Reviews

"Bussey explains that many of the physical parameters of our universe must be very close to their measured values if the universe is to be human friendly. There are many, many more ways the universe could be wrong rather than right for life. Although there is some ambiguity as to whether this situation clearly points to a creator, Bussey goes further to argue that consciousness clearly tips the balance toward the universe being created by God."--Robert C. Bishop, associate professor of physics and philosophy, John and Madeleine McIntyre Endowed Professor of Philosophy and History of Science, Wheaton College
"The spreading belief in a fundamental opposition between religion and science intensifies the need for scientists to weigh in on the question. In reader-friendly prose, Bussey presents a balanced, sober, up-to-date account of the many ways in which current physics and cosmology not only remain open to belief, but point the way to it, indicating the existence of an intelligent cause prior to the world of nature. A fine contribution to the great conversation between physics, philosophy, and faith."--Michael Augros, author of Who Designed the Designer?
