Language of God by Francis Collins

Book Description

Does science necessarily undermine faith in God? Or could it actually support faith? Beyond the flashpoint debates over the teaching of evolution, or stem-cell research, most of us struggle with contradictions concerning life's ultimate question. We know that accidents happen, but we believe we are on earth for a reason. Until now, most scientists have argued that science and faith occupy distinct arenas. Francis Collins, a former atheist as a science student who converted to faith as he became a doctor, is about to change that. Collins's faith in God has been confirmed and enhanced by the revolutionary discoveries in biology that he has helped to oversee. He has absorbed the arguments for atheism of many scientists and pundits, and he can refute them. Darwinian evolution occurs, yet, as he explains, it cannot fully explain human nature -- evolution can and must be directed by God. He offers an inspiring tour of the human genome to show the miraculous nature of God's instruction book. Sure to be compared with C.S. Lewis's Mere Christianity, this is a stunning document, whether you are a believer, a seeker, or an atheist.

Book Review: Language of God by Francis Collins - Reviewed by (10 Feb 2014)

This book shows -with an easy to understand language- how rational the belief in God can be. Francis Collins is one of the greatest modern scientists in the world, and a Christian. So no surprise if he is absolutely convinced about theistic evolution. Dr. Francis Collins is one of the clearest voices in this topic, and he is able to use his great scientific experience and knowledge to gently distroy the typical atheistic preconceptions. As a scientist, I was so happy to read about a faith so similar to mine. Dr. Corrado Ghinamo (author of "The Beautiful Scientist: A Spiritual Approach to Science")
