Einsteins God: Conversations about Science and the Human Spirit by Krista Tippett

A New York Times bestseller
An exhilirating exploration of the meaning of it all. --Robert Wright, author of The Evolution of God

Drawn from Krista Tippetts Peabody Award-winning public radio program, the conversations in this profoundly illuminating book reach for a place too rarely explored in our ongoing exchange of ideas--the nexus of science and spirituality. In fascinating interviews with such luminaries as Freeman Dyson, Janna Levin, Parker Palmer, and John Polkinghorne, Krista Tippett draws out the connections between the two realms, showing how even those most wedded to hard truths find spiritual enlightenment in the life of experiment and, in turn, raise questions that are richly, theologically evocative.

Whether she is speaking with celebrated surgeon and author Sherwin Nuland about the biology of the human spirit or questioning Drawin biographer James Moore about his subjects religious beliefs, Tippett offers a rare look at the way our best minds grapple with the questions for which we all seek answers.

Impulse buy at Tuesday Books in Williamston. Clearly the intersection between modern physics and religion is on my mind lately.

The result is an exhilarating exploration of the meaning of it all. Krista Tippett is documenting its revolution.

It is about reconciling the two world-views. Its intentions are to show that scientists—even ones that have no religious belief— feel the same sense of awe and wonder at the world as believers, that even the devoutly religious can and should respect the study of the natural world, and that scientists themselves can be practicing believers and feel no contradiction within themselves. Tippett is attempting in this book what, for many people on both sides of the religion vs. She is speaking candidly and respectfully to scientists, theologians, and artists about their spirituality and beliefs, seeking to find the common ground between these extremely different world-views. In the process, whether you feel she succeeds or not, she achieves something just as helpful: She finds the common humanity in all these seekers, and gives us a basis for mutual respect and a sense of fellowship. Within this framework, some of the interviews work better than others. Yet the conversation was dry, if not dull.
