The debate about biological origins continues to be hotly contested within the Christian church. Prominent organisations such as Biologos (USA) and Faraday Institute (UK) insist that Christians must yield to an unassailable scientific consensus in favor of contemporary evolutionary theory. They promote a view known as “theistic evolution” – the view that God used evolutionary mechanisms to produce all forms of life. This book contests this proposal.
Featuring two dozen highly credentialed scientists, philosophers and theologians from Europe and North America, this volume provides the most comprehensive critique of theistic evolution yet produced. It documents evidential, logical and theological problems with theistic evolution, opening the door to scientific and theological alternatives.
“This volume fills a wide and expanding gap for Christians who continue to struggle with the relationship of evangelical Christianity to the claims of science… Scholarly, informative, well-researched, and well-argued, this will be the best place to begin to ferret out reasons for conflict among Christians who take science seriously.” - K. Scott Oliphint, Professor of Apologetics and Systematic Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary
