Publisher's Summary

Setting aside the pervasive material bias of science and lifting the obscuring fog of religious sectarianism reveals a surprisingly clear unity of science and religion. The explanations of transcendent phenomena given by saints, sages, and near-death experiencers are fully congruent with scientific discoveries in the fields of relativity, quantum physics, medicine, M-theory, neuroscience, and quantum biology.

The Physics of God describes the intersections of science and religion with colorful, easy-to-understand metaphors, making abstruse subjects within both science and religion easily accessible to the layman-no math, no dogma. This intriguing book:

  • Pulls back the curtain on the light-show illusion we call matter.
  • Reveals the scientific secret of life and immortality: quantum biology's startling discovery that the human body is continuously entangled.
  • Demonstrates the miracle-making power of our minds to effect instantaneous physiological changes.
  • Explains how the intelligent observer effect confirms our high spiritual potential.

Critic Reviews

"The Physics of God is the best book on the subject that I have ever read. It is a clear and lucid explanation of the interface between science and spirituality, as well as consciousness and matter. Anyone, scientist or layman, will benefit from this marvelous book." (Jyotish Novak, author of How to Meditate)

Deeply Satisfying

I have been studying spirituality through the lens of modern day science for some time. The fusion of science and spirit has never been clearer to me than it is now, thanks to this wonderful book. The Audible presentation is very good, especially considering the volume of quotations in the book, and I never felt lost.

a different narrator would have made this better

Overall a pretty good listen if you are interested in the topic. Could not stand the narrator though -always over pronouncing ‘s’ sounds. And it was a little skewed towards religion. The science was well explained and supported by facts while the “facts” religion had to offer are still supported by little more then unexplained belief. I still enjoyed the book as a whole though, and would recommend!

loved listening to it after Richard Dawkins's work

this book gave me several insights.. it helped me reconcile my inner learning and experience with scientific thought and dogmas.. I feel enriched, having listened to it! if this book comes your way, just grab it!!

Must read!

I have spent over a decade of reading and studying Christian theology and history, Gnosticism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Western Philosophy, Quantum physics, world history, anthropology and more. This book sums up the conclusion of all that reading in one clear and concise book.

Fascinating and research based

A little complex in places and could benefit from a second listen, but overall fascinating and geared to the lady reader. I've thought for years that quantum physics would eventually merge science and religion. this is definitely a start. I actually might get this book in hard copy so that I can review some of the complex parts more easily.

Great summation for the layman

It was wonderful to discover a book that remained so open to the spiritual perspective and yet did such a great job of explaining the science. I learned many fascinating things about quantum physics and contemporary theory. Well done.

Disappointing due to inaccurate physics

I was disappointed by this book as the reporting on physics was inaccurate to the point of carelessness. Some of the errors were minor--the claim that Bohm worked on the Manhattan project (he didn't) and misattribution of a famous quote to Feynman that was actually said by David Mermin ("Shut up and calculate!").

But, one mis-statement of the book is major--that the consciousness of an intelligent being is required to convert particles in a quantum state to a particle. No major physicist has maintained this, and there is certainly no experimental evidence for this. In the 1920's and 30's major physicists like Schrodinger and Heisenberg thought it possible that consciousness was necessary to granting physical reality to particles. But they were not saying anything about the consciousness of an "intelligent being."

Since that time, physicists have moved away from the idea of consciousness playing a role in favor of an information theory approach. The information theory approach is entirely consistent with experimental results and quantum mechanics theory.

Personally, I believe that consciousness plays a role in creating our perception of our universe. But to make claims that physicists hold that intelligent consciousness changes quantum states to physical states is just plain inaccurate.

I'm pushing myself to listen to the entire book, because I am finding things out about string theory that I didn't know--you can be sure, however, that I will be checking everything that the author is saying about it! I really have to push myself to listen to it because the narration has a sing-songy "sweetness and light" quality. Yes, I find this book annoying.

Not about Quantum Physics!!!!

I don't like to put people's work down. And, I don't like to write many reviews. However, I must at the very least point out that this book has very little to do with Quantum Physics. I was looking for book that would help in understanding Quantum Physics as a science. A book to help define concepts and theories. A book to help explain terms and simplify complex ideas.

This book has little to none of those things. I has a short portions that talk about Quantum theory. But what this book really concentrates on is Metaphysics. Metaphysics may or may not be a philosophy, but it is certainly not a science. There is a big portion devoted to "sitting still" as the only way to really understanding and how all the religions look for an inner peace that can shed light on our existence.

Well, if Metaphysics is what you want to know about great. But if what you are looking for is understanding Quantum physics. THEN, THIS IS NOT THE BOOK FOR YOU!!

Scientific and Spiritual Satisfaction

Equally quenched my thirst for spiritual discussion and scientific exploration. One of my FAVORITE BOOKS EVER.

Very enjoyable and interesting.

Great book, if you are of a scientific mind and have an interest in the spiritual this book brings the two together quite coherently.... As it should be. (the word "God" in the title should be spirituality, the book is more about consciousness and the human experience with some aspects relating to religions)

Great read

I really enjoyed the science parts of this book. They were well worth the effort of having to listen to the other stuff about multiple personality disorder and ESP, which I'm not so interested in. Personal taste though. I'd definitely recommend this book even if you're not religious because it doesn't have to be about God. I read it with biocentrism in mind.

Amazing

This book is quite literally amazing, because I spent the entire time being amazed by what I was learning. It has opened the door to show me an entire new world(s) that I didn't even know existed. Highly recommended.

excellent

great book but I think the author would have been better served not making theological remarks instead focusing on the scientific and philosophical. I would definitely recommend it.

Fantastic, absolutely amazing!

I loved this audio book and will be listening to it again. It felt so calming to listen to, yet so empowering too. It absolutely makes sense and reaffirmed what I believed about the spiritual and energetic side of religion.

Interesting Read

This was a good book to listen to and opened the mind to all sorts of possibilities of God being involved in quantum physics. The material was intense in its presentation and I will have to listen to it again. I pondered a lot on what was being said whilst listening, so missed some of the content . I need to make a much fuller and more detailed review on the book after I have listened to the book again.

Essential for expanding your understanding..

This has to be one of the most enlightening books I've listened to. If you feel there IS something beyond what we already know, this book gives a very credible explanation.
I'm slightly biased as I'm a big fan of anything which connects with quantum theories and as a person who uses positive thought and positive energy.
Sean Runette is brilliant as narrator and gives the book a slightly humorous taste while maintaining the impact of the implications of the subject.

Expand your understanding and add this to your library.

Captivating

Narrator was excellent nice tone and speed. Very Interesting and thought provoking really enjoyed this book. Would highly recommend set out well good mix of science and religion which leads you to the connections between the two. Straight forward no waffle.
