Dr. Francis Collins — Geneticist & Author Of The Language Of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for BeliefA number of years ago, the man who cracked the genome found God. As head of the Human Genome Project at the National Institutes of Health for seven years, Collins had overseen the sequencing of the genetic road map for human life - a breakthrough that promised to save millions. In The Language of God, Dr. Collins, describes his own journey from atheism to committed Christianity, a faith he embraced as a young physician. However, he also discusses his belief as a theistic evolutionist. They believe that there is a God, that he is (in some way) the creator of the material universe and (by consequence) all life within, and that biological evolution is simply a natural process within that creation. Evolution, according to this view, is simply a tool that God created and employed to help life grow and flourish.

Tim Stoner — Author of The God Who Smokes: Scandalous Meditations On FaithEmergent theology is raising some of the most provocative and divisive questions in the church today. For some, these ideas embody the true spirit of the gospel, trading tired religion for authenticity and relevance. Others dismiss it as a heresy that compromises the gospel in the name of tolerance and dilutes the truth to attract a jaded generation. Is there any room for middle ground? Timothy Stoner thinks so. The God Who Smokes provides an honest response to the post-modern cry for authentic spirituality. Timothy celebrates the good within Emergent while providing a balanced and thoughtful critique. Throughout, you’ll discover not only the issues that can divide but also the burning passion that can unite us all.

This week on the Counsel Of Many: A man who has been unemployed for over two years feels totally abandoned by God as his prayers continue to go unanswered.
"Here is my situation. I am over 50 years of age and have now been out of work for 25 months. Prior to this experience, I was a successful professional earning a decent living here in the GTA. Despite interviews, I have been unsuccessful at landing anything close in my field, even positions that would of paid 20-30% less. My severance package carried our family till some time last year, but now my wife has been carrying the load in keeping us above water. For me the frustration is the incredible sense of abandonment by God. Unanswered prayer by my Lord leaves me with this feeling of being ignored for whatever reason. The best analogy to describe this is like a child being ignored by his father, despite his pleas for help. If I where to ignore my son's pleas for assistance, I would not have much of a relationship with him. He would question my position as a father. And that is where I am at today, I am questioning him. My faith is being crushed and I fear my resilience will not sustain me much longer and permanently damage my relationship with Him."
