Over the past two centuries, scientific advances have made it clear that the universe is a story still unfolding, and here John Haught considers the deeper implications of this discovery. Arguing that Stephen Hawking and Richard Dawkins have overlooked a crucial aspect of mankind, Haught addresses two primary questions: what does the arrival of the religious impulse tell us about humankind, and what does our understanding of the cosmos as an unfinished drama tell us about religion? Admitting that the history of religion can be ambiguous and sometimes even barbarous, Haught asserts that its role in the story of cosmic emergence and awakening must be taken into account.
