Smith: Let There Be Light (2006)

letlight.jpgHoward Smith (an observant Jew and a research astrophysicist) wrote in a column at Newsday.com:
The mystical Jewish Kabbalists of 16th-century Israel developed a cosmology with striking similarities to that of modern science. […T]he Kabbalists weaved an intricate account of how the universe was created with light from an infinitesimal speck that evolved with light into today’s universe. […] Modern science offers us a deeper way to explicate scriptural symbolism.
I strongly suspect that his new book (published in October), “Let There Be Light: Modern Cosmology and Kabbalah, a New Conversation between Science and Religion” is an explication of the same idea.
