John F. HaughtEven beyond the world of physics Albert Einstein's ideas and opinions command our attention, simply by virtue of the powerful mind that generated them. And so it is more than idle curiosity to want to know what he thought about issues of great importance to his fellow humans. Not least among these, of course, is the question of God. Was Einstein really an atheist, or did he believe in God? What kind of God? Was he perhaps a mystic? If the world is grounded in a transcending "intelligence," as Einstein thought, how does this make him different from a classical theist? Einstein's theological pronouncements have probably generated as much commentary as his skeptical appraisal of quantum indeterminacy. But Max Jammer, a professor of physics emeritus at Bar-Ilan University in Israel, illuminates Einstein's enigmatic relationship to religion with a clarity and detail that no previous study can equal.
