The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Produced in a clear, large font with occasional illustrations to clarify tricky points, and chapters short enough to retain the attention of even the most casual of readers, this is a cleverly written book by a journalist who also happens to have a PhD in astrophysics. The twenty questions turn on the nature, age and size of the universe, the composition of stars, the formation of the universe and the earth, black holes, dark matter, dark energy, stardust, time and space travel, alternative universes, discussion of whether Einstein was right about gravitational force versus space-time warp, and the cosmological evidence for God.
~ Victoria Bentata
