    This is a very well thought out book. I found it hard to read quickly, because it is very technical. I have found answers to many questions I have had through out the years in this book. There are Scriptural references in many places. I think that all church and school libraries should have this book.

    For most evangelicals wanting a friendly introduction to evolution from an evangelical perspective, Francis Collins "The Language of God" or Daryl Falk's "Coming to Peace with Science" are adequate. However, I suspect that many readers grappling with both the science and the faith implications of biological evolution will need much more. I highly recommend "Perspectives on an Evolving Creation" edited by Keith Miller. This is collection of more than 20 essays written by primarily evangelical specialists including cosmologists, biologists, biochemists, anthropologists, geologists, historians, theologians, philosophers, and psychologists.The entire second section (chapters 6-13) on the scientific evidence and theory is particularly good. Chapter 6 surveys the evidence for an ancient universe; Chapter 7 for an ancient earth. Chapter 8 reviews the evidence in the fossil record for common descent. This is of particular interest to evangelicals who have been repeatedly told that there "are no transitional fossils". Chapter 9 deals with the fact that most body forms appear "instantaneously" in the fossil record during the Cambrian epoch around 500 million years ago. Some anti-evolutionists have interpreted this Cambrian Explosion as evidence for special creation rather than continuous, gradual creation.. Chapters 10 and 11 deal specifically with the evidence for human evolution, while chapter 12 surveys the evidence for evolution from biochemistry. Chapter 13 is a direct rebuttal of Intelligent Design proponents who claim that the random, chance mechanisms of Darwinian evolution could not have resulted in earths amazingly complex organisms.For the rest of this review, please visit my Blog "An Evangelical Dialogue on Evolution".
