The authors examine recent astronomical findings and developments in theoretical cosmology in order to better understand three broad questions: Was the Universe Created? Is the Cosmos Designed? Are We Alone? These questions are addressed by a broad spectrum of experts, including astronomers, cosmologists, philosophers, and religious scholars who examine them in terms of humanity's place within the universe.
