For a geneticist as renowned as Francis Collins to write a book as accessible to the non-scientist as this one is a great achievement in itself. But the particular advantage of this book over many others of the genre, is the seriousness with with it treats the biblical considerations and concerns of Christians who are keen to understand the scientific explanations of life - but not at the cost of compromising their faith. This is particularly delicate in the US, where young-earth, old-earth, and other types of creationists still vie with evolution (both theistic and atheistic) in an ongoing battle for cultural dominance. In the UK, the battle is mainly over, but the casualties are the many who have lost their faith or turned their back on science because of a perception of irreconcilability. This book, in a respectful, careful, yet lucid way, works over well-worn ground with fresh insights, and gives evidence and hope that the Bible and science can (and perhaps must) be reconciled after all. It is often a matter of interpretation - both biblically and scientifically - rather than core content, that lies at the root of much disagreement. Giberson and Collins understand and elucidate this brilliantly.

As a devout born-again Christian I am somewhat confused by the myriad of voices clamouring for attention on this subject. This really is the first book that, to my mind, makes complete impartial sense without being at all 'sensationalist' or trying to exaggerate the facts to make them fit a certain point of view.

It really is written with a high level of thought process and consideration for the reader so as to make a potentially very confusing subject quite clear for any reader to follow who has an interest in this topic.

Enjoy!

I had been asked to read a book, Before the Dawn, concerning the evolution of mankind and the spread of homo sapiens out of Africa into the rest of the world. It was a fascinating read but it caused me to ask myself some difficult questions regarding my understanding of God's role in creation and His relationship with mankind. It also prompted me to delve a little deeper. Of course there are many books on this subject but for the most part they tend to adopt extreme positions. Then I found this book co-authored by Francis S Collins who was the leader of the Human Genome Project. This is a book written by an eminent scientist who has a strong Christian faith. As you might expect it is a well-reasoned explanation of the relationship between the scientific understanding of human evolution and the Christian standpoint. I would recommend it to any Christian who finds him- or herself having to confront the difficult questions of science and faith.
