(Physician)…Geneticist Collins follows on from his…(earlier bestseller)…in which he reconciled his scientific knwoledge with his Christian faith, joining with physicist Giberson to answer questions about Charles Darwin, evolution, and the age of Earth and the Universe. Pointing out that the Bible is not a scientific text, they aim to satisfy the spirtual mainstream while challenging atheists and creationists.” If you were interested in this book, you might also read his earlier NY Times Bestseller, The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief (2006).
