Here’s how my review of “Christ and the Multiverse” by David Williams begins . . . .
Can you recall the moment in “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” when Lucy enters the wardrobe? She expects to touch the back wall so she goes “further in” and finds herself in a world called Narnia, where beavers talk, the White Witch rules over endless winter and Aslan, the not-tame lion, is the true king.
In his new book, David Williams uses C.S. Lewis’ metaphor of “further in” to explore the possibility that multiple universes exist. While we’ve all become used to fictional multiverses (thanks to exercises of imagination such as overlapping narratives and multiple plotlines), multiverse theory is not simply fantasy, or fiction, or science fiction. It is science. Theoretical physics posits that multiple (or even an infinite number of) universes exist in parallel at the same time. This possibility exists because the space-time continuum is a construct of the human mind.

David Williams is a colleague — both as an author and as a pastor. More than that, he is my successor at the small church I served for a decade, which is a special connection. I am always grateful for him, his insights, and his generally irreverent approach to life.
