Read in February, 2008

This book was interesting insofar as it was written by one of the co-directors of the Human Genome Project. A brilliant man, quintessential scientist and follower of Jesus.

It was intriguing mostly because as a 'liberal arts educated' person the questions and tensions he had, as a scientist, weren't ones I struggled with (dealing more with issues of post modernism, etc.). So his chapters were intriguing, but often I didn't understand his arguments.

He basically is a follower of the logic of C.S. Lewis (not a bad thing!) and has come down to an understanding of God as a God who has used evolution as a way of creating the human race. He delves into Genesis a bit, but an inductive study of Genesis would serve you better!

All in all, not the first book I would recommend, but was a simple and quick read.
