Dr Francis S. Collins, head of the Human Genome Project, is one of the world's leading scientists, working at the cutting edge of the study of DNA, the code of life. Yet he is also a man of unshakable faith in God. How does he reconcile the seemingly unreconcilable? In THE LANGUAGE OF GOD he explains his own journey from atheism to faith, and then takes the reader on a stunning tour of modern science to show that physics, chemistry and biology -- indeed, reason itself -- are not incompatible with belief. His book is essential reading for anyone who wonders about the deepest questions of all: why are we here? How did we get here? And what does life mean?

Twenty-first century Christians live in diaspora, merely one voice among many, without enjoying their once-privileged place in society. This is particularly the case for those who struggle to be a church that mirrors the capaciousness of God's grace. We are assaulted by the venting of pent-up furies, which are stoked by profound anxieties over the loss of a cherished worldview and fear about an unacceptable but unstoppable future. Frequently, we struggle to speak an authentic word of God amidst the cross-talk of many voices. This book--a canonical study of Hosea through Malachi, called collectively The Book of the Twelve--describes a biblical model of faithful speaking under similar circumstances. It guides reaction to this loss toward intense engagement with Scripture and theology in order to sense again the meaning of speaking what is at the heart of faith, God's unalterable commitment to continuing faithfulness with us.

Traditionally, scholars have traced the origin of Christianity to a single source - the kingdom of God as represented in the message of the historical Jesus. Through a rhetorical critical analysis of one of the most important texts in early Christian literature (the Beelzebul controversy), Michael L. Humphries addresses the issue of Christian origins, demonstrating how the language of the kingdom of God is best understood according to its locative or taxonomic effect where the demarcation of social and cultural boundaries contributes to the emergence of this new social foundation. Humphries establishes the Q and Markan versions of the Beelzebul controversy as relatively sophisticated compositions that are formally identified as elaborate chreiai (a literary form used in the teaching of rhetoric at the secondary and post-secondary level of Greco-Roman education) and that offer an excellent example of the rhetorical manipulation of language in the development of social and cultural identity.

Fellow geneticist George C. Cunningham presents a point-by-point rebuttal of Francis Collins' "The Language of God," arguing that there is no scientifically acceptable evidence to support belief in a personal God and much that discredits it.

The Language of God in History reinterprets history and archeology within a biblical framework. It also refutes the atheistic humanism behind modern archeological, scientific, and historical viewpoints. Archeological evidence is then re-examined through a biblical worldview, revealing how many ancient buildings appear to have originally been designed not to worship Pagan deities, but the one true God. By deciphering the Language of God hidden in these ancient structures, some startling conclusions are drawn concerning the spiritual teachings of the godly people before the Flood - especially the prophet Enoch. The pyramids of Egypt's Old Kingdom are particularly examined as possible storehouses of antediluvian spiritual and scientific wisdom. Next, using facts found in the Bible and the Book of 1 Enoch, the Nephilim, and the possible causes of the Great Flood are explored, as well as the swift Post-Flood devolution of mankind into sin - as Noah and Shem's righteous witness were forgotten, paganism spread across the globe, and Yahweh's truths were gradually perverted - just as they had been prior to the Flood. Finally, the rise and fall of ancient Israel, the facts behind their migrations in the Diaspora, and the re-immergence of Israel in modern times is discussed in preparation for the study of biblical prophecy in the final book of this series.
