Read full description of the books:
I received a free copy of the book from the publisher through NetGalley.
I am a Christian, an engineer, and a fan of science. I thought that this book would be up my alley, but instead I was hugely disappointed.
The author tries to draw parallels between the physical world and the Christian faith. That sounds great but a lot of the parallels are awkward. For example, quantum entanglement is a metaphor for how God speaks to us in mysterious ways. Light is a particle and a wave in the same way that Jesus is God and man. (Too bad he didn't say that water is a metaphor for the Trinity. That's one of my favorites.) You get the idea. The theology was fine but the examples felt forced and superficial.
I'm also not sure who the intended audience is. Is this meant to convince skeptics or encourage those who already believe? If anything this book has made me more skeptical about books that try to synthesize faith with science.

Read information about the authorA three-time Emmy Award winner, best-selling author, and former Harvard University instructor, Dr. Michael Guillen is known and loved by millions as the ABC News Science Editor, a post he filled for fourteen years (1988-2002). In that capacity, he appeared regularly on Good Morning America, 20/20, Nightline and World News Tonight. He is host of “Where Did It Come From?,” a popular, weekly, one-hour primetime series for The History Channel that debuted in Fall 2006.
In association with Anonymous Content, Dr. Guillen produced LITTLE RED WAGON, an award-winning theatrical motion picture written by Patrick Sheane Duncan (MR. HOLLAND’S OPUS), directed by David Anspaugh (RUDY, HOOSIERS), and inspired by the true story of young Zach Bonner, who in 2010 completed his historic March Across America (Jacksonville, FL to Santa Monica, CA) on behalf of our nation’s estimated 1.3 million homeless children.
Among Dr. Guillen’s past television projects, he served as writer and host of the PBS special “Wit, Grit, and Robot Games,” the ten-part PBS series “Great Minds of Business” and “Great Minds of Medicine,” and the ABC special “SeaWorld Mother Earth Celebration” with co-host Mayim Bialik (“Blossom”). Additionally, he has brought his skills as a consultant and technical advisor to studios such as MGM, Fox and Buena Vista, as well as Walt Disney’s Epcot Center.
Over the years, Dr. Guillen has written hundreds of articles for many distinguished publications, from magazines such as Science News and Psychology Today to national newspapers including The New York Times and The Washington Post. He is the best-selling author of two critically acclaimed books for the general public about mathematics: Bridges to Infinity: the Human Side of Mathematics and Five Equations that Changed the World: the Power and Poetry of Mathematics. His latest book, Can a Smart Person Believe in God?, tells of his lifelong attempt to reconcile his scientific career with his deeply religious upbringing.
A native of East Los Angeles, Dr. Guillen earned his B.S. from UCLA and his Ph.D. in physics, mathematics and astronomy from Cornell University. For eight years thereafter, he distinguished himself as an award-winning physics instructor at Harvard University. He has received Honorary Doctorates from the University of Maryland and Pepperdine University. A coveted public speaker, he is a member of the National Association of Science Writers and, in 2000, was elected to the renowned Explorers Club, a century-old professional society.
Dr. Michael Guillen is president of Spectacular Science Productions Inc., and Filmanthropy Media Incorporated, as well as chairman and president of Philanthropy Project. He lives in Southern California with his wife, son, black Lab Annie, horse Jim Dandy, and four lambs: Sir Barton, Lady Guinevere, Mercia, and Marucci.
