This work is a serious challenge to atheists like Richard Dawkins who seek meaning without God. The universe and life have a story to tell, and this book makes that story accessible to the lay person.

With fresh insight into the mystery of the origin of life, the essential point of the book is that all life is based on information. Just as a computer program infers the existence of a programmer, so the elegance and mind-boggling complexity of DNA, and the biochemical machinery it creates, point to a creative intelligence.

Who is this creator? The book suggests he is the one known in the Bible as "I AM who I AM". The author seeks to lead the reader, assisted by scientific evidence and a series of logical propositions, down a pathway to a deeper faith. How far that pathway is traveled is up to each reader to decide.

... a thoughtful and refreshingly unbiased work which uses scientific principle to confirm faith-based explanation.

... This really is the most welcoming, comprehensive and comprehendible book on the subject I've ever read.

I have been a Christian for many years, but I have also been a lover of science for those same years. It has been a long and often frustrating process for me to work out how to acknowledge both as truth without losing the power of one over the other. The Genesis of Life does a lot of this hard work for you, and makes beautiful sense. In some ways the book is a little like a trip back to high school - a refresher course on biology, geology, physics - but it was exciting to follow along the thought process and to make the same connections and conclusions alongside the author. There's enough technicality in the book to titillate my geeky side, and enough of God's passion to speak to me spiritually. I'm sure there are other books which address the same general ideas, but this is the first I've read and I found it very helpful. I'd recommend this book for anyone who has struggled with reconciling faith and science. I'd also recommend it to anyone who finds the whole spectrum of the sciences fascinating and just wants to hear a different perspective. Richard Dawkins and the like would have us believe there is only one possible conclusion to the questions raised by modern science; this book presents an alternative.
