The Hand of God: Thoughts and Images Reflecting the Spirit of the Universeby Michael Reagan (Editor), Sharon Begley (Introduction)
The Hand of God combines inspiration for the mind and spirit by juxtaposing majestic photographs of the cosmos next to illuminating words of scientists, poets, and theologians. It was once believed that to look into the heavens was to look into the face of God. The first Hubble telescope images from space, which appeared in 1990, confirmed that sentiment in ways beyond imagination. These eerily luminous landscapes, splendid with color and motion, gave us a glimpse into the outermost reaches of the universe—a vast, unexplored realm where spiraling galaxies cartwheeled, nebulae shimmered, and stars were born.
Throughout history, scientists and theologians, artists and writers, poets and philosophers have struggled eloquently to make sense of the universe and God’s part in it. Together the images in The Hand of God and the accompanying reflections encourage a sense of awe and, perhaps, purpose in an age often hostile to both.
