Bernard Haisch (Books)
by Bernard Haisch
Publisher: New Page Books
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.

Physicist Haisch thinks "Let there be light" isn't just a randomly
chosen phrase for the Creation. Indeed, he believes that in the
mysteries of light rest clues to the deepest mysteries of the universe,
something he calls God, though he doesn't mean by that word the
personification that some believers prefer. A scientist who has worked
in astrophysics and theoretical physics, Haisch has retained his wonder
at the universe from childhood, as he describes in the affecting memoir
with which the book begins. Many scientists find no tension between
their profession and the profession of belief in divinity, but Haisch
goes one step further by attempting to find a scientific explanation for
the phenomenon generally called God. Light, that familiar but utterly
mysterious force, is the key to such an understanding. Readable and
engaging, Haisch will be embraced by those concerned with finding ways
of reconciling science and religion. Patricia Monaghan
