Einsteins God: Conversations About Science and the Human Spirit by Krista Tippett

Albert Einstein did not believe in a personal God. And his famous quip that God does not play dice with the universe was a statement about quantum physics, not a statement of faith. But he did leave behind a fascinating, largely forgotten legacy of musings and writings-some serious, some whimsical-about the relationship between science and religion and his own inquisitive reverence for the order deeply hidden behind everything. Einsteins self-described cosmic religious sense is intriguingly compatible with twenty-first-century sensibilities. And it is the starting point for Einsteins God. Drawn from American Public Medias extraordinary program Speaking of Faith, the conversations in this profoundly illuminating book explore an emerging interface of inquiry-if not answers-between many fields of science, medicine, theology and philosophy. In her interviews with such luminaries as Freeman Dyson, Paul Davies, V. V. Raman, and Mehmet Oz, Krista Tippett draws out the connections between these realms, showing how even those most wedded to hard truths find spiritual enlightenment in the life of experiment and, in turn, raise questions that are richly theologically evocative. Whether she is speaking with celebrated surgeon and author Sherwin Nuland about the biology of the human spirit or questioning Darwin biographer James Moore about his subjects religious beliefs, Tippett offers a rare look at the way our best minds grapple with the questions for which we all seek answers.
