It is possible for the ability to do serious science and the holding of devout religious belief to co-exist in the same person. This is the fundamental point of this book by one of the key scientists involved in the Human Genome Project, the mapping of the complete human DNA sequence. Collins goes beyond a discussion of DNA and records his own spiritual journey, which takes its inspiration from that of C.S. Lewis. Collins is adequate as narrator, neither overly professorial in the academic sections nor too emotional in the personal ones. His diction is not entirely crisp, but this is only a small distraction. An extra CD provides more than a dozen charts and diagrams. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
