A concious cosmos

Review “A magnificient and masterfully argued presentation of why randomness can never explain the great mystery of life on earth.  This wonderfully accessible book is a must read for anyone who, much like Einstein and other pioneers of the new physics did, experiences a feeling of utter humility when contemplating the grandeur of the cosmos.” -- P. Murali Doraiswamy, Professor of Psychiatry and Member, Duke Institute for Brain Sciences 

"The most transformative discoveries begin with delusion, are challenged by insight, driven by faith, pursued with science, and culminate in truth. Deepak Chopra beautifully makes the case that the biggest delusion is a universe without God or consciousness." -- Rudy Tanzi, co-author of The New York Times Bestseller Super Brain"Being a nuclear physicist dealing with basic quantum field theory I find my worldview agreeing with Deepak Chopra. The all-embracing holistic quantum field is a step forward from our classical reductionistic interpretation of a determined "reality". It suggests a dynamic, alive cosmos or "Wirklichkeit". Dr Chopra's work will be talked about for a long time to come.” -- Hans Peter Duerr, Scientific Member and Director Emeritus Max Planck Institute for Physics and Astrophysics

"At a time when the revolutions of the physical sciences are changing our understanding the human consciousness, Saving Faith is a book that needed to be written and no one could have written it better than Deepak Chopra. In this brilliant analysis, Chopra shows how God is evolving with our consciousness, and how both, the religious and atheistic fundamentalists are focused on an outdated God. This book is a treasure of deep insights which will not only touch your heart but will also lead you to understand how a God without illusions is a necessary condition for your physical well being." -- Lothar Schäfer, distinguished professor of physical chemistry (emeritus) at the University of Arkansas and author of Infinite PotentialIn Saving Faith, Deepak Chopra crisply dissects the militant atheist's assertion that there is no meaning or purpose to life, and no need for faith in an accidental universe. He lays bare the belief vs. disbelief controversy and provides sound reasons why it is both possible and necessary to mature beyond the simplistic dogmas that have sustained a timeworn and increasingly futile debate. – Dean Radin, Ph.D., author of The Conscious Universe and SupernormalDeepak Chopra has successfully blended ancient Vedanta Philosophy with his unique perspective on modern science to provide a vast audience with solutions that meet many needs for our modern age. He is among the influential scholars, authors, and thinkers who have found truth in the Perennial Philosophy and developed ways to help people apply that truth to their daily lives. -- Huston Smith, author of Why Religion Matters: The Faith of the Human Spirit in an Age of Disbelief
