Found it very intriguing. A lot of your ideas had me nodding my head in agreement. - Karl B.
I was astonished to read your book non-stop over 7 hours last night. It was the best synthesis of the collective understanding I have read in my 48 years. - S. R.
I'm impressed by the breadth of your understanding and the amount of work you've obviously put into it. - R.W.K.
There is nothing flashy about this one, so don't expect a sound and light show. True to his subject, however, Art is direct and straightforward, with an inquiring mind that will thrill and inspire you. Give it your full attention and you will be richly rewarded.
. . . synthesizes notions from the diversity of religions as well as from writings covering a wide span of time, from ancient to modern, and incorporate perspectives from the full specturm of scientific and mystical thought. Very well presented. -
This is one of the most comprehensive books on the way religion and science sees GOD. If you have ever been interested in where you came from but without the claptrap of the church, you MUST read this book that you can download off the internet. -
Wow! This is about all I can say at the moment. - Ella B.
Considering the difficulty of discussing the centuries old conflict between Science and Religion, the cause of the struggle is clearly exposed and discussed in a non-judgmental way. A religious person need not fear reading this publication as you will find the short comings and strengths of both religion and science are covered fairly.
Many religious people as well as the scientific community are uncomfortable with a discussion of mysticism, however, I suspect many readers will find their discomfort is with other practices they mistakenly associated with mysticism. This is covered along with what the mystic experience might contribute to both religion and science.
This is a must read.
The author also gets things wrong about religion. For example, he cites the example of Jehovah's Witnesses refusing blood transfusions as an example of irrational dogmatism among the religious. However, anyone who has bothered to do research on the matter knows that Jehovah's Witnesses do that as a principled moral stand and that as a result, they have avoided all of the problems associated with blood-borne diseases that have so often afflicted blood transfusion recipients. Bloodless surgery is now common practice in the medical community and benefitting all people because Witnesses refused to compromise their morals in the face of criticism by scientific community. This is actually an example of where science got something grossly wrong in its arrogance, and religion with its faulty "way of knowing" (as the author puts it) has corrected science. Fortunately, some medical scientists were sympathetic and research on bloodless medicine began in the 70s. That research came in quite handy in the 1980s when the AIDs crisis hit.
I could list other examples, but I'll stop with these two.
In my honest assessment, the author is well intentioned and has good ability to reason. However, his body of knowledge is very incomplete on the subjects he has chosen to address in this book. I had to grimace several times while reading this book as there were glaring holes in his reasoning.
