The universe is a collection of microscopically small particles which developed at the very beginning from a Big Bang. Scientists can describe very precisely how all this came about. It makes breathtaking reading, but one's heart remains cold. Science seems to strive for a comprehensive explanation of the world in which we live. If that is the case, then belief in God will be ruled out. But is it really the WHOLE of reality? If scientists ever finish their work, will they then understand EVERYTHING? Or are there, as Hamlet says to Horatio, more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy?

Taking issue with recent scientific writers on this theme, the author of this book, a physicist himself, looks not only at recent developments in science but also at scientists themselves, and the motivations behind their scientific activities. The result is a fascinating survey of modern science and an encouraging indication that the possibility of meaningful religious belief is still very much there.
