Editorial Reviews

Review

David Medved brilliantly brings his decades of theoretical and hands-on
experience in micro-wave transmission to an understanding of Maimonides' brilliant insight that indeed, as Psalm 19 declares, the heavens actually speak of the glory of the Creator. Yet that same psalm tells us that in spite of this celestial praise, no voice is heard. Quite simply nothing is heard, because we humans do not speak star language. But a micro-wave expert as is David can tap into that celestial message. And he has in a very intriguing and revealing way. Hidden Light will open a new vista for each time you view the heavens. --Gerald Schroeder, PhD, Author of Genesis and the Big Bang, The Hidden Face of God, and God according to God

An interesting and stimulating epic. I am very impressed with the scope of the scholarship, the delivery, and the new concepts that are shining through the text. --Professor R. Zidovetski, University of California

This is a fascinating subject and a certain bestseller. --Professor Sol Penner, Unviersity of California

By David C. Bossard on June 2, 2008
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a most remarkable book. It is well worth the attention of anyone who respects both the validity of modern science and the unique and sublime authority of the Bible. There is no posturing. This is not a compilation of narrow prejudices. Every subject discussed is worthy of attention, and is explained in a way that respects the intelligence of the reader.

About half of the book concerns the creation account in Genesis 1-3. Much of this attempts to show that a pleasing and respectful harmony exists between these accounts and the latest findings of modern science. This is a welcome contrast to the assertions of both the Bible thumping dogmatists and the Bible bashing scoffers that one too often encounters in this arena. One doesn't have to agree with the particular syntheses that the author gives, to recognize the great value of what he has done and to admit that his views deserve a respectful hearing.

David Medved rightly dismisses "other creation stories" (page 8) as vastly inferior to the Biblical creation account, which is uniquely worthy of serious attention by serious scientists, theologians and philosophers. And then he proceeds to give his synthesis of the account.

I like, and agree with, his recognition that words such as "heavens", "waters", "light", and "darkness" all are used in the creation narrative with a measure of ineffability added. He gives his own very valid suggestions as to their meaning. I agree with some of these, and disagree with others, but in all cases his views are well worth pondering.

He relates "light" (Genesis 1:3 "Let there be light.

"Hidden Light" is an exciting book, far different from the usual "science and religion" books. "Hidden Light" is not an attempt to convert the nonbeliever. Instead of attempting to argue, reconcile or apologize, Dr. Medved bridges the cultural gap between the language of Torah and the language of science, revealing an elegant, unified universe of endless fascination.

Dr. Medved, a respected scientist and physicist who once served as NASA's principal investigator on the Gemini project, takes his reader on an eye-opening tour of Cosmology, Astronomy, Mathematics, Chemistry, Seismology and Archaeology, demonstrating that the more science reveals, the closer it is aligned with a rational and faithful reading of the Torah (Jewish Bible).

Medved never demands a leap of faith, never asks you to look the other way while he glosses over an inconvenient argument. His reasoning is rigorous; his thinking straight; his conclusions compelling.

It is a tour-de-force, the distillation of decades of scientific and Jewish study, and destined to be a classic text of intellectual thinking. You will never read a scientific article -- or the Bible -- in quite the same way again.

This is a great book, especially if you have a little scientific background. Passages in the bible are wonderfully explained with the latest scientific knowledge. Intelligent design? Is there any doubt?

A little bit too technical but a great book to read. With this book there is no doubt that the bible is really the God's word.
