There is perhaps no more complex question facing the church today than whether or not to embrace evolutionary science and depart from a strict literalist view of Genesis 1-3. But does Genesis 1-3 even intend to speak to historical events? That is just one of the many sub-questions this topic forces on us as we attempt to be faithful to the biblical text--whatever form that faithfulness may come in.
As in many polarized debates, the answers are never as clear as the proponents of each side represent them to be. Book are published representing either view but rarely, if ever, adequately engage the views and points of another. Thankfully, this new volume Should Christians Embrace Evolution: Biblical and Scientific Responses engages the issues thoughtfully and with compelling argument in a true spirit on Christian respect for others. 13 scholars lay out the issues discuss the questions they raise and provide thoughtful analysis.

This is a most helpful compilation, which is designed to make one think very seriously about the whole issue of evolution and the Bible. To those who love the Scriptures, and seek to be faithful to them, this will prove enormously helpful. -Rt. Revd. Wallace Benn, Bishop of Lewes
