Serge EthierCherstey, Quebec, CanadaAge: 45-54Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5January 24, 2012Serge EthierCherstey, Quebec, CanadaAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2In 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.
