The Genesis of Life

Author: Alan Marshall

My book on science and faith was published in March, 2014. Copies are available at the back of the church. Here is a summary from the back cover:

This work is a serious challenge to atheists like Richard Dawkins who seek meaning without God. The universe and life have a story to tell, and this book makes that story accessible to the lay person. Providing fresh insight into the mystery of the origin of life, the essential point of the book is that all life is based on information. Just as a computer program infers the existence of a programmer, so the elegance and mind-boggling complexity of DNA, and the biochemical machinery it creates, point to a creative intelligence.

Who is this creator? The book suggests he is the one known in the Bible as “I AM who I AM”. The author seeks to lead the reader, assisted by scientific evidence and a series of logical propositions, down a pathway to a deeper faith. How far that pathway is traveled is up to each reader to decide.

 … a thoughtful and refreshingly unbiased work which uses scientific principle to confirm faith-based explanation.

 … This really is the most welcoming, comprehensive and comprehendible book on the subject I’ve ever read.
