"Incisive. Thoughtful. Lucid. Profound. Goes to the heart of why humanity has searched for meaning in the universe." -Dr. Michio Kaku, professor of theoretical physics, City University of New York; author of Parallel Worlds and Einstein's Cosmos "Stunning.... Succeeds, at the same moment, in expanding the reader's awe of science while deepening and strengthening spiritual connection." -Rabbi Shira Milgrom, rabbi at Congregation Kol Ami in White Plains, New York "I welcome this lively and questioning contribution from the Jewish perspective to the contemporary dialogue between science and religion." -Rev. Dr. John Polkinghorne, scientist theologian; author of Belief in God in an Age of Science "An interesting and useful presentation ... one that presents science and religion not as rivals but as complementary ways of addressing some of life's key questions." -Rabbi Arthur Green, author of Ehyeh: A Kabbalah for Tomorrow
