The Genetic God by Ian Minielly is an intriguing tale that features a compelling theme, one that will be delightful for Christian readers. In this story, the author asks the question: what if there was evidence in human DNA that scientifically proved the existence of God? In a world where powerful governments and politicians are bent on using this lack of faith to manipulate and control citizens, a startling discovery is made that strongly proves the existence of God. But will the State of Washington allow this kind of proof to be shared with the entire world, knowing how it will affect Christians, non-Christians, Jews, Muslims, and everyone else? It is a discovery that will not prove the existence of God to all skeptics, but one that will prove that staunch skeptics are wrong. As Thomas and Cliff and their circle work to ferment the findings of their research, forces emerge that will do everything to impede their efforts.
I loved The Genetic God and I rejoiced at the ingenuity in the plot and the brilliance in articulating a theme as relevant as the connection between science and religion. I had many questions racing through my mind - not that I don’t believe in the existence of God - but a breakthrough that can present the evidence of God in an undisputed manner can change the world. In this book, the author makes a powerful case for the existence of God and readers will understand that the proof of God’s existence is in what is not scientifically proven. There are always instances of mystery where science fails to give an explanation, and this work of speculative science fiction invites readers into a debate between faith and reason. As one reads on, following the well-developed characters, the truths about God are laid bare. It is indisputable that faith starts where science sets its boundaries. Author Ian Minielly created wonderfully written characters and I adored them as they navigated a world filled with mystery and events that awakened them in extraordinary ways. My favorite character was Thomas, a convert who becomes a strong proponent of Christianity. The Genetic God is an intriguing story with strong themes of religion, science, and politics. Balanced and deftly written, it is a tale as inspirational as any can be.
