John Farrell’s lively and concise biography of Lemaitre includes a history of the theories of the origin on the universe...The Day without Yesterday is a significant contribution to the history of science.

Perhaps more important, they will understand how a person who was at the top of his profession in science and had a distinguished career within a traditional religious structure could reconcile these two ways of perceiving the universe.Very gratifying!
