The language of God : a scientist presents evidence for belief by Francis S Collins( Book )

53 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in 14 languages and held by 3,591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A head of the Human Genome Project and former atheist presents a scientific argument for the existence of God, revealing how science can support faith by citing the areas of nature that can and cannot be fully explained by Darwinian evolution
The language of life : DNA and the revolution in personalized medicine by Francis S Collins( Book )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and German and held by 1,771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A medical revolution is upon us, and leading geneticist Collins explains its dimensions here. Our knowledge of the genetic basis for disease has increased exponentially in recent years, and we are now able to understand and treat diseases at the molecular level with personalized medicine--care based on an individual's genetic makeup. Collins presents cutting-edge science for lay readers who want to take control of their medical lives. He discusses cancer, obesity, aging, racial differences, and a host of other concerns, as well as the medical advances directly attributable to the Human Genome Project. He is also not shy about taking on large political issues: he points out problems with our current health-care system, discusses stem-cell research, and in a cogent commentary, recommends--with caveats--direct-to-consumer DNA testing. He does a superb job of humanizing a complex scientific and medical subject.--From publisher description

The language of God a scientist presents evidence for belief by Francis S Collins( )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Collins makes the case for God and for science. Dr. Collins considers and dismisses several positions along the spectrum from atheism to young-earth creationism, including agnosticism and intelligent design. Instead he proposes a new synthesis, a new way to think about an active, caring God who created humankind through evolutionary processes. He explains his own journey from atheism to faith, and then takes listeners on a tour of modern science to show that physics, chemistry, and biology can all fit together with belief in God and the Bible
Belief : readings on the reason for faith by Francis S Collins( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Keynote From the New York Times bestselling author of The Language of God comes the definitive reader on the rationality of faith Description "Is there a God?" is the most central and profound question that humans ask. Throughout history, this subject has been discussed, defended, refuted, and debated. With the New Atheists gaining a loud voice in today's world, it is time to revisit the longstanding intellectual tradition on the side of faith. Francis Collins, New York Times bestselling author of The Language of God and renowned physician and geneticist, defends the reason for faith in this provocative collection. Collins is our guide as he takes us through the writings of many of the world's greatest thinkers, - philosophers, preachers, poets, scientists - both past and present, including such luminaries as C.S. Lewis and Augustine, and unexpected voices such as A.N. Wilson and Annie Dillard. Despite the doubts of a cynical world, this essential companion proves once and for all the rationality of faith. Including C.S. Lewis * Madeleine L'Engle * Martin Luther King * Annie Dillard * Elie Wiesel * Desmond Tutu * Mother Teresa * Blaise Pascal * Mahatma Gandhi * And many more"--Provided by publisher

Genetic testing for cancer : psychological approaches for helping patients and families by Andrea Farkas Patenaude( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nature or nurture?perhaps the central question of biology, psychology, and life itself. Today, for the first time in humanity's history, we are gathering the tools necessary to answer that question. Indeed, although we do not yet have the ability to provide all of the details, we already know the short answer: It is neither nature alone nor nurture alone, nor even the two contributing independently, but the two interwoven in a complex and finely tuned fashion that make people who they are. This book joins two disciplines that have too often been viewed as disparategenomics and psychologythat will need to work together to achieve a detailed understanding of these complex interactions. This is an exciting time of promise in understanding the causes, both genetic and nongenetic, of human health and disease. For that promise to become a reality, however, will take genomically literate psychologists and other mental health professionals and also experts in genomics who are well versed in the complexities of the mindbody interaction. The image of genetics and psychology as "worlds in collision" must give way to a collaborative spirit of 'worlds in collusion'"Foreword. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)
