From Science to God offers a crash course in the nature of reality. It is the story of Peter Russell's lifelong exploration into the nature of consciousness — how he went from being a strict atheist, studying mathematics and physics at Cambridge University, to realizing a profound personal synthesis of the mystical and scientific. Using his own tale of curiosity and exploration as the book’s backbone, Russell blends physics, psychology, and philosophy to reach a new worldview in which consciousness is a fundamental quality of creation. He shows how all the ingredients for this worldview are in place; nothing new needs to be discovered. We have only to put the pieces together and explore the new picture of reality that emerges.

From Science to God is as much a personal story of an open-minded skeptic as it is a tour de force of scientific and religious paradigm shifts. Russell takes us from Galileo’s den to the lecture halls of Cambridge where he studied with Stephen Hawking. “If you had asked me then if there was a God,” says the best-selling author of his scientific beginnings, “I would have pointed to mathematics.” But no matter what empirical truths science offered Russell, one thorny question remained: How can something as immaterial as consciousness, ever arise from something as unconscious as matter?

Integrating a deep knowledge of science with his own experiences of meditation, Russell arrives at a universe similar to that described by many mystics — one in which science and spirit no longer conflict. The bridge between them, he shows, is light. From Science to God invites us to cross that bridge to a radically different, and ultimately healing, view of ourselves and the universe — one in which God takes on new meaning, and spiritual practice a deeper significance.


“A record of a courageous traveler who has gained great wisdom.”
— Larry Dossey, M.D.

“Profoundly insightful from both a theoretical and personal perspective. A story of the development of Western thought on the one hand and of a very thoughtful individual’s personal struggles to reconcile his love and respect for science with his growing spiritual awakening. Far more than most other books on the subject, From Science to God identifies a possible basis for true reconciliation between science and spirituality.”
— Winston Franklin, president of The Institute of Noetic Sciences

“The best book Peter Russell’s ever written.”
— Hazel Henderson, author of Beyond Globalization

“Truly engaging, accessible, and a pleasure to read.”
— Roger Housden, author of Ten Poems to Change Your Life and Chasing Rumi

“As usual Peter Russell has brought the highly complex into the divinely simple and helped us make the transition from the materialistic view of nature to the illumination of the true nature of reality.”
— Barbara Marx Hubbard, author of Conscious Evolution

“Peter Russell tells us a new story about the meaning of consciousness, shows us a new cosmology, and leads us to touch the heart of the mystical experience by discovering God in consciousness and consciousness in God. From Science to God is a wonderful, readable, and transformational book.”
— Thom Hartmann, author of The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight

“A brilliant synthesis of the empirical and spiritual views of reality.”
— Harville Hendrix, author of Finding the Love You Want

“Absolutely marvelous.”
— Joseph Jaworski, author of Synchronicity: The Inner Path of Leadership
