Einstein in the Attic by Dana Dargos & Said Al Bizri
A search for truth by those that transcend time.
Set against the backdrop of the war between science and God, reason and faith, Einstein in the Attic is the story of one scientist’s search for truth and meaning when faced with the ultimate question: Is there a God? Fleeing war-torn Lebanon, Adam Reemi’s faith is shaken by the hardships he has endured, but when he and a colleague successfully construct a nano hadron collider, and using sound waves, Adam finds unheard-of power at his fingertips. To help him answer the greatest question mankind has ever posed, he zaps the best philosophical minds of all time–namely Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, Soren Kierkegaard, and Baruch Spinoza–from the past and into his attic. Not all goes according to plan, however, and Adam finds himself in a race against time to formulate an answer to the question of intelligent design… or risk losing everything.
Einstein in the Attic has won the Literary Titan Award, Firebird Book Award, Maincrest Media Book Award, Best Book Award Finalist by The American Book Fest, and THREE honourable mentions at the prestigious New York, Hollywood, and San Francisco Book Festivals, so far and counting.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
Einstein in the Attic is a fresh, unique look into the age-old question... is there a God?
I love that we join the journey at the time when Adam Reemi first begins to question if there is a God when he is just a child. Obviously, questioning faith as a child isn't ideal, you should be living in a safe bubble of love and faith. Dana Dargos and Said Al Bizri show that love isn't an issue with Adam's faith but the circumstances in which he grows up in Lebanon.
The writing is thoughtful, insightful and the perfect mix of faith and science. Definitely a fresh look into things that is well written with just the right level of detail.
A perfect book club read as there's plenty to discuss. If however you're reading this for yourself clear your day and prepare to question and journey with Adam.
