Should Christians Embrace Evolution?
Full Product Description
In the past, Christians held to a variety of approaches to reconciling their theology with scientific understanding, and were accorded respect. However, with the attack from the new atheists, any view that does not fully accept evolution is now being denigrated by those Christians in the scientific community who do accept it. There have been calls for Christians to celebrate Darwin - and to embrace Darwinian evolution or acknowledge that they are opposed to science.
For the contributors to this volume, this is a false premise. In response, they set out a clear framework for the relevant issues and confront key questions to which this gives rise. They are committed to the authority of Scripture, the need for careful exegesis, and the importance of rigorous scientific investigation. They offer valuable perspectives on a contentious and complex area of debate, for non-specialists prepared to weigh the information, seek further clarification, and draw their own conclusions.
The contributors include Alistair Donald (Church of Scotland), Alistair McKitterick (Moorlands College), Michael Reeves (UCCF), Greg Haslam (Westminster Chapel), R. T. Kendall, Steve Fuller (Warwick University), Andy McIntosh (Leeds University), Geoff Barnard (Cambridge University) and John Walton (St Andrews University).

Should Christians Embrace EvolutionAlan Hill, via The Good Book Stall
The topic of creation and evolution is firmly on the Christian’s agenda. Many Christians now teach that evolution is wrong. Yet others say that evolution and the Bible can be reconciled. Should Christians embrace Evolution makes an important contribution to this debate.
Written partly as a response to the recent book by Denis Alexander (a Christian who believes in theistic evolution) this book is a collection of essays by Bible scholars who are committed to the authority of the scriptures and scientists who are committed to an accurate examination of the scientific facts.
The first seven articles aim to prove that one cannot accept evolutionary teaching without compromising essential teachings of the Bible. For instance, in one chapter the author shows that Paul’s argument in Romans 5 is meaningless unless Adam was a real person who was the father of us all. I found all bar one of the articles well written and thought provoking.
The second seven articles look at the current scientific evidence for evolution. These are written in a more technical style. The authors each carefully weigh up the evidence covering a number of areas including homology, the human genome and (most interestingly) the origin of life. They each come to the same conclusion – evolution is not scientifically proven beyond doubt.
This is a serious book on a serious subject and is well worth reading whatever your view on this subject. But be warned: it may change your view on life, the universe and in fact everything!
