Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Our problem with God, according to physicist Gerald L, Schroeder, is that we're trying to force him to stand still. According to this MIT-trained scientist, the ruling deity of the cosmos is a living, changing God. Dr. Schroeder uses biblical interpretation and scientific analysis to argue that, like us, God assimilates new information, experiences regret, and wants us to argue with him and gradually become his partner in creation. Schroeder's unique view represents a radical paradigm shift in the ongoing debates between science and religion.
Huston Smith
“This is as important a book on this subject as I recall ever having read.”
Rabbi - Heschel Weiner
"Schroeder’s insights help explore mankind’s relationship with God in an entirely new and thought-provoking manner."
David J. Wolpe
“A brilliant mix of ancient exegesis and modern science that will convince some and infuriate others. Schroeder’s book demands the attention of anyone who wonders if God must be exiled from the modern, enlightened mind.”
Charles H. Townes
“A remarkable book. The science as well as the meaning of this universe and of life are discussed with insight, rigor, and depth along with a perceptive, challenging and scholarly view of the Old Testament. Great for a thoughtful reader!”
Shlomo Riskin
“God According to God is crucially important reading …I found this book a ringing confirmation of my deepest feelings about the Living God of history.”
Simcha Jacobovici
“Gerry Schroeder is one of a kind. Not only does he have a complete command of science but a complete command of the Biblical texts. As a result, he takes viewers on a fantastic journey that is both fun and extremely profound.”
James D. Tabor
"No one can read this book and ever think of God or how our world operates in the same way again. Schroeder has the rare ability to present complex matters, whether theological or scientific, in an engaging and understandable way. A must read."
Rabbi - David Lapin
"Full of paradox, existential tensions, and spiritual and intellectual epiphany, the book is another gift to humanity from a scientist who is also a great man, a deep thinker, a spiritual counselor and a wonderful teacher."
Rabbi Heschel Weiner
“Schroeder’s insights help explore mankind’s relationship with God in an entirely new and thought-provoking manner.”
Prof. James D. Tabor
“No one can read this book and ever think of God or how our world operates in the same way again. Schroeder has the rare ability to present complex matters, whether theological or scientific, in an engaging and understandable way. A must read.”
Rabbi David Lapin
“Full of paradox, existential tensions, and spiritual and intellectual epiphany, the book is another gift to humanity from a scientist who is also a great man, a deep thinker, a spiritual counselor and a wonderful teacher.”
Jerusalem Post
“A remarkable tour de force, combining science, theology and biblical exegesis in a most compelling and significant way, casting a new light on how we view God and our own place within the world.”
Jewish Book World
“[Schroeder] has written an intriguing book that will stimulate thinking about the world, God, and Judaism.”
Jerusalem Post
“A remarkable tour de force, combining science, theology and biblical exegesis in a most compelling and significant way, casting a new light on how we view God and our own place within the world.”
