Description

How did the world begin and how will it end? These questions are not new; what is new, Paul Davies argues, is that science may now be on the verge of answering them. Here he explains, in jargon-free language, how the recent far-reaching discoveries of the new physics are revolutionizing our view of the world and, in particular, throwing light on many of the questions formerly posed by religion. Science, Davies believes, has come of age, and can now offer a surer path to God than can religion.
