For generations it has been assumed that the discoveries of science, especially in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, tended to refute the beliefs of religious people and established religions, and challenged the very existence of God. Templeton makes a striking argument for just the opposite point of view. He goes to the writings of many of the world's leading scientific thinkers - as diverse in background as Albert Einstein and Teilhard de Chardin - and discovers them in awe of the universe, perceiving the hand of Divine mystery at work. Templeton believes that the best way to know God is through a reverential, open, humble approach. He presents this humble approach as the one that many of the most distinguished scientists have come to in their quest for knowledge and meaning.

"The word humility is used here to mean admission that God infinitely exceeds anything anyone has ever said of Him; and that He is infinitely beyond human comprehension and understanding. A prime purpose of this book is to help us become more humble and thereby reduce the stumbling blocks placed in our paths toward heaven by our own egos."
