The New Cosmic Story

In his book The New Cosmic Story, Georgetown research professor John Haught addresses two primary questions: what does the arrival of religion tell us about the universe, and what does our understanding of the cosmos as an unfinished drama tell us about religion? The history of religion may be ambiguous and sometimes even barbarous, he asserts, but its role in the story of cosmic emergence and awakening must be taken into account.

Here,’s Robert Wright interviews Haught about the book, its ideas, and what it means to say that “God is more Omega than Alpha.”
