The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief
Beautiful book, easy to understand language.
This 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.

A wonderful new look at how God created us
As 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.

At 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"!

I 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.)
