Author Event: Brett Hayward at East-West Books

If you’re in the Seattle area next week, be sure to attend Brett Hayward’s author event at East-West Books, as he presents his new book, Existence: Science, Spirituality & the Spaces Between. The event takes place on Wednesday, Jan. 29 at 7pm, and is free with no registration required. You can find out more by clicking here!

… an insightful, clearly written work that blends philosophy, evolutionary theory, cell biology and physics with intelligent design, biblical viewpoints and spiritual concepts.
Hayward’s ability to dive deeply into both pools, and to find the streams between them, makes Existence into a thought-provoking, valuable work — not just on science and spirituality but also for broadening the investigation of intersections between them.
