When people gaze at the heavens, what do they see? Arnold Benz may finally have the answer. In this ground-breaking book the renowned Swiss astronomer looks to -- and beyond -- the stars to find a happy coexistence between science and faith. Unlike others who have sought to intertwine the two, Benz, a professor emeritus at ETH Zurich's Institute for Astronomy, finds paradoxical, parallel universes of each -- neither dependent upon the other, but both telling compelling, complementary tales that put our very existence in perspective.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A sparkling gem lying in a vast field of books of science and religion. Reading it is a religious experience in itself." --Jesse Thomas, author, The Youniverse: The Spirit of the Twenty First Century
"Scientific inquiry alone cannot answer theological questions. But it can pose them, and may even force them upon us. Arnold Benz is a scientist at the cutting edge of developments in astrophysics and astronomy in Europe and the United States. In this beautiful and at times deeply moving reflection he affirms the human quest for meaning, a quest that can never be satisfied solely within the boundaries of science, but requires our engagement and our awe in the presence of an amazing reality of which we are a part, and to which we belong." --Christopher Bryan, professor, New Testament University of the South, Sewanee; author, The Resurrection of the Messiah and Listening to the Bible
"It's not necessary to claim God's intervention for every unexplained event. Research has made obsolete older concepts, such as our solar system being the center of the universe. Although the mystery remains of what happened, there may be an explanation." --Donna Ford, US Review of Books
