Second Sunday Book Group

SUNDAY, JULY 11, 1 P.M., via Zoom

We’re reading “The Language of God” (2006) by Francis Collins, Director of the National Institute of Health. Collins’ book, published the same year as evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins’, “The God Delusion,” is indicative of the on-going attacks religious beliefs were facing from some popular scientists and other religious skeptics. As a former religious skeptic, Collins takes on skeptics, those who are hostile to religious beliefs, and what he believes to be unscientific religious beliefs to argue that faith in God and faith in science need not be at odds with each other. Although not a recent book, it may still be relevant when the loudest voices in the rooms seem to be deriding science, not religion. Collins is most famous for directing the project that mapped the entire 3.1 billion letter code of the human DNA and for being Dr. Fauci’s boss.
