Dr. Jastrow is the manager of the Mount Wilson Observatory near Pasadena, California, which was the world’s largest telescope until the establishment of the 200-inch telescope on Mount Palomar. The strong philosophical premise of most cosmologists had been for a steady state universe, without beginning or end. Jastrow clearly and lucidly relates how Edwin Hubble and others proved that the universe had a beginning about 15 billion years ago. Jastrow (who professes to be an agnostic) writes, “Now we see how the astronomical evidence leads to a biblical view of the origin of the world.” This account of the immensity of the universe and the tremendous increase in scientific understanding of the nature of the universe is a captivating and dramatic story. The book demonstrates the harmony of Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” with current scientific understanding. Dr. Jastrow’s scientific credentials are impeccable. He also knows how to write for the layman. For those unfamiliar with current scientific cosmology – this is the place to begin. (The New York Times) Robert Jastrow ranks among the top writers of popular astornomy. (Publishers Weekly)ISBN 0-093-85006-4 Soft Cover / 149 pages
