Editorial Reviews

Review

"This scientifically informed work makes a major contribution to contemporary theological understanding of evolution. Relying especially on important ideas of Bernard Lonergan, it skillfully debunks both atheistic and religious distortions of Darwin's science." --John F. Haught, Georgetown University

"In this lively and clearly written book, the authors present a clear case for the compatibility of cosmological and evolutionary science and classic belief in God as Creator. Crysdale and Ormerod achieve the complex task of building up insights from physics, biology, metaphysics, theology and ethics in a way that makes it much more manageable for the general reader. Above all this is a book that helps challenge stereotypes set up in the clash between science and Christian religion and allows for a more nuanced classically informed theology to emerge." --Celia Deane-Drummond, University of Notre Dame

For those who are looking for a clear and thoughtful analysis of the relationship between God and God's creation, this is a must read. This book helps clarify the synergy between science and our Creator God. I am buying a copy for my son, the atheist, because it addresses some of Dawkins' arguments against the existence of God much, much more articulately than I ever could!

Excellent job of developing the gray area between the extremes where most people live with their faith and understanding of the physical world. It isn't just evolution, and it isn't just the God of the gaps. These are all addressed, and well developed. Only problem I had was with the part on evil; they didn't make a good case that evil is NOT an entity to itself, rather leaning on Augustine that it is a lack of love at different degrees. Otherwise, they give us good groundwork to make our own assessments, and point to possibilities of answers science and religion may find in the future. Fun read as well as good execution--not too laborious as they warned in the intro. Would give it a 4.5 if I could.
