Most of us would shrink from comparing ourselves with Dr. Einstein. Nevertheless, you may be more like him than you think. Do you believe-or at least suspect-that there is a supreme being behind the cosmos? Would you like to know more about him? Do you want to understand how, when, and why he created the universe? Or what will become of it in ages to come? If so, you really are like Einstein: a seeker of spiritual and cosmological truth. In Search of the Beginning was written especially for you. In it, author Dean Davis invites you on a fascinating journey to the origin of the universe, life, and man. Along the way, you'll consider how the journey can be made successfully-whether by scientific theorizing, mystical experience, or divine revelation. You will visit with philosophical naturalists, both ancient and modern. You'll hear from pantheists, both classical and evolutionary. Most importantly, you'll ponder afresh the cosmological views of one who is arguably the most trusted religious teacher of all time. And you will not be disappointed with what he says. Throughout the journey, Davis shows himself a competent and compassionate guide. He holds degrees in both Philosophy and Theology. Also, he has been an avid student of origins science for many years. Most importantly, for four long years he made his own difficult pilgrimage toward spiritual reality-years that qualify him to speak with feeling and insight to seekers everywhere, especially those immersed in Eastern religions. In Search of the Beginning is unlike any book on cosmology you have ever read: informed, readable, spiritually minded, and at times even poetic. But more than this, it is a book that actually goes somewhere: to the beginning, and to the one who began it all.
