Recommended for: Science Buffs and Philosphers
Read in May, 2008

The first half of the book is a vigorous and well constructed defense of the theory of evolution. It takes on the arguments from advocates of "intelligent design" and creationism. The defense is carefully organized and well written (with the exception of the repeated use of the phrase "in other words").

The second half is a personal essay explaining why he continues to believe in God. This portion relates Miller's view of God against the traditional Western view. There is no serious effort to relate to scriptures. Instead, Miller addresses the essence of God.

The second half is fine if you want the personal views of the author. Generally, it was substantially weaker than the first half.
