"More years ago than I care to reckon up, I met Richard Feynman." So begins the author's work on navigating the divide between science and religion. Told by Feynman that he must first learn "the language God talks", calculus, the author set in motion a lifelong inquiry. Here, in one compact volume, he draws on stories from his life as well as on key events from the 20th century to address the eternal questions of why we are here, what purpose faith serves, and how scientific fact fits into the picture. He relates wonderful conversations he's had with scientists such as Feynman, Murray Gell-Mann, Freeman Dyson, and Steven Weinberg, and brings to life such pivotal moments as the 1969 moon landing and the Challenger space shuttle disaster. --From publisher description
