As a child the author was groomed for the Jewish rabbinate but chose to study physics and mathematics at university instead, where he embraced atheism. After completing his degree, a psychedelic experience rekindled his interest in religion. How to reconcile the contradiction of a rational scientific outlook with the seemingly irrational coherence of the universe as exposed by the psychedelic experience was an intellectual challenge he could not resist. It churned in the background of his mind while he raised a family and pursued a career as a software designer. Retirement provided the opportunity to settle his thoughts and formulate how such a reconciliation might be humanly meaningful. That reconciliation is the substance of “Physical Spirituality”. Michael is also the author of the “Oracle of Love”, a popular contemporary interpretation of the I Ching. The Oracle of Love is accessible as a website and ebook.
"My road to atheism was paved by science . . . but, ironically, so was my later journey to God," Strobel says.
During his academic years, Lee Strobel became convinced that God was obsolete, a belief that colored his journalism career. Science had made the idea of a Creator irrelevant - or so Strobel thought.
But today science points in a different direction. A diverse and impressive body of research has increasingly supported the conclusion that the universe was intelligently designed. At the same time, Darwinism has faltered in the face of concrete facts and hard reason. Has science discovered God? At the very least, it's giving faith an immense boost, as new findings emerge about the incredible complexity of our universe.
Join Strobel as he reexamines the theories that once led him away from God. Through his compelling and highly readable account, you’ll encounter the mind-stretching discoveries from cosmology, cellular biology, DNA research, astronomy, physics, and human consciousness that present astonishing evidence in The Case for a Creator.
