Francis Collins, the longtime director of the Human Genome Project and the current director of the National Institute of Health, is both a devoted follower of Christ and one of the world’s leading scientists.
In this book he describes his own fascinating journey from atheism to Christ, a journey in which C.S. Lewis’ writings played a major role.
He also argues that there is no inherent conflict between science and faith. He shows reasons from science for the existence of God. He looks specifically at the origin of life and explains problems in several worldviews, including atheism, agnosticism, young earth creationism and Intelligent Design. He then argues, quite cogently, that God used evolutionary processes to create humans.
This book will stretch you and challenge you and encourage you.
