Francis Collins by the Book

Today's entry was written by the BioLogos Editorial Team and features Francis Collins. You can read more about what we believe here.

Recently in the New York Times Review of Books, Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health NIH and founder of the BioLogos Foundation, was interviewed about what he keeps on his bookshelf (and what he doesn’t).

Collins talks about his favorite science writers, including those who tackle topics of science and faith, as well as his favorite novelists and the books that one might be surprised to find on his shelves.

Read the full interview here.


Dr. Francis Collins is a physician and geneticist known for spearheading the Human Genome Project and for his landmark discoveries of disease genes. Collins founded the BioLogos Foundation in November 2007 and served as its president until August 16, 2009, when he resigned to become director of the National Institutes of Health. (Note: All blogs written by Collins were completed before accepting his duty as director of the NIH).

I really don’t think anyone would be surprized that Collins reads Dawkins, etc.
