Collins's faith in God has been confirmed and enhanced by the revolutionary discoveries in biology that he has helped to oversee. He has absorbed the arguments for atheism of many scientists and pundits, and he can refute them. Darwinian evolution occurs, yet, as he explains, it cannot fully explain human nature -- evolution can and must be directed by God. He offers an inspiring tour of the human genome to show the miraculous nature of God's instruction book. Sure to be compared with C.S. Lewis's Mere Christianity, this is a stunning document, whether you are a believer, a seeker, or an atheist.
-- Archbishop Desmond Tutu
"The world respects Francis as a brilliant scientist responsible for breakthrough discoveries benefiting mankind. For a decade I have been privileged to admire him as a devoted family man and talented musician with a charmingly sharp wit. This intellectually honest, spiritually grounded reconciliation of God and science helps answer your greatest questions. I was profoundly enlightened and believe this important book should be required reading."
-- Naomi Judd
"Francis Collins, one of the world's most distinguished scientists, treats the relationship of science and religion with reason and reverence. Collins's mix of clear technical exposition and personal reflection is infused with an intellectual and spiritual honesty. Everyone who questions how religious faith could be reconciled with scientific knowledge, everyone who fears that modern science attacks the heart of religious faith, everyone interested in an enlightened discussion of a crucial issue of our time should read this book."
-- William D. Phillips, 1997 Nobel Laureate in Physics
"In today's world, scarred by cultural warfare, it is rare for a scientist to offer a testimony of faith in God. For that scientist to be one of the world's most renowned is rarer still. For his testimony to be so lucid and compelling, combining reason and revelation, science and spirit, is unheard of. The Language of God belongs on the shelf of every believer and every seeker."
-- Dr. Robert H. Schuller, Founding Pastor, the Crystal Cathedral
Corrado GhinamoItalyAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful book, easy to understand language.February 6, 2014Corrado GhinamoItalyAge: 35-44Gender: maleThis book shows -with an easy to understand language- how rational the belief in God can be.
Francis Collins is one of the greatest modern scientists in the world, and a Christian. So no surprise if he is absolutely convinced about theistic evolution.
As a scientist, I was so happy to read about a faith so similar to mine.

bobdNewbury Park, CAAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A wonderful new look at how God created usMarch 4, 2011bobdNewbury Park, CAAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5As science comes within our grasp we see more and more of the realities of how God created our world. This view, that God spoke but once, and all of creation was instantly set into motion, to unfold just as God intended, is a powerful new way to look at how God created his universe. We've always held that evolution demanded atheism. Collins shows us that this in not so, and that God is indeed the author of life, no matter how he chose unfold his story.
Austin McGinley5 Stars Out Of 5September 2, 2009Austin McGinleyAt age 78, and a former priest in the Dominican Order, I can honestly say that Dr. Collins' book is the most important book I have ever read. He has answered questions that have plagued me for many years. I have held fast to to the Thomistic principle," Ex nihilo, nihil fit". Yet, I could not comprehend how or why the First Unmoved Mover saw fit to create human beings on this infinitely tiny planet. Now, at least, I can fully accept "It was no accident"!
Jeff4 Stars Out Of 5August 14, 2009JeffI bought this book some months back and generally enjoyed it. Like one other reviewer, I also thought the book lacked a WoW factor. Maybe I expected too much from so eminent a scientist. Now that I see that others thought better of it, I might go back and read it again. The book is definitely worth reading, so don't take my reservation too seriously. I just hoped for a bit more. (By the way, I hold the same view of Mere Christianity, so Francis Collins is in very good company.)
Robert Cissne4 Stars Out Of 5June 19, 2009Robert CissneAbout halfway through it and didn't quite experience the WOW factor I was hoping for. Generally well done but still don't know where ground zero is for the BIG BAMG. Suppose we have to have multiple viewing points to learn that as well as a kazillion years.
