Physicist Haisch thinks "Let there be light" isn't just a randomly chosen phrase for the Creation. Indeed, he believes that in the mysteries of light rest clues to the deepest mysteries of the universe, something he calls God, though he doesn't mean by that word the personification that some believers prefer. A scientist who has worked in astrophysics and theoretical physics, Haisch has retained his wonder at the universe from childhood, as he describes in the affecting memoir with which the book begins. Many scientists find no tension between their profession and the profession of belief in divinity, but Haisch goes one step further by attempting to find a scientific explanation for the phenomenon generally called God. Light, that familiar but utterly mysterious force, is the key to such an understanding. Readable and engaging, Haisch will be embraced by those concerned with finding ways of reconciling science and religion. Patricia Monaghan

If you are interested in the zero point field from someone with the scientific and metaphysical credentials, go no further. . . . If you want to put your metaphysical conception of the universe on a more solid scientific basis and/or have great discussions . . . get a little God Theory in your life. --William Arntz, Executive Producer of What the Bleep Do We Know?
Whether our world will fall apart from the excesses of religious zeal or the blind stupidities of scientific materialism is a serious question. In this tour de force, a peerless scientist presents us with a way out. --Larry Dossey, MD
The God Theory makes important inroads toward the creation of a higher-order synthesis grounded in todays most cutting-edge science. --What Is Enlightment?

Gives me hope that a new era in human capabilities in understanding who we are. I have always been interested in investigating and expanding my understanding of that which I am, that of which I am a part, and my relationship to it. For me it is an organizing principle that allows me enough perspective to organize reality. This book speaks to both my intellect and my soul.
Good starting read however if you want to begin digging into Zero Point Energy, Quantum physics, the nature of conscientiousness and the convergence of science and spirituality. Suggested follow on readings are the Tao of Physics and the Holographic Universe.
Making a clear distinction between spirituality and religiosity, Haisch methodically builds a strong case for science being able to offer religion the ability to accept multiple representations of a single universal truth. It is refreshing to see a scientist of this stature taking to task those whose scientific inquiry is severely limited by arbitarily imposed boundaries and the refutation of any view of consciousness as anything outside of a mere epiphenomenon of the human brain.
The God Theory is written in a clear, accessible, carefully reasoned style. It is not sparing in its criticism of the absurdity of some of the claims and beliefs of those at the polar extremes of the creationist and reductionist divide. I strongly recommend this excellent book to those in both camps, as well as to thoee in between.
