Riassunto: New and updated Third Edition from Hugh Ross. Since the publication of "Beyond the Cosmos" first and second editions, scientists have made even more discoveries substantially strengthening the evidence for general relativity (hence for a transcendent Creator) and for string theory (hence for a ten-dimensional cosmos). This new edition builds on the new data and adds more evidence for the biblical account of origins.
How can it be?
- How can my choices be totally "free" if God is in control of all things at all times and knows the end from the beginning?
- How can God hear my words and thoughts while listening to billions of others around the world at exactly the same moment?
- How can God be all-powerful and all-loving and yet allow so much suffering and evil?
These are complex paradoxes with far-reaching implications that have troubled people for centuries, testing the faith of those who believe in the biblical, personal God, and proving a stumbling block to those who do not.
But phenomena that seem impossible in the four-dimensional world we know (the three dimensions of space, plus the dimension of time) can become comprehensible when examined in the context of extra dimensions. Recent scientific discoveries have established that the equivalent of at least eleven dimensions exist. What are the implications of a personal God who can operate in and beyond such a realm?
The Bible is unique among the sacred writings of the world's great religions, describing God as existing beyond the reaches of time and space as we know them. In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Hugh Ross examines scientific evidence that confirms the Bible's declaration about God's role in creation and may help explain some of the great paradoxes of the Christian faith.
Drawing on substantial evidence, Dr. Ross invites us to know and experience God in a way we have never done before. As a result, our love and appreciation of Him will be dramatically deepened, and the way we relate to Him and to others-both believers and nonbelievers-will be changed forever.
"Hugh Ross always offers stimulating perspective on both God and science. And this book will certainly encourage you to think-whether you're a Christ-follower, a spiritual seeker, or even a skeptic."
- Bill Hybels, senior pastor, Willow Creek Community Church
"Dr. Ross has shown that the tools scientists have used to deal with paradoxes in the physical world can also be applied to gain important insight into various paradoxes in Scripture. Difficulties that have plagued the Christian community for centuries are not only clarified when 'seen' from the point of view of one living in a higher dimension, but those same difficulties also become the basis for strong proof of the supernatural inspiration of the Bible. This book will provide food for thought for any student of the Word and will, no doubt, begin a new area of biblical research to which others can contribute."
-David Rogstad, Ph.D., physicist, Caltech Jet Propulsion Laboratory
