A graduate of the UNC Medical School, Francis Collins is a geneticist, and head of the Human Genome Project. As a scientist and a Christian he presents his views on the perceived chiasm between faith and science as it relates to evolution. This book will be of great interest to readers with a science background, especially those in biological sciences.



Preview The Language of God



Collins begins by describing his own experience as a young doctor who did not believe in God until prompted by a patient, to make his own investigation into the facts. This began a long road of inquiry into all world religions including Christianity. His faith walk to becoming a Christian will be found a similar path many of us have taken. And it will motivate those interested in whether there truly is a God, who is he, and to use their scientific training to seek out the truth.

Collins includes chapters on the origin of the universe, the origin of life, and the DNA language of the cell he has spent his life investigating. While not all theologians and scientists agree with him, Collins uses his knowledge and illustrations from the human genome, to illustrate that "Faith in Science, Faith in God" are not mutually exclusive but complimentary.  He briefly discusses atheism, agnosticism, creationism, and intelligent design. He argues they cause disharmony between science and faith. He coins the term Biologos to represent the coming together of the two. He concludes with a chapter on bioethics and the challenges before us as we understand more of the Language of God. The book is well written, not so technical that the non-scientist would not understand, and has good notes and resources referenced for further reading.
