The Heavens Declare the Glory of God Jun 29, 2007
By T. Siconolfi
'From the very first time our High School physics professor Father Richard Vail talked about Einstein and his theory of Relativity, I was captivated. Describing to us how time and the mass of an object change as it aproaches the speed of light, intrigued me.
He addressed the Big Bang Theory and introduced us to Einstein's Grand Unified Theory of Force. From that theory scientists could trace the origins of the universe back to the first one, one hundredth second of time, when all the forces of nature were one, the electromagnetic force and the strong and weak forces of molecular structure. Such ideas blew our minds and opened up a vision of an astonishing universe.
We also talked about how all truth came from God. Good science and good religion would always be compatible, since they both came from the same Creator. At times there had been and still would be mistaken ideas about the universe, but truth, whether scientific or religious, would be revealed, as God reveals himself. (Peekabooo God)
Those were exhilarating days. Now-a-days some writers either denounced science as false, and even diabolical, or shout down religion, as superstitious and insidious. Reading Dan Dwyer's book, Peekaboo God, gives a balanced view of both science and religion. It is up to date on new scientific findings. Once again I find myself filled with the wonder of this world. His book is clear and relentless in his convictions. From his own experience of the frailty of the body, he comes to the strength of faith in the presence of God. This writing will literally inspire (breathe life in) those who read it. Very Rev. [...].
A new look at God in today's world Jul 12, 2007
From an overview of the complexity of human existence in relation to oneself, to others and to the world in which we live, Daniel Dwyer seeks to show that personal fulfillment and peace can come only when we accept that faith in an existing spirit world completes us and defeats human loneliness. Time and eternity, chance and discipline, the existence of God and rationalist philosophies are discussed alongside the writings of earlier philosophers and theologians. Peekaboo God directly challenges modern sceptical writers. Free will, altruism, and 21st century concepts of good and evil are seen as part of the construct of democracy and politics. This is the most interesting book I have read in a long time. How many authors today can talk about religion and philosophy in a way which is so engaging and easy to read?
To the Threshold of the Almighty Jul 15, 2007
By Jeffrey Thomas
For as long as I can remember I've believed what I've heard and read that science will never be able to prove the existence of God. But Dan Dwyer, in his just-published Peekaboo God, takes you on a journey to the threshold of the Almighty that you won't soon forget. If you're interested in evolution, language development, the Universe, philosophy and religion, you'll find Peekaboo God a fascinating layman's review of the scientific evidence that will leave you asking and searching for more. Prepare yourself for an education and an adventure.

What a wonderful surprise Jun 20, 2007
By James A. Reilly
This is a book that you will want to read more than once. Full of insights that you never find in our current literature. Dwyer has combined the fields of science, philosophy and religion into a structured path leading to finding ourselves and our God. An intellectual guide for the post-modern society, it should be read by anyone who has become confused by all the fabrications put out by the secular anti-God crowd.
Peekaboo God More Than a Peek May 24, 2007
By Vincent M. Cooney
To those who believe and have become complacent, he will put a bite to your convictions and help energize your faith. To those who do not believe he will cause you to reconsider your position. To all, believer or not, it is a great read.
