Book Description

16 Feb 2005
Peter Russell went from being a strict atheist and scientist to discovering a profound personal synthesis of the mystical and the scientific. That transition is the basis of this book. In From Science to God, he blends physics, psychology, and philosophy to reach a new worldview in which consciousness is a fundamental quality of creation. Russell shows how all the ingredients for this worldview are in place; it remains only to put the pieces together and explore the new picture of reality that emerges. Integrating a deep knowledge of science with his own experiences of meditation, Russell arrives at a universe similar to that described by many mystics — one in which the inner and outer worlds no longer conflict. The bridge between them, he shows, is light, and this book invites readers to cross that bridge to find new meaning in God and a deeper significance in spiritual practice.

4.0 out of 5 stars A scientist's spiritual autobiography 20 Oct 2010
By Dr. H. A. Jones TOP 500 REVIEWER
From Science to God: A physicist's journey into the mystery of consciousness, by Peter Russell, New World Library, Novato, CA, USA, 2003, 144 ff.

A scientist's spiritual autobiography
By Howard Jones

This is a story that, to a large extent, I was well able to resonate with. Specialising in science at an early age in school in Britain, like Peter Russell, I didn't really see any room or need for God. For that same reason, many enthusiastic young scientists, and a great many adult practicing scientists, become and remain as atheists. But Russell's path is a familiar one to many of us.

As he developed as a scientist he realised that the materialist description of the world that has formed the bedrock of science since the time of Copernicus and Newton is not adequate in describing the world of living things, least of all humankind. Russell graduated originally as a physicist at Cambridge but later his interest in the workings of the mind encouraged his study of psychology.

Russell's book describes how he, and many other scientists, especially physicists and psychologists, engaged with spirituality in order to adequately model and explain the actual behaviour of the material world. As part of his own enlightenment, Russell spent time at an ashram in India to develop this sense of spirituality.

This short book describes in broad outline the path of science over the past four centuries and how physicists have come to realise that there is so much compatibility between science and the spiritual. It is illustrated with many spiritual sayings from scientists like Max Planck and Einstein and mystics like St. Augustine and Teilhard de Chardin. There is no challenging science here.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite books 9 Jan 2010
I have just brought my second copy of this book because I lend it to so many people and I like to be able to dip into it at any time. This is a brilliant book. Peter Russell explores human consciousness and makes his concepts totally accessible to even the most sceptical left-brainer. Wonderful!

Yes. A good book. Mr Russell has gone out of his way to entertain even the most hard-headed materialistic skeptics among us to the idea of a universal spirit source, 'bridging the gap' between science and spirituality, so to speak. Both scientific and spiritual factors are well covered, with the bare essentials being laid out for us, rather than going 'down the rabbit-hole' of either too much quantumn physics, or spiritual dogma.

5.0 out of 5 stars mind-blowing 20 April 2001
By A Customer
I finished reading this book yesterday. Whilst being deep it is totally accessible. It is grounded in science and reason, yet is profound and beautiful. Peter Russell is the clearest writer on this subject that I have so far come across, This book will change you, whether you like it or not. But I am sure you'll like it.
