Good technical approach... but that's about it,
This review is from: Creating Life in the Lab: How New Discoveries in Synthetic Biology Make a Case for the Creator (Reasons to Believe) (Paperback)
This is quite a technical book, so it might be best suited to those with a background in biochemistry - although the book contains an Appendix to help in this respect.
Essentially, the argument is the same throughout; perhaps best summarised by an extract from the book itself.... "While some scientists and others suggest the (anticipated) creation of artificial life makes the need for a Creator obsolete, I take the opposite view. As evidenced in both the top-down and bottom-up approaches, only by deliberate effort, inordinate ingenuity, and astonishing skill can synthetic biologists even begin the process of making artificial life. Their work empirically demonstrates that even the simplest life-form cannot arise without the involvement of an intelligent agent." (page 80-81).
It's a useful book within the whole creation/evolution debate, particularly for ID, but it is not necessarily an easy read - and doesn't help explain any creationist scenario (although it perhaps wasn't intending to).
