There’s something interesting in the current Deseret Book catalog. As you probably know, almost all of the titles featured in the catalog are published by Deseret, but they seem to pick up a few non-DB, non-LDS books each time. So in addition to The Reagan Diaries, they are featuring The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief. Here is the text from the DB catalog:
This marvelous book combines a personal account of Collins’s faith and experience as a genetics researcher with discussions on more general topics of science and spirituality, especially centering around evolution. The book argues that belief in a transcendent, personal God can and should coexist with a scientific picture of the world that includes evolution.
Huh. I haven’t read the book. I’d like to hear from those who have. And I also wonder why DB chose to stock this book (not to mention to feature it prominently in its catalog): Are they interested in advancing a pro-evolution viewpoint? Are they wanting to approach the issue of genetics (often used to Mormon bash) from a faith-promoting perspective?
