In this groundbreaking book, physicist Gerald Schroeder takes on skeptics from both sides of the cosmological debate, arguing that science and the Bible are not at odds concerning the origin of the universe.
In a timely fusion of science and faith, the scientist and popular writer Gerald L. Schroeder explains why cutting-edge scientific theories point to a great plan underlying the universe.A couple of weeks ago, I told you about getting this book from the library:
The Science of God: The Convergence of Scientific and Biblical Wisdom ~ by Gerald L. Schroeder, 1997, religion/scienceThe top two books were already on my own bookshelves. I bought and read Genesis and the Big Bang in the first week of February 1992. I bought The Hidden Face of God in December 2001, but haven't read it yet. I'm finally reading The Science of God (yes, the one from the library), and yes, they are all by the same author.

"These were Rob J.'s last safe and secure moments of blessed innocence, but in his ignorance he considered it hardship to be forced to remain near his father's house with his brothers and his sister."I'm ready to start reading this novel, having decided the one I'm slogging through now is so annoyingly awful that I'm rating it DNF (Did Not Finish) and tossing it aside.

An orphan leaves Dark Ages London, taking a dangerous journey and posing as a Jew to study medicine in Persia. A child holds the hand of his dying mother and is terrified, aware something is taking her. Orphaned and given to an itinerant barber-surgeon, Rob Cole becomes a fast-talking swindler, peddling a worthless medicine. But as he matures, his strange gift — an acute sensitivity to impending death — never leaves him, and he yearns to become a healer. Arab madrassas are the only authentic medical schools, and he makes his perilous way to Persia. Christians are barred from Muslim schools, but claiming he is a Jew, he studies under the world’s most renowned physician, Avicenna. The Physician is the first book in Noah Gordon’s Dr. Robert Cole trilogy, which continues with Shaman and concludes with Matters of Choice.

"That was my place for hiding books." "Why did you need to hide them? Did your parents disapprove of your reading?" "Oma did not like it. My grandmother," she explained ... "She would hide my books if she found them lying about, so I hid them from her. Oma thought reading another word for idleness. I was going to the lake to read when the warriors found me" (loc. 778).65. The Jericho Iteration ~ by Allen Steele, 1994, 2013, fiction (Missouri), 10/10
