About the book:

The Language of Science and Faith
Straight Answers to Genuine Questions

Karl W. Giberson & Francis S. Collins


Christians affirm that God created everything-from subatomic quarks to black holes. Science, however, often claims to explain nature without reference to God. And thoughtful Christians often feel forced to choose between the two.

In The Language of Science and Faith: Straight Answers to Genuine Questions, world-renowned scientist Francis Collins, author of The Language of God, and fellow scientist Karl Giberson explain that faith does not mean rejecting science. Together they break down this misunderstanding by answering dozens of common questions people ask about evolution, Darwin, the age of the earth, the existence of God and more.
