Publisher's Write-Up

Science and religion have two seemingly opposing views of the universe’s biggest questions. But what if the real story told you they were both right?

Vancouver, 2009. Physics engineer and CEO Daniel Friedmann loves solving problems. When the avid scientist dives deep into scripture, he’s faced with questions he feels compelled to answer: Is it possible to harmonise the scientific timeline for the development of the universe with the biblical timeline described in Genesis 1? How do the evolution of human history and prophecies surrounding the End of Days fit in?

His quest for answers takes him and his nephew Seb on an incredible journey through the ages, discovering the lives and works of mystics, prophets, sages, philosophers, scientists and biblical commentators.

Follow Dan and Seb as they discover answers to some of the biggest questions in science and religion, including:
- Does the six-day creation account actually link with science’s 13.8 billion-year timeline?
- How do world history, Genesis, and the End of Days fit within the context of God’s Plan in heaven?
- How can the appearance of life on Earth, as depicted by the fossil record, match the sequence and timing of life on Earth described in Genesis 1?
- Do Genesis and the evolution of human history reveal the events and timing for the End of Days?
- Are there texts predating modern science that describe the Big Bang and contain the scientifically calculated age of the universe?
- And finally, is there a secret harmony resolving the creation-versus-evolution debate?

The Biblical Clock is a fascinating and entertaining read, digging deep into the universe and solving its well-kept mysteries.

For many years, it has seemed like science and religion see the world in totally different ways. This book attempts to reconcile those differences.

Did God create the world in one week or do biblical ‘days’ last for thousands of years? Are the End Times coming in the foreseeable future? Those are the sort of questions explored by this book.

This is a lot different from (and much better than) the average science/religion book because it profiles those who thought about such questions throughout history. In 11th century France, Rabbi Shlomo Yitzchaki would sit in the back of the room at the Torah Seminary. If a concept wasn't understood by the students, like the phrase ‘it was good’ from Genesis, he would think about it, and consult his own books. Writing up a clearer explanation of the not-understood concept on parchment, he would secretly insert it in the teacher's book. The next day, when the piece of parchment was found, Rabbi Yitzchaki made sure that he was in the room, but acted like he wasn't listening. Included in this book is a possible near-future scenario for the coming of the End Times.

This is a very interesting book. Those who are not religious might have a hard time with it. For everyone else, any book that can bring science and religion closer together, if not totally reconciled, is a good thing. It will take some effort on the part of the reader, but it is a first-rate piece of writing. It easily gets four stars, if not four-and-a-half stars.
