An instant bestseller, The Language of God provides the best argument for the integration of faith and logic since C.S. Lewis's Mere Christianity. It has long been believed that science and faith cannot mingle. Faith rejects the rational, while science restricts us to a life with no meaning beyond the physical. It is an irreconcilable war between two polar-opposite ways of thinking and living. Written for believers, agnostics, and atheists alike, The Language of God provides a testament to the power of faith in the midst of suffering without faltering from its logical stride. Readers will be inspired by Collin's personal story of struggling with doubt, as well as the many revelations of the wonder of God's creation that will forever shape the way they view the world around them.

Professional reviews

"It is possible for the ability to do serious science and the holding of devout religious belief to co-exist in the same person. This is the fundamental point of this book by one of the key scientists involved in the Human Genome Project, the mapping of the complete human DNA sequence. Collins goes beyond a discussion of DNA and records his own spiritual journey, which takes its inspiration from that of C.S. Lewis. Collins is adequate as narrator, neither overly professorial in the academic sections nor too emotional in the personal ones. His diction is not entirely crisp, but this is only a small distraction. An extra CD provides more than a dozen charts and diagrams. R.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
