Finding Darwin’s God

Finding Darwin’s God: A Scientist’s Search for Common Ground Between God and Evolution by Kenneth R. Miller – Harper Perennial, ISBN 0-06-093049-7 An attempt by a scientist (a biologist), who is both believer and believer in evolution, to make the peace between ideas of God and evolution. Unfortunately, being a humanitarian scientist, he spends first eight of his nine chapters thoroughly igniting religious zealots, and the last chapter is mostly devoted to the idea that God works in indirect ways. However, as a natural scientist, he brings a lot of material on the way that you may find interesting and good to read. And he mentions a lot of right folks, including Dennet, Pinker and, of course, Dawkins, not to mention Darwin :-).
