A stunning defence of faith from one of the world's leading scientists: the long-time head of the Human Genome Project
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 1,742 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( )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 469 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 456 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
