Add To Cart
Arthur Peacocke, eminent priest-scientist, has collected thirteen of his essays for this volume. Previously published in various academic journals and edited books, the provocative essays expand upon the theme of the evolution of nature, humanity, and belief. They are grouped in three parts:
  • Natural Evolution, covering topics ranging from the implications of deterministic chaos; biological evolution and Christian theology; chance, potentiality, and God; and complexity, emergence, and divine creativity.
  • Humanity Evolving in the Presence of God, articulating God's presence in and to the world as it is unveiled by the sciences; the chrysalis of the human; the nature and purpose of man in science and Christian theology.
  • Theological Evolution - the Re-shaping of Belief, dealing with science and the future of theology; public truth in religion; the incarnation of the self-expressive word of God; DNA; and the challenges and possibilities of western theism. In the epilogue, Dr. Peacocke discusses wisdom in science and education, referring to Robert Grosseteste, a medieval scientist-theologian.

In contemporary theology, the relationship between religion and science remains one of the more contentious subjects. Korsmeyer (God-Creature-Revelation, Univ. Pr. of America, 1994) bravely and successfully tackles one of the thorniest issues--evolution and theology--offering a theological reintepretation of the Catholic doctrine of original sin in light of evolutionary scientific evidence. The Church's acceptance of the literal truth of the story of humanity's fall in Genesis provides the starting point for this discussion. Korsmeyer uses a combination of historical, philosophical, theological, scriptural, scientific, and magisterial ideas in his reinterpretation of original sin. In the final chapter, Korsmeyer bases his reinterpretation on a neoclassical evolutionary understanding of the cosmos and humanity and their developing relationship to God. This book makes a significant contribution to our theological understanding of original sin and helps to bridge the gap between theology and science.
     

 
The Battle of Beginnings: Why Neither Side Is Winning  the Creation-Evolution DebateThe Battle of Beginnings: Why Neither Side Is Winning the Creation-Evolution Debate
Del Ratzsch
Retail Price: $20.00
CBD Price: $18.00
( Usually ships in 24-48 hours. )
Add To Cart
Del Ratzsch examines the history of the debate and takes aim at entrenched positions that he argues impede progress from either side. Dissatisfied with both creationist fallacies and materialist misconstruals, he seeks to lay the groundwork for more fruitful dialogue. In considerable detail he looks at the history and development of Darwin's theory and popular creationist misunderstandings of evolution, moving on to the history and development of creationist theory and popular evolutionist misunderstandings of it. He then discusses the nature of science and common creationist and evolutionist abuses as a prelude to showing why both sides have remained critical of theistic evolution.
     

 

 
Darwin's Cathedral: Evolution, Religion, and the Nature of SocietyDarwin's Cathedral: Evolution, Religion, and the Nature of Society
David Sloan Wilson
Retail Price: $16.00
CBD Price: $14.40
( Usually ships in 24-48 hours. )
Add To Cart
Until recently, evolution and religion have been considered contending, irreconcilable theories of origin and existence. In this book, David Sloan Wilson takes the radical step of joining the two, but not in the usual fashion. The key, he argues, is to think of society as an organism - one in which morality and religion are adaptations that allow groups of humans to function as a coherent whole.

Can a Darwinian be a Christian?:  The Relationship between Science and ReligionCan a Darwinian be a Christian?: The Relationship between Science and Religion
Michael Ruse

CBD Price: $29.24
( Usually ships in 24-48 hours. )
Add To Cart
Adopting a balanced perspective on the subject, Michael Ruse offers a serious examination of both Darwinism and Christianity. He covers a wide range of topics, from the Scopes Monkey Trial to claims about the religious significance of extraterrestrials. He deals with major figures in the current science/religion debate and considers in detail the claims of the new creationism, revealing some surprising parallels between Darwinian materialists and traditional thinkers such as St. Augustine. Michael Ruse argues that, although it is at times difficult for a Darwinian to embrace Christian belief, it is by no means inconceivable. At the same time he suggests ways in which a Christian believer should have no difficulty accepting evolution in general, and Darwinism in particular.

Perspectives on an Evolving CreationPerspectives on an Evolving Creation
Keith B. Miller, ed.
Retail Price: $42.00
CBD Price: $37.80
( Usually ships in 24-48 hours. )
Add To Cart
According to the authors of this book, who explore evolutionary theory from a clear Christian perspective, the common view of conflict between evolutionary theory and Christian faith is mistaken. Written by contributors representing the natural sciences, philosophy, theology, and the history of science, this thought-provoking work is informed by both solid scientific knowledge and keen theological insight. The three sections of the book address (1) relevant biblical, historical, and scientific background, (2) the scientific evidence for an evolving creation, and (3) theological issues commonly raised in connection with evolution, including the nature of God's creative activity, the meaning of the miraculous, and the uniqueness of humankind. Woven through the volume are short meditations designed to direct readers toward worshiping the God of providence.
