With a revolutionary approach combining Biblical study and scientific inquiry‚ renowned physicist Gerald Schroeder presents the culmination of decades of research to explore the unmoved mover. Schroeder turns his sights on the Force he has never been able to define. Using his scientific approach to look at the facts presented in the world as we know it and God's own account‚ the Bible‚ he tackles straight on the juxtaposition of God as loving and all-powerful with the evil and difficulty that is inherent in our world. He argues that if we look closely at the Bible‚ the God we find within its pages is 100% compatible with the world as we know it today. It is our misconception of God that causes the disparity. In fact the concept of God that atheists rail against and that believers defend is actually an inaccurate portrait of God.
Through in depth examination of the Biblical text as well as a scientific exploration of nature‚ Schroeder presents the case for a dynamic God‚ a God that is still learning how to relate to the creation it created. Schroeder retranslates a key verse in Exodus that is typically translated "I am that which I am." His revelation that it should be "I will be that which I will be‚" describes a God that is continually changing‚ a dynamic presence in our world.
With chapters on subjects such as how to understand a God who regrets‚ why God wants us to argue with him‚ why nature rebels‚ and much more‚ we ultimately learn how to become partners with God in his creation.
Sure to provoke much controversy and debate‚ God According to God offers a radical paradigm shift in the ongoing debate between science and religion.
