What People are Saying About This

Greg Peterson

Three Big Bangs takes us on the grand tour, from cosmic origins to the significance of the human spirit. Through it all, Rolston is a reliable guide, revealing both the marvel and the mystery behind our biological and cosmic history and taking on both the critics of religion and the critics of science. Rolston's encyclopedic knowledge and poetic deftness continues to amaze me.

Donald W. Shriver Jr.

Rolston relates disparate perspectives on the nature of the universe that most scholars are content to leave unrelated. He infuses his book with scientific sources and a rich summation of what the specialists say about the history of the universe.
