"The illusion of purpose is so powerful," writes Richard Dawkins, "that biologists themselves use the assumption of good design as a working tool." In The Design of Life, William Dembski and Jonathan Wells argue that this tool is so successful precisely because it is real. Dembski and Wells present a compelling scientific case for the intelligent design of biological systems. Their laser-like analysis, clear explanations, and illuminating analogies will captivate every reader, whether trained scientist or curious lay person.

What They're Saying...

The Design of Life is the finest book I have ever seen on this topic. The material is accessible and it gets right to the key issues. Handsomely done and well written, The Design of Life symbolizes the maturity of the Intelligent Design movement. I heartily recommend it.”
—J.P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Biology, Biola University

“The million people who bought copies of Richard Dawkins’ The God Delusion and want to learn the truth about this matter should now buy their copies of Dembski and Wells’ The Design of Life.”
—Antony Flew

The Design of Life brilliantly lays out all the main lines of evidence and argument in the current dispute between the Darwinists and the growing body of Intelligent Design theorists. Dembski and Wells write in a refreshingly carefully reasoned, lucid and direct style, pulling no punches when it comes to answering the criticisms of their leading Darwinist opponents. They make a formidable case that the indications of design seen everywhere in nature at all levels of organization (and acknowledged by the Darwinists) bespeak real and not just apparent design.”
—Dean Kenyon, Emeritus Professor of Biology, San Francisco State University

“When future intellectual historians list the books that toppled Darwin’s theory, The Design of Life will be at the top.”
—Michael Behe, Professor of Biochemistry, Lehigh University
