The creationist movement rails against evolution with pat, concise little jabs. Charles Foster, a tutor at the University of Oxford, uses biblical exegesis to explain why Intelligent Design is not the answer and refuses to accept quick answers to the deep questions about a creator god. Approaching scientific evidence as a building block, not an attack on the faith, Foster shows that evolutionary theory and its consequences are easily reconciled with Christian orthodoxy. 240 pages, paperback.
If evolutionary theory is correct, what does that say about creator God?
Ever since the famous debate on Darwinism between Huxley and Wilberforce in 1860, there has been little real conversation between the scientific community and much of the Christian world. This book offers the prospect of reconciliation between what are seen as two opposing worldviews.
With remarkable insight and skill, Foster shows that most evolutionary theory and its consequences are easily reconciled with Christian orthodoxy and explores the ethical problems of natural selection in a fresh and invigorating way.
Charles Foster insists on getting to the heart of the topic and succeeds through a scientific and biblical analysis that is second to none. The Selfless Gene has the potential to become required reading for theologians and laypeople alike.
