Reviews

"In this book, as in his previous ones, whenever Herman Wouk speaks of God it is always with both exquisite curiosity and warmth."--Elie Wiesel
"Wouk's questions are pure, his exploration heartfelt, and his remarkable lifetime of experience couldn't be more relevant or necessary."--Jonathan Safran Foer
"With ease and intensity, Wouk leads us deep into the shadows between religion and science and shows us they are not separate mountains but one luminous, interconnected landscape. And yet, like the best of guides, he urges us to see and discover with our own eyes. A stunning rumination on life's important questions by a masterful storyteller."--Marisha Pessl, author of Special Topics in Calamity Physics
"Masterful...After several readings, I keep finding new treasures in this fascinating book."--Maarten Schmidt, Francis L. Moseley Professor of Astronomy, Emeritus, California Institute of Technology
"Extraordinary. Wouk's recounting of conversations with Richard Feynman is not to be missed."--Stanley B. Prusiner, Nobel Laureate, Director of the Institute for Neurodegenerative Diseases at University of California, San Francisco
"In a crowded book market filled with self-serving and redundant theories about humankind's place in the grand scheme, it is rare to encounter an original, honest, charming voice. Such is the case with Wouk's latest work....Wouk's humility, humor and insight make the book a joy to read and a wonder to contemplate...Authentic, accessible prose mixed with real insight."--Kirkus Reviews
"This book will interest any person of faith who has followed Wouk's storied career and read his fiction."--Publishers Weekly
"...as engaging as [Wouk's] megaselling historical novels....Hard not to like."--Booklist
