The Hidden Face Of God: How Science Reveals The Ultimate Truth

a book by Gerald Schroeder


The Hidden Face of God takes a bold step forward to show that science, properly understood, provides positive reasons for faith. From the wisdom encoded in DNA and analyzed by information science, to the wisdom unveiled in the complexity of cellular life, to the wisdom inherent in human consciousness, The Hidden Face of God offers a tour of the best of modern science. This fascinating volume will open a world of science to religious believers, and it will cause skeptics to rethink some of their deepest beliefs.

An earlier book by Schroeder, The Science of God, combined the thinking of the 13th-century Kabalist scholar Nachmonodies with modern cosmology and general relativity, and thereby found a way out of a dilemma (a seeming conflict) between modern physics and an Orthodox reading of Scripture. In The Hidden Face of God, Schroeder leaves physics and instead goes into molecular biology. Throughout the book, Schroeder frequently shows how a feature along the road to humanity is not just a "surprising coincidence" but is evidence that wisdom was built into the system from the outset. In several instances, after presenting scientific facts, he identifies a place in Scripture and shows how it says the same thing, and points out the link to the wisdom hidden beneath it all. Schroeder goes on to assert that wisdom is the basis of information, and "...our universe may be the manifestation of information."
