Fazale Rana, a chemist concerned with demonstrating design in nature, focuses his attention on the remarkable cell. But rather than a simple refutation of secular evolutionist's failure to produce a reason for the cell's functionality, Rana draws out the cell's unique witness to the Creator. This scholarly work tends toward progressive creationism, thus taking supposed evolutionary evidence into account to explain ultimate design despite seeming imperfections in said design.

Armed with cutting-edge techniques, biochemists have unwittingly uncovered startling molecular features inside the cell that compel only one possible conclusion--a supernatural agent must be responsible for life. Destined to be a landmark apologetic work, The Cell's Design explores the full scientific and theological impact of these discoveries. Instead of focusing on the inability of natural processes to generate life's chemical systems (as nearly all apologetics works do), Fazale Rana makes a positive case for life's supernatural basis by highlighting the many biochemical features that reflect the Creator's hallmark signature. This breakthrough work extends the case for design beyond irreducible complexity. These never-before-discussed evidences for design will evoke awe and amazement at God's creative majesty in the remarkable elegance of the cell's chemistry.
