physics

  • By J G Davies
How did the universe begin and how will it end?< P> What is matter?< P> What is mind, and can it survive death?< P> What are time and space, and how do they relate to ideas about God?< P> Is the order of the universe the result of accident or design?< P> The most profound and age-old questions of existence -- for centuries the focus of religion and philosophy -- may soon be answered through the extraordinary advances of a field of science known as the new physics. In this illuminating work, Paul Davies, author of the acclaimed < I> Other Worlds< /I> and < I> The Edge of Infinity, < /I> writes that the discoveries of 20th-century physics -- relativity and the quantum theory -- are now pointing the way to a new appreciation of man and his place in the universe. They could, in fact, bring within our grasp a unified description of all creation. Demanding a radical reformulation of the most fundamental aspects of reality and a way of thinking that is in closer accord with mysticism than materialism, the new physics, says Davies, offers a surer path to God than religion.< P> Described by < I> The Washington Post< /I> as "impressive," < I> God and the New Physics< /I> is a fascinating look at the impact of science on what were formerly religious issues. Elegantly written, a book for both scholars and lay readers of science, it is, according to the < I> Christian Science Monitor, < /I> a "provocative...rewarding intellectual romp."< P>
