Francis Collins Found God

The atheist-scientist Francis Collins, who led the international Human Genome Project converted to evangelical Christianity.

In his new book 'The Language of God', the classical debate between science and religion is being examined. He challenges both, atheistic scientists to contemplate the plausibility of the existence of God through their vocation, and fellow evangelicals to reconsider their opposition towards evolution. Dr. Collins is a theistic-evolutionist.

I'm reading this book right now--and it is great! It reads so easy, like narrative nonfiction. That surprised me given the title. (Language of God just sounds heavy.)

Dr. John Medina, a similar scientist, talks about some good stuff like this in an interview I did with TheHighCalling.org. You might want to check it out: From Curiosity to Jesus.

Yup, I dunno why this article was titled found God, when Collins has been a believer for a long time. Anyway, I highly recomend the language of God.
