A leading theologian presents a hopeful account of the universe after Einstein, exploring it as a meaningful drama of awakening
 
“This book is a deep and provocative piece of theology that proposes we engage with the universe as a kind of narrative of awakening and unfolding, as well as an important and useful approach for thinking about theology with respect to modern cosmology.”—Matthew Stanley, New York University
 
Before the early twentieth century, scientists and theologians knew almost nothing about time’s enormity and the corresponding immensity of space. But now, after Einstein, cosmology offers theology a whole new way of looking at the ageless questions about matter, time, God, cosmic purpose, and the significance of our lives. The universe need not be thought of as simply an endless reshuffling of lifeless and mindless atoms in a pointless series of moments. Rather, the universe is a temporal drama of awakening whose meaning can be revealed only gradually by looking, in a spirit of anticipation and hope, toward the horizon of the cosmic future.
 
In conversation with Einstein’s ideas and opinions, John F. Haught develops here a new cosmological understanding of the meaning of God, time, eternity, mystery, life, thought, freedom, and faith. In doing so, he offers readers a new way of understanding the relationship of science to theology.

John F. Haught is distinguished research professor at Georgetown University. He is the author of more than twenty books, including The New Cosmic Story: Inside Our Awakening Universe. He lives in Vero Beach, FL.

“What is really going on in the universe? As Haught argues in his profound and eminently readable book, Christian theology needs to take into account the structure and evolution of the universe as based upon Einstein’s general theory of relativity.”—Helge Stjernholm Kragh, Niels Bohr Institute, Denmark

Praise for The New Cosmic Story: Inside Our Awakening Universe
 
"Haught’s challenging insights draw us toward the great adventure of participating in the further awakening of cosmos and humanity—a vision of extraordinary boldness, promise and hope that overcomes cosmic pessimism with the fires of faith.”—Ursula King, Institute for Advanced Studies, University of Bristol, UK
 
“This book, John F. Haught’s summa, will become a permanent contribution to the religion and science literature.”—Holmes Rolston, III, winner of the Templeton Prize
 
“Haught delivers a singular contribution with his fresh, panoptic perspective on our cosmic story.”—Charles G. Conway, Reading Religion
 
“I have no doubt that The New Cosmic Story will enrich many and produce fruitful dialogues for years to come.” —John P. Slattery, Science & Christian Belief
 
“This wonderful book richly rewards a slow, meditative reading. . . . It is a profound critique of scientific materialism and a vigorous and persuasive argument for taking science seriously in one’s religious outlook.”—Thomas E. Hosinski, CSC, Horizons
