Publisher's Description

Evolution makes good scientific sense. The question is whether it makes good theological sense as well. Christians who find evolution contrary to faith often do so because they focus solely on the issues of the world's design and the notion of the gradual descent of all life from a common ancestry. But that point of view overlooks the significance of the dramatic narrative going on beneath the surface. What evolution is has become more important than what it means. Haught suggests that, rather than necessarily contradicting one another, theologians and Darwinian scientists actually share an appreciation of the underlying meaning and awe-inspiring mystery of evolution. He argues for a focus on evolution as an ongoing drama and suggests that we simply cannot-indeed need not-make complete sense of it until it has fully played out. Ultimately, when situated carefully within a biblical vision of the world as open to a God who makes all things new, evolution makes sense scientifically and theologically.

Author Bio

John F. Haught is Senior Fellow in Science and Religion at the Woodstock Theological Center at Georgetown University in Washington, D. C. One of the world's leading thinkers in the field of theology and science, Haught was Chair and Professor in the Department of Theology at Georgetown from 1970 to 2005. An international lecturer and prolific author, his books include Christianity and Science, God After Darwin: A Theology of Evolution, and the prize-winning Deeper than Darwin: The Prospects for Religion in the Age of Evolution.

Editorial Reviews

"By taking Darwin's and neo-Darwinians' work seriously, Haught satisfyingly shows how Christians can and should be both rigorous scientists and faithful believers." Terrence W. Tilley, Professor of Theology and Chair of the Department, Ford-ham University, Bronx NY

"Making Sense of Evolution will appeal to anybody with an interest in the roles of science and religion in the modern world. Just as Haught argues that Darwin simultaneously challenges and enriches theology, HaughtÂ's book challenges and enriches the contemporary discourse between science and religion."

--Kenrick Vezina, ForeWord Reviews, March/April 2010


"Ours is an age dominated by 'nothing but' treatments. Religious conservatives and atheist biologists alike engage in a war-to-the-death between evolution and creation. How refreshing, then, to read this brilliant 'both and' synthesis by one of America's leading experts in the field. Authoritative yet immensely readable, this volume offers a powerful vision of a God big enough to encompass the adventure of evolution, contingency, suffering, and randomness. Somehow, one feels, when the dust of battle settles, something like John Haught's rich description of 'infinite and inexhaustible depth' will remain standing." Philip Clayton, Ingraham Professor, Claremont School of Theology and Claremont Graduate University and author of In Quest of Freedom: The Emergence of Spirit in the Natural World.

    In his effort to integrate evolution and theology, the author propose some interesting though that are debatable. But, the most important issue (according to my understanding of the debate) is the human being as he is today. Haught testify that humains are " products of physical,chemical and evolutionary processes." p.52. Meaning that he is deniyng the traditional christian understanding of the creation of the humain race. The author skilfully reasonned on the matter trying to explain why evolution makes sense regarding humanity. But Sadly, not once did the author faced the issue of "sin" and it's consequence. This is the missing link of the hole book. Being so, it is understandable that the author's definition of redemption is by far different from the christian evangelist understanding. The bottom line...the debate is pointless unless you have a catholic perspective of redemption. Then, and only then will this book make sense and fit into your theology. Saying this, the real debate is not so much regarding evolution and theology but evolution and a proper understanding of God's rest. To bad the author does not tackle that question.
