From back cover: When and how did the universe begin?

What does science have to say about miracles?

What is the purpose of free will if all is foreseen?

These, and countless other questions about creation, space, time, the universe and all things in between were considered long ago by those who understood how to read the Torah at its deepest level of meaning. Those not familiar with these commentaries believe that there is an insurmountable conflict between the Bible and science. But that is not the case. On the contrary. The latest scientific discoveries are in full accord with the Torah. The more science uncovers, the more we find agreement with impossible- sounding statements made centuries and millennia ago on the basis of what the Bible tells us.

Learn how our understanding of the universe, based on the twentieth-century science of quantum mechanics, relativity theory and big bang cosmology, compares to predictions made centuries ago from the Bible. How did the early universe get from chaos to order in seeming defiance of the second law of thermodynamics? How is it possible to reconcile a 6000-year time period with one counted in billions of years? Does G-d need to use a time machine to observe all space and time? Why are prominent scientists claiming that the universe is so strange that it really should not and cannot exist? Read this book and find out.

Our Comments: I'm not going to pretend that I understood 1 out of 10 pages of this book, but the ones that I could partially grasp were breathtaking. Buy it!
