Theistic Evolution

Full Product Description

  • For anyone interested in science and faith
  • This book critiques the idea that God used Darwinian Evolution in creation
  • You'll find a variety of arguments to weigh up in your questions and wonderings
The debate about biological origins continues to be hotly contested within the Christian church. Prominent organizations such as Biologos (USA) and Faraday Institute (UK) insist that Christians must yield to an unassailable scientific consensus in favour of contemporary evolutionary theory and modify traditional biblical ideas about the creation of life accordingly. They promote a view known as "theistic evolution" or "evolutionary creation." They argue that God used—albeit in an undetectable way—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—making the book essential reading for understanding this worldview-shaping issue.

Theistic Evolution by J. P. Moreland was published by Crossway in November 2017 and is our 28958th best seller. The ISBN for Theistic Evolution is 9781433552861.
