Book of the Cosmos. Dennis Danielson, ed.

Danielson, a Milton scholar with a lifetime interest in cosmology (and, incidentally, head of the UBC English department and a Regent board member), has collected, and wisely introduced, the best writings in the Western world on the nature of the universe. He begins with the Bible and ends with contemporary cosmologists, mathematicians and physicists. The book (like those by Thomas and Collins) is full of the sense of wonder, discovery and awe that come from our human attempts to understand the surprising world we find ourselves in. This is a book to sample, not to master.
