First, it is a beautiful book, with simply stunning photographs of the heavens, stars, nebulae, and more throughout the pages, making this a book a joy visually. If like me you find the science and scientific discoveries of our universe interesting and fascinating, this book will be a true delight. And this book will ask questions based on that science, questions any intellectually honest person will appreciate grappling with: Does science rule out faith? Is faith and the story of the Bible compatible with what we know of the universe? If everything we see simply came to be by mere chance, why do humans ask 'why'?
Last, but not least, the book is a fun read. Sure, parts are technical but the book is extremely readable and enjoyable.
All the way across the board, this is an outstanding book.
I especially like, Dr. Salviader's chapter on black holes. Her concise explanation of the history involving black holes and her four points, on the limits to accepting new evidence, is very intriguing. I highly recommend this section of the book. I ended her chapter, feeling a great sense of gratefulness towards, Dr. Salviander, in that I trust the information that she writes about, and writes it in a manner that is accessible to the reader.
Highly recommend this book, in toto.
You don’t have to be a Phd to enjoy this book. It’s completely digestible for the laymen who’s interested in astronomy. If a non-scientifically minded philosophy major like myself can grasp its key concepts, anyone can. And if you’re still not convinced that it wouldn’t be over your head, just get it for the pictures. The photos are numerous and stunning and will keep you thumbing through the book just to gaze at the glossies. “The Story of The Cosmos” is definitely a book to be savored and shared.
