It may be helpful to know my background. I’ve been a Christian since I was 4 years old yet in the last several months have dealt with many doubts and my faith was shaken. I was not angry at God and did not feel that He had treated me unfairly. I just somehow stopped assuming He existed and have been begging Him to show Himself to me. Someone suggested Collins’ books and this was the first I chose to read. The book seemed to give more credibility to by doubts than my faith.
Growing up a Christian I was raised on literal Bible interpretation (including Genesis 1 & 2) and that evolution was an unproven theory. I agree with the author that the mutual exclusivity of Christianity and evolution is a paradigm furthered by both Christians and Evolutionists. This book is the first intelligent argument I’ve heard that this does not have to be the case. That being said, Collins comes off a lot more confident in evolution than the existence of God. When he argues that the term theory in evolutionary theory does not mean “unproven” as much as it means “frame of thinking,” such as ‘music theory,’ part of me was really upset. I felt the collapsing of a lot of previously blindly held beliefs. I had to digest this for a while as the acceptance of evolutionary research seemed to edge God out of the picture in my mind as I realized how much I had let both secular and Christian cultures drive a wedge between the two ideas.
I do not have a scientific background and therefore no means to argue with Collins but I was confused by his idolization of Darwin. Though I understand Darwin was brilliant and innovative, I struggle to believe how someone in that time could have every theory upheld by all the modern technology and revelation that has come since his time. Collins never seems to show any weakness in Darwin’s work.
As much as the book poked at my commonly held assumptions, I believe it would probably do the same to anyone who came in not believing in God but as open-minded as I was to the idea of the opposite being true. Collins is able to depict the detail and complexity of life and, while being very open on his confidence in evolution, is insistent that such does not negate the possibility of God. He repeatedly suggests evolution as the means God chose to use.
Beliefs in creation, intelligent design, and even life beginning at conception will be challenged in this book. Despite not holding this traditional Christian beliefs, Collins very factually and without heavy reliance on personal experiences argues that the moral conscience and human longing for God may just be the very evidence of a God who had, has and will have a part with human life.
