A concise and accessible introduction to Hawking's influential contributions to modern physics and cosmology. But God, Stephen Hawking and the Multiverse is not mere fan-service: it takes a critical and realistic look at how these ideas are viewed today. Importantly, it looks carefully at Hawking's forays beyond physics into philosophy and theology. Highly recommended. * Dr Luke Barnes, John Templeton Postdoctoral Fellow, Western Sydney University, Australia *
If you have ever wanted to understand what Stephen Hawking was talking about but couldn't face the maths, this is the book for you. If you have ever felt uncomfortable that such an eminent scientist should dismiss the need for God, this is also the book for you. In an entertaining yet searching way, the authors put Hawking's work in perspective, scientifically, philosophically and theologically. * Dr Althea Wilkinson, School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Manchester *
The task of scientific popularization is an extremely difficult one, which very few are able to pull off successfully. But Hutchings and Wilkinson have shown themselves to be masters of the genre. Their book is an astonishingly good read, a gripping and thought-provoking account of the quest to probe the deepest mysteries of the universe. * William Lane Craig *
This gripping account of Hawking's deep and imaginative ideas on the origin of the universe (and much more) will delight and enrich any reader, irrespective of background. The balanced and informed theological commentary and critique is helpful - it shows how science stimulates and informs way beyond its own borders. * Prof. Tom McLeish FRS, Professor of Natural Philosophy, University of York *
