"In this book Cal DeWitt looks at nature through the eyes of the Creator, the eyes of a scientist, and the eyes of the psalmist. As you read, you will hear the heartbeat of God, the groans and hopes of a scientist, and a lilting rendering of songs of awe and wonder at God's marvelous creation!"
Prof. Jeyakar Chellaraj
Former honorary director of the Heber Au Sable Institute (India)
Principal of Bishop Heber College in Tiruchirappalli, India.
"If God is one, then truth must be one too. Finally both spirituality and science are recognizing that they are peering into the same living well and into the same endless sky. Calvin DeWitt will help you see beautifully in both directions!"

"The personal lifelong experiences of Cal DeWitt and those of his friends, students, and acquaintances sing a wonderful song in praise of creation throughout this book. This is a compelling and encouraging word of hope in these days of so much environmental destruction. "
Professor Sir Ghillean Prance
"This book is a song that could only be written by an author who is a believer in whose heart has shone the light of the glory of God, and a scientist whose eyes are open to see God's handiwork in the natural world. It is a song that reproduces the harmony that there is between God's creation and God's salvation. Calvin DeWitt has exemplified that harmony in his own life. He is therefore well qualified to challenge us to live out our faith in terms of a harmonious stewardship in this world we share with God's creatures, great and small. I highly recommend joining him in singing this beautiful song."

"Calvin DeWitt forwards a compelling and engaging argument, defeating the often-heard claim that science and theology are adversaries. In a brilliant and well-documented account, DeWitt makes his point using scientific facts effectively illustrated by his own stories of scientific work. Do not let the title fool you. Thoroughly scientific and unapologetically Christian, this brief "song" presents a serious and poignant work that should help mitigate the unnecessary conflict between science and theology while giving a new and exciting appreciation for creation—the work of God."
Director of the Center for Faith and Culture
"I've been waiting for a book that infectiously communicates what Cal Dewitt embodies. This is it. Cal is by nature a lover—of people, of words, of God, of creation. Reading this, your love for each will flourish. But beware—all this love will open your heart to the jolting words of a prophet. And then you will be responsible for what you do with what you've heard."
Ken Wilson is senior pastor of Vineyard Church of Ann Arbor and author most recently of Mystically Wired: Exploring New Realms in Prayer
"A prophet for our times, Cal DeWitt continues to wake up the church to the biggest problem facing the world today—the very survival of the planet. Song of a Scientist calls the church to take a leadership role in caring for God's creation—a must read for all who want to help build bridges between people of science and faith. "

"Cal DeWitt has one of the great minds, and one of the great hearts, of the environmental movement. This book will open many eyes!"
