The book is brilliant - coming from the mind of Einstein, could have expected nothing less. The evolution of religion, to manage fear then to manage morality and finally to manage cosmic wonder is beautifully explained in Chapter 1 as only a genius like Einstein could. But Chapter 2 is entirely missing from the Kindle edition. I looked at other reviews and only one other person has mentioned this. Wonder why ! The rest of you, in case you have got Chapter 2 in your Kindle edition, please let me know. Unfortunate that because of this flaw - attributable to the publisher, I am sure, I have to give 3 stars. The other 2 chapters (1 and 3) clearly deserve 5 stars.

It was intetlligent and thoughtfully crafted, as you might expect from Albert Einstein. He was a great humanist as well as a great scientist, and his thoughts on the connections between religion and science were quite fascinating. Those of us who peer through a telescope for fun probably feel some experiences akin to what he talks about.

That being said, the publisher really should have included a bit more. Even though the price was only 99 cents, 3000 or so words is still pretty thin.

Excellent short and cogent handling of a classic topic by one of the best thinkers that ever lived. I will read more of his writings that are off the subject of theoretical physics. Eventually might get to his "Theory of Relativity".
Honestly and seriously, well thought out on the topic of God, religion, and science by a very intelligent man - who does not throw his beliefs or un-beliefs into the discussion. Try it.

As a writer and publisher I was surprised to find Einstein's essay, "Religion & Science," significantly confusing. At least in this era of his career, Einstein's writing seems overly lofty and wordy, studiously debating each side of the proposed issue without a clear message of his own conclusion. In my view, that gives his essay a feeling of emptiness. In fact, his debate seems to be as much with himself as his intended readers. And it certainly is wide ranging and thought provoking, well worth studying intensely. We know that a great many, if not most, who consider themselves scientists claim to be aetheists or agnostics, feeling, perhaps, that they are able to create the universe and all that's in it with scientific education. We also know that many others are persons of faith, believing that scientific education studies an already existing intelligent, amazingly intricate, design. In a debate of this magnitude, it is always meaningful - in our own quest - to share the thoughts of an Einstein on such a vital part of our humanity. There is a hint of his conclusion when he says that man creates religion in his own mind to buffer life's fears, dangers, and mysteries. Nevertheless, what I wanted to know when I found this essay of Einstein's was...as a scientist, what do you think of God? I couldn't find that answer in Einstein's essay. Maybe you will.

Einstein makes complex ideas almost understandable. I encourage anyone with an interest in cosmology, science and faith to read this material

I couldn't understand how such a great scientific mind could have religious thoughts. "God doesn't play dice with the universe. ", always came to my mind.

But now I think I understand what Einstein had in his own mind. This got me to think of a different perception of what God has to do in a scientific realm.

Not too easy a read, but should be read by anyone who wants to get a different perspective of science and religion.

Recommended.

Succinctly written, with concise and careful analyses of the social and contextual relationship between religion and the pursuit of knowledge gives this brief read considerable depth and clarity for the experienced and thoughtful reader. It is not for those of unprepared intellectual capacity, but rather for those who have considered religion and deism in evolving ways for many years of personal contemplation. Packed with meaningful thoughts and explanations, the relatively brief treatment of the subject is of particular value if considered carefully and without prejudicial biases.

This is a clear and elegant explanation of not only the perceived divide between religion and science but also the importance of bridging that divide. It is well worth the read.
