In this illuminating work, Paul Davies, author of the acclaimed Other Worlds and The Edge of Infinity, writes that the discoveries of 20th-century physics - relativity and the quantum theory - are now pointing the way to a new appreciation of man and his place in the universe. They could, in fact, bring within our grasp a unified description of all creation.

God and the New Physics is a 1984 scientific book written by English scientist Paul Davies. The book deals fundamentally with cosmology although throughout the text several sciences are mentioned, such as: physics, mathematics, neurology, and philosophy. It deals with a wide variety of philosophical problems, such as the nature of God, miracles, free will, time, and consciousness.

The most profound and age-old questions of existence -- for centuries the focus of religion and philosophy -- may soon be answered through the extraordinary advances of a field of science known as the new physics. In this illuminating work, Paul Davies, author of the acclaimed Other Worlds and The Edge of Infinity, writes that the discoveries of 20th-century physics -- relativity and the quantum theory -- are now pointing the way to a new appreciation of man and his place in the universe. They could, in fact, bring within our grasp a unified description of all creation. Demanding a radical reformulation of the most fundamental aspects of reality and a way of thinking that is in closer accord with mysticism than materialism, the new physics, says Davies, offers a surer path to God than religion.

Described by The Washington Post as "impressive," God and the New Physics is a fascinating look at the impact of science on what were formerly religious issues. Elegantly written, a book for both scholars and lay readers of science, it is, according to the Christian Science Monitor, a "provocative...rewarding intellectual romp."

Deep material is presented in an understandable way so that even this mathematically illiterate reader could grasp the fascinating concepts. It is a great introduction to the deep mysteries of human existence as well as the the mysteries of the cosmos. Very readable. I'm now reading Davies' book "The Mind of God," which further draws the reader into the depths of the physical and metaphysical universe.

The author is a fine physicist who is also a good writer. He presents both scientific and theological views of such subjects as time, the existence of God, and the origin of the universe, in quite unbiased fashion. As far as this book is concerned, there are two kinds of potential readers: those who consider such subjects important and interesting, and those who don't. The ones is the former category will find this book highly rewarding because it will clearly present new thoughts and ideas. The ones in the latter category will have no interest in the book.

I have read a great many popular books on physics and most of them cover
largely the same ground. This book deals with issues so fundamental and profound that many times only kids ever dare ask them. If you do read this
book you may never forget the experience.

I enjoyed this book despite the sometimes heavy and dry writing style. If you have enough interest in the subject, you probably will get through it :)

Excellent! An objective and pertinent assessment of the pitfalls of a rigid approach to a subject that requires a clear and reasonable mind.
The reader is presented with an overview and left to form their own conclusions.
The author and the subject, exelent book, Paul Davies among other things is a philosopher to discuss the existence of God it needs faith, to prove it, require wisdom! !!!
