Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Physics of Immortality A challenging and stimulating work, Frank Tipler's The Physics of Immortality seeks to make theology "a branch of physics". This book is full of intriguing and controversial speculations which pushes - and attempts to fuse - the envelopes of theology and quantum mechanics, in language accessible to the layperson. This book's admittedly far-fetched theological speculations have even given inspired a new science-fiction series by author Frederick Pohl (The Other End of Time/The Seige of Eternity).

From Our Editors

An expert in global relativity, through his model of the universal end-time (the Omega Point Theory), constructs a stunningly plausible argument for the existence of a universal resurrection, attempting to show that "through physics . . . it is possible, even likely for all of humanity to be resurrected" (Esquire)

Editorial Reviews

"A doozy of a book... it's 2001: A Space Odyssey meets The Divine Comedy." --Esquire. "A thrilling ride to the far edges of modern physics." -- New York Times Book Review. "A dazzling exercise in scientific speculation, as rigoroulsy argued as it is boldly conceived." -- The Wall Street Journal. "A book that proves the existence of the Almighty and inevitability of resurrection, without recourse to spiritual mumbo jumbo... Tipler does it all." --Mirabella.
