By Krista Tippett
Albert Einstein didn't think in a private God. And his recognized quip that "God doesn't play cube with the universe" was once a press release approximately quantum physics, now not a press release of religion. yet he did go away at the back of a desirable, principally forgotten legacy of musings and writings-some severe, a few whimsical-about the connection among technology and faith and his personal inquisitive reverence for the "order deeply hidden at the back of everything". Einstein's self-described "cosmic non secular experience" is intriguingly appropriate with twenty-first-century sensibilities. And it's the start line for Einstein's God.
Drawn from American Public Media's notable application Speaking of Faith, the conversations during this profoundly illuminating publication discover an rising interface of inquiry-if no longer answers-between many fields of technological know-how, drugs, theology and philosophy. In her interviews with such luminaries as Freeman Dyson, Paul Davies, V. V. Raman, and Mehmet oz., Krista Tippett attracts out the connections among those geographical regions, displaying how even these so much wedded to tough truths locate non secular enlightenment within the lifetime of test and, in flip, increase questions which are richly theologically evocative. even if she is talking with celebrated physician and writer Sherwin Nuland concerning the biology of the human spirit or wondering Darwin biographer James Moore approximately his subject's non secular ideals, Tippett bargains an extraordinary examine the best way our greatest minds grapple with the questions for which all of us search answers.
Krista Tippett's most modern book, Becoming Wise, could be released on April five, 2016.
