On 7/9 Sarah Wells, MD wrote: This book was far from the “reasoned dialogue” between faith and science that it purported to be. Rather, it felt more like an angry tirade.

On 7/7 Dawn Hanlon wrote: The cover of this book suggested an " intelligent and highly readable" look at the differences of Creationism and Natural Selection, and how they may actually be connected.

I put it down intending to pick it back up later when I thought I would have more time to digest it. And then we moved, and it got lost in the jumble. And ...

On 9/3 Scott Higa wrote: One of my very favorite classes in seminary looked at the relationship between science and the church.

On 8/4 Susan Stearns wrote: The Selfless Gene LIVING WITH GOD AND DARWIN, by Charles Foster, is a very thought provoking book.

I must agree with this, although ... THE SELFLESS GENE

On 7/21 Stephen Johnson wrote: The Selfless Gene Living with God and Darwin by Charles Foster is a very thought provoking book for God and Science. I am glad that he has tackled a subject like this because sometimes deep topics need to be broken down into smaller ones to understand them. He does a great job in balancing both sides ...
