This was a very interesting book. Dr. Collins makes a valiant attempt at combining evolution and Christianity. He had me going for a while, but the two worldviews are diametrically opposed. Collins even mentions one of the main problems with combining them, which is that the theology of the New Testament teaches that Adam and Eve were real people--our first parents--and their fall brought sin and death into the world. Jesus and the apostles interpreted the Genesis story literally (cf. Matt. 19, Romans 5).

Another disappointment is that Dr. Collins' theology is very unbiblical. He basically says that Jesus worked for him, but the reader's gonna have to find out what suits him. Jesus, however, said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (Jn 14:6).
