GOD AND THE BIG BANG
Between Science & Spirituality
Daniel C. Matt
Mysticism and science: What do they have in common? How can one enlighten the other? By drawing on modern cosmology and ancient Kabbalah, Matt shows how science and religion can together enrich our spiritual awareness and help us recover a sense of wonder and find our place in the universe.
"The human mind has devised alternative strategies scientific and spiritual to search for our origin. The two are distinct, but complementary. Science enables us to probe infinitesimal particles of matter and unimaginable depths of outer space, understanding each in light of the other. Spirituality guides us through inner space, challenging us to retrace our path to oneness and to live in the light of what we discover. " from God and the Big Bang.
