About the Book

An extraordinary prayer experiment is under way in the United States. 600 heart surgery patients will be prayed for. A further 600 will not be prayed for. Will God choose to cooperate? Or are there better ways to demonstrate God's existence? In The God Experiment, Russell Stannard looks at what modern science can bring to the ancient question: how can we prove God's existence? Comparing the latest scientific theories and age-old religious thinking, Stannard produces some startling parallels. He examines Creationism and the Big Bang, Biblical miracles and Quantum physics, and the idea of anomniscient God in the context of 4D spacetime. The God Experiment is a fascinating challenge to our assumptions about God, science and our place in the Universe.

    Russell Stannard is Emeritus Professor of Physics at the Open University. He has travelled widely in Europe and the USA, researching high energy nuclear physics. He has received the Templeton UK project award and spent a year in America as a visiting fellow at the Center of Theological Theory, Princeton. He was awarded an OBE for services to physics and the popularisation of science. Married with four children of his own and three stepchildren, he vividly remembers the excitement of discovering Einstein's theories for the first time and he is dedicated to passing this inspiration on to new generations. The Time and Space of Uncle Albert was shortlisted for both the Science Award and the Whitbread Award, and his books have been translated into seventeen different languages.
