The Selfless Gene

Full Product Description

Published to coincide with 2 Darwin anniversaries in 2009, this controversial book argues that creationism and evolution can be reconciled.

In the Selfless Genes, Charles Foster assesses the claims of Neo-Darwinists and Young Earth Creationists, demonstrating that orthodox Christianity is not incompatible with what evolutionary biology says about our world. The real issue, he argues, centres around the ethical implications of natural selection, and what such a system – based on selfishness, waste and death – might say about the loving creator God of the Christian faith.

Intelligent, provocative and accessible, the Selfless Gene offers the prospect of reasoned dialogue between faith and scientific study, and a reconciliation of what are popularly seen as two opposing worldviews.

“An important antidote to the shrill hysteria about evolution.” Sam Berry, Professor Emeritus of Genetics, UCL

Charles Foster is a writer, barrister, and tutor in Medical Law and Ethics at the University of Oxford and sits as part-time judge in the criminal and civil courts. His two most recently published books are the Jesus Inquest (an inquiry into the historicity of the resurrection) and Tracking the Ark of the Convenant.

The Selfless Gene by Charles Foster was published by Hodder & Stoughton in April 2009 and is our 37515th best seller. The ISBN for The Selfless Gene is 9780340964361.
