I have found Gerald Schroeder’s books, lectures and material outstanding.  I love the way he combines the very best of modern science with Biblical commentary.  He has been very helpful to me in my interactions with my own family members and friends.  I am able to converse with greater confidence about the Creator of the Universe and the God of the Bile.  Thanks heaps!

Amazing!! Worth every minute! You have to really focus to follow the logic, but the ending gave me chills. He uses the theory of relativity and the constant expansion of the universe to explain how the Jewish concept of the age of the universe (roughly 6000 years + 6 days) equals the scientific concept of the age of the universe (15 billion years). Very cool!

Please refer to Aryeh Kaplan’s book Immortality, Resurrection, and the age of the Universe:  A Kabbalistic View. He refers to Rabbi Issac of Akko who some 700 years ago concluded that the world would be 15,340,500,000 years old. When I expressed my surprise to my Rav, pointed out that rabbis in the past were much wiser than we are today.
