"More years ago than I care to reckon up, I met Richard Feynman." So begins THE LANGUAGE GOD TALKS, Herman Wouk's gem on navigating the divide between science and religion. In one rich, compact volume, Wouk draws on stories from his life as well as on key events from the 20th century to address the eternal questions of why we are here, what purpose faith serves, and how scientific fact fits into the picture. He relates wonderful conversations he's had with scientists such as Feynman, Murray Gell-Mann, Freeman Dyson, and Steven Weinberg, and brings to life such pivotal moments as the 1969 moon landing and the Challenger disaster.
About The Author:
Herman Wouk's acclaimed books include The Will to Live On, This Is My God, Pulitzer Prize winner The Caine Mutiny, The Winds of War, and War and Remembrance.

This was a very interesting read for me. Mainly because it is a departure from the genres that I would normally read. Books that combine technology, science and religion do not usually appeal to me but this one did. It was a relatively easy read, and though I was not familiar with a lot of the science-types mentioned in the book, I still came away from reading this book enlightened. If you would like to read a book that will take you on a journey of faith and science, then you must read this latest work by Wouk. This is the first I have read of his, but I enjoyed it enough to want to read more of his work.
I highly recommend this book and give it a thumbs up!
