Customer Reviews

I enjoyed this book immensely.
Nathan Umphrey
Show Me God vol.1 will demonstrate to the Christian and Deist alike, that blind faith in a creator is neither necessary nor desirable.

My only complaint about this book is that Heeren promised it to be the first of several.

One can always tell if a book on science is written by a Christian, because there will always be militant atheists ready to rate it as terrible, motivated by nothing more than their usual knee-jerk reaction.
_THINKING_ people -- including thinking scientists, agnostics, people of many different faiths, and none at all -- understand that one should read a book for its content, and not for what one believes the author's motives might be. Atheists and those who support what Johnson calls naturalism tend to claim the high ground of reason and logic, dismissing believers as some kind of fundamentalist fanatics who can't read. Ironically, in this case, as with many recent books (e.g., Ross, Dembski, Behe), it seems that it's the believers who are prepared to read about, and accept new data, and fundamentalist atheism doing its best to deny the evidence. It's they who cling to a century-old worldview as a matter of faith.
In this book, Fred Heeren has assembled one of the most carefully thought-out, carefully researched books on the relationship between science and belief in a long time. His presentation is virtually impossible to find fault with. The end result is a devastating demonstration that, even if we wanted to, we could not ignore the fact that something seems to be going on out there in the Universe; something that neither Newton's equations nor Maxwell's can explain. As many other reviewers have pointed out, only a fundamentalist atheist determined to ignore all contrary evidence can muster the energy to dispute the evidence.
One final thought: Negative reviewers claim that Heeren's purpose is to proselytize. I thought I read the same book, and I believe I read it pretty thoroughly. But I see _NO_ evidence that Heeren's goal is to convert anyone.

My girlfriend got me "Show Me God" for Christmas because of my great interest in amateur astronomy. Years ago when I first made steps to turn stargazing into a hobby I had problems trying to understand how the Young Earth doctrine (which I was raised to believe) could explain why I was seeing stars, nebulae, and galaxies so far away. This book will fill in that enormous gap for you, allowing you to not only see why but explain the *how* of cosmology and it's interaction with the Bible.
Mr. Hereen makes the attempt to explain the latest cosmological theories in layman's terms, and for the most part suceeds. He follows it up with a piece by piece buildup throughout the book on why this rock we call home is not the result of an accident, or a mathematical fluke, but rather a "finely tuned" place, custom made for us to be here. If the reader is open minded he or she will be hard pressed to deny the possibility of God by book's end.
While he doesn't offer his own opinion of a chronology of events (more specifically, a scientific explanation on the fly while describing the events of Gen 1 + 2), he does take the time to discount two Young Earth theories, the "light was created on the way" theory and the "the speed of light has changed" one as well. He does maintain a relatively strong adherence to Biblical scripture, although he does veer towards the length of the word "day" in the Genesis account, an issue that puts a ball of ice in my stomach and puts my senses on guard. I still do not really know his view on evolution for instance (promised in the nowhere to be seen Volume 2), although he goes to great pains to explain that the chances of it happening on it's own are so astronomically small that it's literally impossible.

10 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Wesley L. Janssen VINE VOICE on April 14, 2002
Science writer Fred Heeren delivers a thorough, yet concise and very readable, presentation of recent findings in astronomy and cosmology, interviewing Nobel laureates, several of the most prominent people in astrophysics and cosmology (Smoot, Jastrow) and theoretical physics (Guth, Hawking), and perusing the ideas of leading mathematical physicists (Penrose, Davies, Barrow). While it is a fascinating look at the current state of physical science, it is also a deeply thoughtful treatise on the spiritual implications of our emerging knowledge. We find ourselves in an amazing universe, carefully and "finely tuned" and as Smoot says "perfectly orchestrated" with unimaginable precision by a "super intellect" [Einstein's description]. A genuinely skeptical consideration of the attempts to 'explain' our existence within these impossible parameters in any mechanistic (materialistic) way (e.g. the anthropic principles) is found to be irrational, illogical, unscientific, "fundamental goofiness of human nature." "Many skeptics aren't skeptical enough. Most people who call themselves skeptics are really just skeptical about one side of an issue...", states Heeren. "Some of the world's greatest people of faith started out as the world's greatest skeptics ... Logic can lead us to the very threshold of faith, but then it is up to the human spirit to make a choice."
While many might accept that extensive evidence for an intelligently designed universe is best explained, in fact is only explained, by the very real existence of an Intelligent Designer, they often claim skepticism that the Designer is the personal God that Christians claim him to be. But is the idea of a disinterested Creator really logical?
