"For too long, followers of Jesus have been told they have to make a choice--between science and Christianity, reason and belief, their intellectual integrity and their faith.The Language of Science and Faithis a readable and comprehensive resource for the thoughtful Christian who refuses to choose. Giberson and Collins tackle difficult topics with charity, accessibility and integrity, moving the origins conversation forward in a way that honors God and builds up the church. This is a must-read for those who want to love the Lord with their heart, soul, mind and strength." (Rachel Held Evans, author of Evolving in Monkey Town )

"Collins and Giberson add a learned and engaging voice to the continuing struggle between Christian faith and scientific knowledge. The authors are central figures in advancing a true conversation between an ancient faith and modern ways of knowing, and it is hard to match their experience in dealing with the central questions covered in this volume.The Language of Science and Faithis an accessible distillation of their wisdom and I recommend it with great enthusiasm." (Peter Enns, Senior Fellow in Biblical Studies, The BioLogos Foundation )

"The theory of evolution raises important questions for Christians of all sorts, but this book is the best I've found to address the concerns of American evangelicals. It is written in clear enough language to be accessible to students at a variety of levels, yet sophisticated enough to be of interest to professionals in both science and theology. It is at once intelligent and inspiring." (Nancey Murphy, professor of Christian philosophy, Fuller Theological Seminary )

"Concise. Clear. Convincing.The Language of Science and Faithprovides a straightforward means whereby the two sides of this contentious issue can get themselves on the same page. I recommend it as a resource for individuals and groups who want to believe that God speaks through both Scripture and nature." (Daniel M. Harrell, Ph.D., senior minister, Colonial Church, Edina, Minn., and author of Nature’s Witness: How Evolution Can Inspire Faith )

"This book is destined to become a classic for those who, with an open mind, are willing to seriously wrestle with questions about the relationship of modern science with Christian faith. It is not for the faint of heart but is a treasure trove for those willing to dig deep into this critical subject." (Dr. Tim Johnson, senior medical contributor for ABC News and author of Finding God in the Questions )

"Two challenging languages, one old and wise, one modern and awesome. Two very different accounts of human origins. Can the book of Scripture and the book of nature both be true in the age of science? We need sympathetic and enlightening interpreters. Happily Giberson and Collins here offer a guide to the perplexed that is reverent, relevant and very well-informed." (Owen Gingerich, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, author of God's Universe )

"As a pastor, I am constantly searching for resources that will guide people to the fullness of God. I care that my congregation be attracted toward God's artistry, moved by his majesty and intellectually challenged by his sovereignty. This book is at the top of my recommendations both as an evaluation of theories of creation and as a devotional that prompts us to revere the Creator." (Dr. Joel C. Hunter, Northland Church, Longwood, Florida )

review by . October 17, 2011
I’m a committed Christian and a mathematician with a serious interest in science, so this book had to catch my eye. Francis Collins is famous for his work on the Human Genome Project and his book The Language of God. Karl Giberson works with him in the BioLogos foundation which followed that work. And this book explains very clearly why there’s really no reason to deny faith or science in understanding the world. The writing makes an easy read with arguments well laid out, nicely relevant …
