Special Lecture

Author, Speaker, Astrophysicist

Sunday, February 19th, 6pm

Praise for the book:

“[the authors] take you on a tour of the Cosmos in all of its glory, and all its mystery. You will see that humanity appears to be part of a remarkable set of circumstances involving a special time around a special planet, which orbits a special star, all within a specially constructed Universe” – Brian Schmidt, Nobel Laureate in Physics (2011)

“[a Fortunate Universe] is the most up-to-date, accurate, and comprehensive explication of the evidence that Universe is fine-tuned for life. It is also among the two most philosophically sophisticated treatments, all the while being accessible to a non-academic audience” – Robin Collins, Messiah College

And here’s a recent review in the Wall Street Journal.
