Book Review, By Danie Mouton
Dr Francis Collins is the former head of the Human Genome Project and is one of the world’s leading scientists. His work represents the most advanced study of DNA, the code of life. He is also a man of faith.
Collins believes that faith in God and scientific knowledge are not mutually exclusive, but indeed are in harmony. In his book, The Language of God, he advances a case for God and for science. He knows every scientific argument against religion, and he has an answer for each one. He also knows the arguments that believers use to reject scientific findings, and he responds meaningfully to them.
In The Language of God, he tells of his own journey from atheism to faith, and then he takes readers on a powerful journey in which he explains how physics, chemistry and biology fit in with belief in God.
The Language of God is essential reading for all who ponder over the deepest questions of our faith. Why are we here? How did we get here? What is the meaning of life?
