David Williams takes a humorous and helpful look at the intersection of faith and science in his book THE BELIEVER'S GUIDE TO THE MULTIVERSE. The book is an exploration of some of the findings in quantum mechanics that point to the possibility of many parallel universes running alongside our own. Rather than seeing this as an evidence against the existence of God, Williams sees this as a glaring evidence for an all-powerful Creator.

Williams spends some time explaining what the multiverse is, and then he very compellingly shows how the existence of the multiverse could possibly solve many of the tensions we find in the Bible, such as the tension between human responsibility and divine sovereignty. The book gets a bit technical in places, but the style it is written in makes it a very refreshing read.

I don't know that I believe that there is a multiverse, nor do I agree with all the conclusions he makes, but this book definitely presents a lot for me to think about. I also like the multiple conclusions at the end geared toward the different readers who might read this book.
