Debating Darwin

Full Product Description

2009 is the 150th anniversary of the publication of The Origin of Species and Christians continue to disagree about whether Darwinism should be baptised into our theology or rejected as anti-Christian. This book is aimed at Christians on both sides of the debate and hopes to further discussion.

In this book two distinct questions are under the microscope:
- Is Darwinism compatible with orthodox Christian faith?
- Does the scientific evidence support Darwinism?

The book begins with a simple explanation of the neo-Darwinian theory of evolution. Stephen Lloyd then opens the first debate by making a theological and biblical case against Darwin. He is met in ‘battle’ by Graeme Finlay and Stephen Pattemore, who argue that Christian Scripture and theology are compatible with Darwinism. Each set of authors then has a chance to respond to their opponents.

In the second debate David Swift argues that whilst science does support microevolution by natural selection it does not support macro-evolution. In fact, he says, the science undermines neo-Darwinian claims. ‘Not so!’ says Graeme Finlay, who argues that the latest work in genetics demonstrates the truth of neo-Darwinism beyond reasonable doubt. Swift and Finlay then interact with each other.

Debating Darwin will not tell readers what to think, but it will inform a more intelligent response.
