Publisher's Summary

Does science discredit the Bible, God, religious faith? Absolutely not, says Dr. Michael Guillen, former Harvard physics instructor and Emmy-winning ABC News science editor. In Amazing Truths, he uses his entertaining, down-to-earth storytelling skills to reveal 10 astonishing truths affirmed by both ancient scripture and modern science that answer some of our biggest questions: Can faith really move mountains? Does absolute truth exist? Are humans truly unique? Is it possible to communicate with God? How much about the universe do we actually know? How could Jesus have been fully man and fully God?

In Amazing Truths, Dr. Guillen explains that faith is not some outdated way of thinking. Faith is a necessary part of science, Christianity, and any intelligent, comprehensive, coherent worldview - vastly more powerful than even logic. Amazing Truths will expand your mind and bolster your faith. You will see for yourself what Dr. Guillen, a theoretical physicist and devout Christian, has discovered in a lifetime of serious exploration - that science and faith are not at odds. In fact, they're the ultimate power couple.

very much encouraged

great arguments relating scientific truth to biblical truth. it is a very worthwhile reading for agnostics. it is encouraging for belivers. as to the hardcore atheists I'm sure they can come up with all sorts of counter arguments, but it is still better that they read the book first, cover to cover.

Not what I was looking for

If you are looking for scientific proof of religious truths, this is not the book you are looking for. This book simply shows the parallels between science and the Bible. There really aren’t any profound connections that somebody familiar with mainstream science and the popular stories of the Bible would not make. If you are familiar with neither than this could be a useful guide but I assume if you found this book you are at least familiar with both.
I will say that it was entertaining to get a refresher of popular scientific truths followed by viewpoints based on the Bible. All things considered, I think I’d be better off if I instead spent a day reading summaries of both mainstream science and popular Bible stories.

Kind of Annoying

This book had some interesting stuff in it - science and historical anecdotes. But I couldn't finish it because the author seemed so close-minded towards other religions and world views. His arrogance really irritated me.

Apparently written by a Christian scientist

As a renowned scientist well versed with scientific methods, why does Michael accept what is written in the Bible at face value??
We know there are many contradictions and different interpretations of the Bible as we examine and delve deeper

exceptional topic and superbly knowledgable author

great book. too much our society looks to proofs on science when the Truth is in agreement with and most science actually points to our creator. I'm super pleased to have heard and read this book.
