Timothy Johnson gives us a relentlessly honest exploration of the biggest questions of all: Can we believe in God in the face of the discoveries of science? And can Christian faith really be credible for a tough-minded seeker? Dr. Johnson never settles for easy answers. I heard Dr. Timothy speak on this topic, and was excited when I found a copy of the book that was the basis of his talk.

One of Massachusetts Bible Society's Top Ten Religious Books of 2004! #8 on the New York Times Hardcover Advice Bestseller List! (June 14, 2004) #7 on the Publishers Weekly Religion Hardcover Bestseller List (October 2004) Do you wonder whether or not God is real? Do you doubt that religion can be relevant? Do you wish that faith were possible for you? Don't shy away from your questions, says Dr. Timothy Johnson, medical editor for ABC News. He believes that's where God meets you--in the midst of honest grappling with heartfelt issues. In this remarkable book, Dr. Johnson discloses his deeply personal journey of faith. With the same keen mind accustomed to medical and scientific examination, he investigates the plausibility of God's existence and explores the significance of the person of Jesus. Despite all the difficulties of faith, he explains what he believes and why. He writes, "As a physician, I have committed my professional life to healing and wellness. But my public work is only a small part of who I really am--or rather, who I want to be. This book is, in a sense, 'the rest of the story.' "For many people, religion provides answers to the big questions of life. For others, the absolute claims of religion raise more questions than they answer. I have lived on both sides--and in some senses, I still do. My path of faith has wandered through both doubt and belief, often at the same time. "Doubt doesn't have to tear down belief, however; it can purify it. When it does, the beliefs on the other side become more certain. This is why I would like to affirm that it is possible to find God even while you are still asking the big questions." Come join a fellow pilgrim on the journey. Ask your questions--and perhaps find God behind them.

This is the first book about Intelligent Design (ID) that I am aware of that made the New York Times best seller list. Timothy Johnson is a professor at Harvard Medical School, and several of his colleagues at Harvard, including the Dean of Harvard Medical School, Dr. Joseph Martin, endorsed his book. Johnson is also the medical correspondent for ABC news where he has done many excellent news broadcasts and documentaries. Johnson's ID book does not just defend ID, but reviews his own spiritual journey beginning from his childhood religious beliefs, common to most of us in the 1930s, to a skeptic, and then back to belief. He then discusses why ID was critical in his journey back to belief. Johnson graduated from high school as valedictorian and, after 2 years of college, decided that he wanted to become a minister. His theology studies at the University of Chicago, instead of deepening his faith, caused him to lose it (not uncommon in my experience). In his words "under the challenge of some very bright and skeptical teachers at the university of Chicago" he began to "doubt most everything" he learned as a child, including the belief that the Bible is the word of God, that Jesus was the son of God, and even the conclusion that God rules the universe. No longer a believer, he graduated and was ordained, but decided not to enter the ministry (he felt he would be a hypocrite if he did) but rather he elected to study medicine, partly due his seminary training to help others and his field placements in the hospital visitation work. He found God many years later by examining in detail the major questions that trouble many of us. He begins by asking if the universe is an "accidental" creation (the outworking of time, natural law and chance) and concluded after studying many books, including especially those by ID advocates, that our inner and outer universes are not only far too vast and complex to be the result of natural forces, but, more importantly, are constructed in such a way as to force the conclusion that they were created by an intelligent designer. The footprints of an intelligent creator, he concludes, are found everywhere in the natural world, including in the very nature of human conscience and in our basic need to form the relationships that shape our lives. Johnson cites the major ID literature, which he recommends highly, and often cites it in the chapters on ID.

One of the best books I have read in years. I would recommend it to anyone even if they are not particularly interested in Jesus. The first quarter to a third of the book is dedicated to the science involved in the Big Bang creation of the universe - in words that any lay person can understand. Then the author does the same thing for the development and continued existance of human beings. Absolutely fascinating!

I have known of Dr. Johnson for 40 + years, as he was on the board of my college NPC/ now North Park University. I got my first copy of this book right after it came out. Since then I have given away so many copies of this book to people who had sincere questions about God and Science. Most have come by to see me to say how incredibly helpful it was for them. I appreciate Dr. Johnson's honesty and his integrity in what he wrote. This should be in every Chaplain's and Pastor's office.

He really has great thoughts

This book is for anyone searching for a more scientific take on the existence of God. He shows how you can use reason and blend it with faith. Provocative.

Wonderful, thoughtful book that stimulates powerful intellectual reflections for all to consider without judgement from the author. Well wrItten. I especially value the resources and discussion sessions. I found the information personally stimulating and helpful in my life and in understanding others with different beliefs.

The story of one man's journey from faith to doubt and back to faith. A great read for those who are struggling with the ideas of pain, suffering, and doubt. There really are answers to many of life's questions.
I heard Dr. Timothy speak on this topic, and was excited when I found a copy of the book that was the basis of his talk. It's not only a good read for Christians, but also a good book to share with those who are seekers (or even doubters) as well.
