Thinking about Creation : Eternal Torah and Modern Physics
Six days or fifteen billion years? At first glance, the biblical and scientific accounts of the creation of the universe seem quite different. How then can there be modern twentieth century people who respect the methods and conclusions of science, yet take the Bible to be literally correct? The answer is given in this book. Dr. Andrew Goldfinger is a physicist by profession and a chasidic Jew by commitment. He takes the reader through the story of creation from both viewpoints.

Dr. Goldfinger carries us through the genesis of our existence, from the beginning to the present, in a way that captures his excitement at the wonder of creation. As a trained scientist, he is able to turn the mystery of the universe into a fruitful search for the 'why' of our being that underlies the physical reality we see around us in our daily lives. -- Gerald Schroeder, author of Genesis And The Big Bang and The Science of God
