In this book, the renowned physicist, author and – since 1972 – also priest, Bernhard Philberth, talks about his life. He gives a candid account of his mystical experiences, his discoveries and inventions, his extraordinary path to the priesthood, his family, his public engagements and much more.

The book also contains some contributions by his brother, Prof. Dr. Karl Philberth, about Bernhard himself and his concepts in physics. There is also a chapter on the PH Foundation, which he established for the education of poor Philippine students and financed together with his brother Karl. The book also features a few brief testimonies by Philberth scholars.

Bernhard Philberth’s experiences and thoughts, written down by Waltraud Uhlenbruch, reveal how a man of genius and deep faith allows himself to be inspired and guided by God throughout his life.

Short Reviews

I have known Fr. Bernhard Philberth for about 20 years and I had my reservations about him. I was utterly amazed to find a mystic, a very humble person, a man used by providence to play an important role in world history. Thank you for making him known to me and the world.

Father Wim Valckx, SVD

Congratulations! You have succeeded brilliantly in bringing Fr. Bernhard Philberth back to life. By letting him speak for himself, you allow the readers to hear him, just as we remember him, full of enthusiasm and optimism, larger than life as he always was. My late husband, Dr. Eduard von Perger, lecturer in philosophy, was greatly impressed by Bernhard Philberth’s thoughts and writings.

Margaret von Perger, Bachelor of Arts (Hons)

Thank you so much for the copy of the book “Bernhard Philberth – Recollections and Thoughts”. As I read it, I experienced joy as if once again being present at one of Fr. Bernhard’s interesting enlightening conversations (which always held the gift of his wisdom and humour)! It is as if he were speaking to us and teaching us once again…

Christine Reynolds, Bachelor of Arts

I knew from my brief dealings with Fr. Bernhard Philberth that he was a man of knowledge but I had no idea of the depth and breadth of his scholarship. A truly amazing person and society was blessed by his presence.

translation : Sergej M. Zverev

The absolute Truths of the Christian faith have been taught by the Church for two thousand years. They are not based on human wisdom and do not depend on changing human knowledge. And yet they always have to be proclaimed in a language which is comprehensible to the thinking of the time. Thus theological interpretations relevant at specific times keep being reassessed. The contemporary spirit is shaped by scientific knowledge. However, truly progressive scientific thinking preserves and confirms the traditional truth.

Setting out from “the REVELATION to John”, the Apokalypse, a renowned scientist shows that it is precisely the new thinking in science which reveals a vision of the truths of Christian faith and the teaching of the Church of unexpected richness. New interpretations of the old teaching are suggested. New interpretations have always been necessary and have always brought grave crises, from Thomas Aquinas, Giordano Bruno, Galileo Galilei, Friedrich Wöhler and others, up to this day. Coming to terms with change has always taken years, even centuries. Each time these dramatic conflicts led to the understanding of the truths on a higher level. With the current very high standard of science this is the case to an extent never before imagined.

The new understanding of timeless truths sometimes needs to be expressed in unusual, even odd terms. This must not be a reason to leave the interpretation of new scientific knowledge to ideologues. The Church is called and enabled to proclaim the divine truth unabridged.

There is one truth that unites faith and knowledge.

Short Reviews

Bernhard Philberth writes with the competence of the scientist and the fervour of a believing Christian, and with his enthusiasm carries others along.

Auxiliary Bishop Dr. Hans-Jochen Jaschke
Episcopal vicar for Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein

The author Bernhard Philberth attempts to articulate the Christian faith in the language of a world that is characterized by science and technology. By doing so, he makes faith comprehensible without wanting to enforce it. That is an important task in this day and age.

Lajos Kada
Apostolic Nuncio in Germany

The book “Revelation” is an important attempt to pass on the truth of Christian faith in a language that makes sense to the present, scientifically aware, generation. It is very well suited to bringing about a learning process. Scientists learn that faith does not contradict their understanding of the world, but widens it to encompass the fullness of existence. Theologians learn to interpret and formulate God's “revelation”' with contemporary men and women in mind.

Book Reviews

[...] The basic concepts of the physics considered, are very unusual and differ from standard thinking in physics. However, it seems that the whole concept does not contradict any physical knowledge and it is a different basis for entire quantities of physics, which may lead to an alternative and possibly better formulation of some of our physical concepts.

Spanish translation, 1962

This very soundly based book has challenged and shocked public opinion. Its logic and the boundless amazement about the prophecies of the Bible, which could not be verified until now, capture the reader's attention. Philberth, being an expert in his field, was destined to handle with great competence the challenge of this book from a literary point of view.

Confronts point by point the facts of nuclear research and military technology with the prophecies of Christ and St. John. Philberth is the first to succeed in partly deciphering the Apocalypse.

Philberth […] who informed our generation, the generation of the atomic age, in simple and clear language of the decisive facts of nuclear power and of the prophetic call of the Book of Revelation […]
