For those who are interested in scientific explanations of the Origins of the Cosmos, I would recommend Frank Levin's "Calibrating the Cosmos - How Cosmology Explains Our Big Bang Universe." The chapters get a bit dense in the latter half, but the first half is fairly easy reading and provides a wonderful layman's explanation of cosmology, relativity, and quantum physics.
There's also Lawrence Krauss' book, "A Universe From Nothing: Why There is Something Rather Than Nothing." I haven't yet read this one (it was just published this January), but it's on my list, and it's highly recommended. Richard Dawkins has written the Foreward.
