THE HIDDEN FACE OF GOD  Mar 26, 2008
This book is one of the most significant books I have read in the last thirty years. It opens the reader's eyes to the mind-blowing miracles that exist in every atom of every part of the universe and especially the intricate interdependence of the organs and brain of every human body! All of it in constant motion at every instant. Gerald Schroeder is not only a graduate of M.I.T. but a microbiologist and a nuclear scientist. In addition he has delved deeply into Jewish mysticism and is a philosopher able to communicate with grace and humor to people not familiar with the topic but seeking proof of a spirituality that is borne out by science. The result is a masterpiece!

Enlightening book and great depth  Mar 23, 2008
Great book. Everyone should read it. The world would be a better place. Thanks for the speedy delivery. I finished it. Could not put it down.
 
Still Hidden  Dec 12, 2007
In a folksy tone Israeli physicist Gerald Schroeder pulls together quantum mechanics, neuroscience, and Bible study to conclude that mind, as exhibited by the ability to make choices, is inherent in every atom of the Universe.

The book shows the place where physics and metaphysics meet and greet (if not merge). In Schroeder's thesis the basic stuff of the Universe is information: "But when we look below the surface, we discover a world made of a mix of identical particles that are actually waves and then realize that the waves are massless expressions of information. Physics has exposed the metaphysical basis of existence." (p. 173)

Schroeder stops short of saying that the Creator and the Created are one thing, but he does seem to support the basic underlying unity of everything in the Universe -- call it God or a force or what-have-you.

One thing that I didn't like was the author's tendency to gush over how wonderfully complex the human body and brain are. To me this is anthropocentric thinking -- he assumes that human beings are smart enough to assess the complexities of reality. I can't help wondering if the perceived complexity is just a reflection of the limitations of our little animal brains.
 
Life-changing book  Jul 31, 2007
This is a life-changing book. If you have an open mind about creation vs. evolution, then read this. I've purchased 5 copies of this for people I thought you find it interesting. Of the ones that had open minds and read it, all said it was the most amazing book they'd read.

The details on conception to childbirth is worth getting the entire book
 
I Love this book  Jun 15, 2007
A must read for anyone wrestling with the question of the inter-relationship of modern science and religion. It shows eloquently what wisdom is found in the Torah and how very relevant it is to modern scientific theory. It is for those that want to immunize themselves from today's religion bashers and more importantly from existential angst. The only flaw in his argument, pointed out to me by a marine biologist, regards the claim that the sudden appearance of one celled organisms in the fossil record argues against evolution, i.e., why didn't the component parts of a cell show up first prior to the whole cell? Answer: The fossil record must start with one celled organisms, it's the smallest unit to be preserved as a fossil. Barring that, the metaphysical nature of the universe is superbly reasoned. Kudos to the author.
