9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Shalom Freedman HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on March 2, 2005
Format: Hardcover
Aviezer is ingenious and does a truly credible job in connecting the Biblical story of creation with science's most recent findings about the physical world. For those whose tendency in thought is to look for confirmation of their religious belief in this way this is truly an excellent work.

I would however say that I am one of those who tend to see this kind of effort as more metaphorical and marginal than central to religious faith. For me Tannach( the Bible) is not a scientific guide to the universe, a more primitive primary source to what Mankind would later confirm through scientific research but rather the prime religious revelation, the document that teaches us how to live morally, and do G-d's servince in the world. Of course in the Jewish tradition this means also making the interpretation of Tannach through the Oral Torah. But that is another matter.

The point again is this is a rich work by a scientist who really knows his stuff and a religious Jew who is learned and wise. If this approach is the one the reader finds useful for them I highly recommend this work.

The author looks at the Biblical description of the creation of the world, and then looks at the actual science and shows how amazingly the writers of the Bible got it right. He looks at some the probabilities of actually guessing write while writing the books of the Bible out in the desert over a camp fire, and demonstrates that it was mathematically impossible to get it right without divine guidance.

I have been using this along with my grandson's 6th grade science text. It is a little over his head, but just a little. We read a section of the book and then discuss it. I am very grateful to the blog that led me to this book.
