Review

In Show Me God: What The Message From Space Is Telling Us About God, science writer Fred Heeren interviews today's foremost cosmologists in order to explore how the latest findings bear upon the ultimate questions we all ask. In doing so, he introduces people of faith to the ways of astronomy, and enlightens astronomy enthusiasts in the ways of faith. Skeptics and believers are both led to ask: Have cosmologists stumbled upon evidence for God? Scientists see the usefulness of a work like this in "removing the barriers between faith and science". Written in a down-to-earth style with humor and a multi-media approach, this newly revised edition contains 100 new pages that include recent developments in the search for extraterrestrial life and the discovery of primeval galaxies. Show Me God is a fascinating tour-de-force for anyone with an interest in astronomy and religion. --Midwest Book Review

Format: Hardcover
This book makes contemporary cosmology accessible to all of us. From Stephen Hawking (A Brief History of Time) to Robert Jastrow (director of Mt. Wilson Observatory) and from Alan Guth (father of the inflationary Big Bang Theory) to Nobel Prize winners Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson, you will hear the ideas of some of the leading scientists of our time about God and the Cosmos and how they seem to be related to one another, providing what for some of those same scientists are the most compelling evidences for the existence of God. Finding common ground between Science and Theology book author Fred Heeren interviews today's best known cosmologists, to provide proof that sometime in the past, everything came out of nothing or, according to his line of thought, from God Himself. The book also deals with wisdom with one of the most intriguing aspects of modern science, extraterrestrial intelligence, analyzing the "messages from space" and exploring the oldest and most difficult questions about our creation and evolution in the context of a cosmic grand scheme that as Heeren himself believes, shows the Hand of God. A fascinating book!

Format: Hardcover
"Show Me God" wonderfully describes the most complicated theories in modern astrophysics - but it does so in the simplest way imaginable. But this book is about much more than astrophysics made easy, it is a book that shows the average reader that science does not have all the answers. Fred Heeren shows how it is for all practical purposes impossible to explain the creation of the Universe without factoring God into the equation. This book will show any reader with an open mind that many modern theories of the Universe assume many facts not in evidence and that only God can fill in these theories to create the Universe that we live in. The author steps back to carefully consider the recent "Mars rock" and concludes that NASA may have jumped the gun when they declared that this rock was proof of life on the Red Planet. He scientifically discusses the possibility of life elsewhere in the Universe - and the results might surprise you based on what many other scientists are saying. In its simplest form, Fred Heeren shows that science is not disproving the existence of God, but that science must turn to God to explain the origin of the Universe. Those who have lost faith in religion should certainly read this book, it is truly out of this world. -Cody Oliver

Format: Hardcover
This is an extraordinary book, the best book I've ever read concerning science and theology. The book shows that religion and Cosmology can infact live in harmony with one another. It reminds me of one of Einstein's quotes: "Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind". The book gets technical at some points, though it is in a non-mathematical way which is intended for the laymen. I'm surprissed to see that some have called this book bias. The book points out evidence suggesting God's existance but it also looks at the evidence against the existance of God. Although the book does give the impression that the evidence for God is better than the evidence against God. You can come to your own conclusion. Nevertheless the book is, in my opinion, the best, the most clear, and most fair of all the Science v.s. theology books out there. (Well, if it's not the best, it's damn good) A must read! (I agree with the other reviewer: "Where's Vol. 2???)

Format: Hardcover
Fred Heeren in Show Me God has done an excellent job of explaining why science (specifically astronomy) and religion don't have to be constantly at each others' throats. In a world where few people are even moderately educated in both fields, but proceed to attack the other side in these issues, Heeren has done a very commendable job of presenting both sides of the argument, and keeping it open-minded.
The interviews with leading personalities in astronomy, astrophysics, and cosmology are enlightening, but so are the passages on mere logic, and why it coincides with the statements that the author makes. Few people with truly open minds can argue with the assertions made, for example that science has proven that the universe has a beginning, and that in order for the universe to be created, there must be a Creator who is outside of it and immune to the effects of time. Questions and issues such as these are the candy to the mental palate that makes it well worth reading a second time (as I am doing now).
Heeren has really done his research, and this is evident in the sheer amount of information contained in the book, whether one looks at it from a skeptic's standpoint, a Christian's standpoint, or for just the educational value. As both a Christian and a lover of astronomy, I could appreciate both, and it made the book all the more interesting to me from both sides (plus, I have some completely solid arguments to present to my friends when they ask me why I believe in a loving God).
I especially like the conversations between Heeren and his "mental editor," Carl.
