Mackie5 Stars Out Of 5MackieFebruary 1, 2015MackieQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is an excellent book! I give this one to those people who think that "science" is God. Francis Collins went from being an atheist to being a believer because of what he learned as a scientist. My entire education from high school through college has been the study of science and that has always strengthened my belief in God not reduced it. Francis Collins explains how this same thing happened to him but his expertise as a famous scientist carries much more weigh than does mine.
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.)
