It's easy to laugh at those who believe that the earth is flat. But certain recent scientific theories suggest that the three space dimensions and one of time we observe are not sufficient to express a "theory of everything". Miracles, predestination, external life and other paradoxes may simply stem from a mismatch: humans using 3-D senses to experience a universe of as many as 11 dimensions. Recalling a 19th-century novel set in an imaginary world of 2-D creatures, the title "The New Flatlanders" is the name of a seekers' group. This record of their guided deliberations adds up to a defence of spirituality over materialism and gives Christian apologists greater confidence to debate with scientists.

"Everyone should buy a copy of this book . . . If you think science disproves faith, or faith can ignore science, read why you are wrong." -- Sam Berry
