    Story

    Dr. Francis Collins, head of the Human Genome Project, is one of the world's leading scientists, yet he is also a man of unshakable faith in God and scripture. Dr. Collins has resolved the dilemma that haunts everyone who believes in God and respects science. Faith in God and faith in science can be harmonious, not separately but together, combined into one worldview. For Collins, science does not conflict with the Bible, science enhances it.

    Stephen says: "For those on the fence"
    "Skeptics can share this with believers"
    Overall

    I'm not a traditional theist by any means, but this presentation by a Christian believer who is also a world-rank scientist (the author headed the public Human Genome Project) deserves reading/listening by anyone fustrated by the harmful "culture wars" put on by extremists of both sides.

    Francis Collins presents his case for belief with an accessible presentation of how science is no threat to those willing to go beyond a literalist view of religion. As a Christian, he also does not go into a mere polemic for only Christianity, he is open to all forms of belief in God. For Collins, theism is a mature position to take, and that one can be of a scientific viewpoint and still respect religion.

    For this Humanist, a good case for faith, and a good book to suggest to religious people who have a hard time with biological evolution and current scientific cosmology.
