Publisher's Description

Evolution Is Not the Bible's Enemy

Saving Darwin explores the history of the controversy that swirls around evolution science, from Darwin to current challenges, and shows why—and how—it is possible to believe in God and evolution at the same time.

Editorial Reviews

“Sensitively written and convincingly argued. . . . [A] truly courageous work.”
“Karl Giberson skillfully unravels the tangled skein of argument about creation and evolution, showing that there need be no incompatibility between Christianity and Darwinism. His writing is lively, in a style that is both informal and informed. This is a book that many will find helpful.”
Giberson attacks the conundrum [of evolution] with eloquence and clarity.
“One of the best books of 2008”
“Giberson . . . provides an edifying summary of the tenets and the flaws of modern creationism . . . and raises a valuable alarm about the dangers facing American science and culture.”
“Karl Giberson skillfully unravels the tangled skein of argument about creation and evolution, showing that there need be no incompatibility between Christianity and Darwinism. His writing is lively, in a style that is both informal and informed. This is a book that many will find helpful.”
“A much-needed book . . . a powerful contribution.”
“Giberson has a native understanding of how conservative Christians feel and think about evolution . . . he sketches an engaging historical narrative.
Giberson posesses a boundless inquisitiveness typical of many scientiests, but also displays the wry wit of a seasoned polemicist. He seems to know how to counteract your best arguments before you have even made them.
“An intensely personal account of [Giberson’s] intellectual journey from creationism to the acceptance of evolution . . . By situating his own story in the context of larger social and scientific developments, Giberson’s book can serve as a guide for other Christians on a similar trek.”
“A poignant account of [Giberson’s] Christian pilgrimage from Creationist to Evolutionist. He offers a sympathetic historical analysis laced with trenchant criticism of both misguided intelligent design advocates and hard core atheists.”
“Giberson makes the case, persuasively and with considerable wit, that there’s no irreconcilable conflict between robust Christian faith and evolutionary biology, rightly understood. This is a wonderfully readable book: humane, modest, and wise.”
“Karl Giberson here presents a poignant account of his Christian pilgrimage from Creationist to Evolutionist. He offers a sympathetic historical analysis laced with trenchant criticism of both misguided intelligent design advocates and hard core atheists.”

    MANY Christians and evangelical leaders (Old Earth Creationists OECs) DO in fact believe that God created the universe and earth and that they are both VERY ancient (a 4.5 billion-year-old earth and a 13.73 billion-year-old universe), yet they do not support Darwinian evolution or its offshoots. WHY does the media never report this? Because it is so easy to make those who believe in a 10,000-year-old earth and universe (YECs) look scientifically ignorant as well as ridiculous (and understandably so), and also that by linking this YEC belief to the Bible, they attempt to portray the Bible as being ridiculous as well. MANY notable evangelical Christian leaders hold to an Old-Earth Creationist (OEC) position of an ancient (many billions-of-years-old) universe. The precise wording of many Bible Scriptures make the OEC position something that many conservative theologians agree upon. Old Earth Creationists believe that God created the universe and life through very long periods of creation events that included various periods of new species, extinctions, and subsequent species. This is supported by the scientific and fossil record and is in agreement with an enlightened view of reading Scripture. They (RTB) believes in much mainstream science and in an ancient universe, and that the Bible is Gods word, is accurate, historic and that it points to Christ as the Son of God.

    This book will stretch your preconceptions about Christianity and evolution. This is one of many books writen in the past five years by working scientists who discuss their roles as Christians and evolutionists. This author includes an enlightening review of how creationism gained such a strong place in "fundamentalism". Gilberson takes both creationists and evolutionsists to task for their excesses in criticizing each other and ignoring their own faults. A very enjoyable read for the Christian layman.
