By Krista Tippett
Albert Einstein didn't think in a private God. And his well-known quip that "God doesn't play cube with the universe" used to be a press release approximately quantum physics, no longer a press release of religion. yet he did depart in the back of a desirable, principally forgotten legacy of musings and writings-some critical, a few whimsical-about the connection among technology and faith and his personal inquisitive reverence for the "order deeply hidden at the back of everything". Einstein's self-described "cosmic non secular feel" is intriguingly appropriate with twenty-first-century sensibilities. And it's the place to begin for Einstein's God.
Drawn from American Public Media's amazing application Speaking of Faith, the conversations during this profoundly illuminating booklet discover an rising interface of inquiry-if now not answers-between many fields of technology, medication, theology and philosophy.

Raman, and Mehmet ounces, Krista Tippett attracts out the connections among those geographical regions, exhibiting how even these so much wedded to not easy truths locate non secular enlightenment within the lifetime of scan and, in flip, elevate questions which are richly theologically evocative. even if she is talking with celebrated health care professional and writer Sherwin Nuland concerning the biology of the human spirit or wondering Darwin biographer James Moore approximately his subject's spiritual ideals, Tippett bargains an extraordinary examine the way in which our greatest minds grapple with the questions for which all of us search answers.
