Author Howard Barry Schatz, a computer specialist, classically trained composer, and music theorist, has spent the last 40 years deciphering the riddles within monotheism’s oldest and most mysterious sacred text, the Sefer Yetzirah (Book of Creation). These are the only writings attributed to the great patriarch Abraham by the Orthodox Jewish community, and within that community they are the seminal writings on monotheism and Kabbalah. In his new book, The Science of Religion: A Framework for Peace, the author has uncovered an important mathematical table within Abraham’s text that can best be described as the Rosetta Stone for Scripture.  When this table is interpreted as music theory, Abraham defines monotheism’s God in terms of a harmonic series. This interpretation reveals how 10 vibrations uttered by the “Voice of God” descend into matter to become the inner vibrational essence and substance of God and Creation, of the 10 Commandments, the 10 Plagues, the 10 generations from Adam to Noah, and the 10 generations from Noah to Abraham. This long lost “Blueprint of Creation” is encrypted within the Holiest Name of God, Yahweh. Freemasons believe that this Blueprint of Creation was once understood by mankind not just for the purpose of understanding how to construct sacred edifices like Solomon’s Temple and Saint Peter’s Cathedral, but for civilization to embrace God’s Intelligent Design. Armed with an understanding of this mathematical Blueprint, the author takes us on a journey through time as he rediscovers the cradle of religion and science that has always eluded scholars. The author provides evidence that harmonic string theory is the language of God that will prove to be the “theory of everything” for both religion and science. Rediscovering the science of religion opens the door to a profound global conversation powerful enough to tear down the walls of dogmatic fundamentalism that separate today’s major religions. The world has been waiting for objective, generalized truths about God to which all can subscribe. The nature of truth is such that reconciliation will be the inevitable hallmark that heralds the Bible’s promise of peace for a New Jerusalem.

Metaphysics deals with the energies that underlie and drive the world that we live in. These energies respond to what we think, say and do, which helps to create the circumstances of our lives. There is no thought, word, or deed that the Universe does not respond to and so it behooves us to learn more about these energies and learn to use them consciously. Unfortunately, most of us are unaware of these energies and how the use or abuse of them affects our daily lives, and so we use them unconsciously and haphazardly. Conscious and positive use of these energies will eventually lead to happier, healthier, and more fruitful lives, filled with purpose and direction.


Here is the dawn of a new age in Bible scholarship. With the breath-taking vision of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam as three inter-related faces of the same monotheism, Howard Schatz dares to return to the mystical roots of orthodox religion, and to read the Bible with the assumptions of its original authors. In prose that is always clear, often beautiful, and eminently quotable, and with a numerology carefully explained to uncover the science behind traditional Kabbalism, Schatz employs his own comfortable grasp of modern science to do justice to our common ancestors.

“This is a clearly written dissertation that is MUST reading for anyone who has ever sought meaning in 'spiritual fulfillment.' The depth of understanding that Schatz displays in this book is nothing short of brilliant.”

Howard Schatz’s recent book The Lost Word of God (New York , 2007) is a welcome contribution to the literature on the ancient Pythagorean tradition. Its special value lies in emphasizing the role of Jewish sources, primarily the book Jezirah, which shed a fresh light on timeless issues.
