Well written, in a fluent and readable style and comprehensible to the non-scientist.
Dr. Peter J. Hickman
This book is a condensed (184 pages vs. 493 pages) and much more affordable version of Lamoureux's 2008 book, Evolutionary Creation: A Christian Approach to Evolution.
John Lang
This makes it easier to argue that biological evolution is just another natural process that God used to create the current universe.

This book is a condensed (184 pages vs. 493 pages) and much more affordable version of Lamoureux's 2008 book, Evolutionary Creation: A Christian Approach to Evolution. My detailed review of that book is available at [...] Because it is more concise, this new book is much more accessible to its target audience; namely, conservative Christians who are wrestling with the Creation/Evolution controversy. I believe it fills a much needed gap in the popular literature aimed at the same audience. Specifically, I believe it delivers the hermeneutical guidance that is lacking in most of the other books addressing evolution from a Christian perspective.

I could personally relate to the "journey" that the author and many other conservative Christians have made in wrestling with the creation/evolution controversy. I abandoned the "young earth creationist" position in the 1980's after observing evidence I considered conclusive regarding the age of the earth and the universe. For Christians who may still be pondering that issue, I believe The Bible, Rocks and Time: Geological Evidence for the Age of the Earth is probably the definitive text for reconciling scripture with an "Old Earth" (4.5+/- billion years). For over twenty years, I embraced "Progressive (Old Earth) Creationism". I did not consider evolution to be compatible with the Christian faith. As a result, I never seriously considered the possibility that secular authors might actually be right about evolution.

Format: Paperback
In this book, Denis Lamoureux presents a shorter version of his belief that evolution and evangelical Christianity are compatible. It is based on: (1) God's dual revelation of Himself in two divine books, the Book of God's Words (the Bible) and the Book of God's Works (the natural world), (2) the failure of scientific concordism (which states that the Bible's statements about science are always accurate), and (3) the hermeneutical principle of accommodation (God condescends to reveal Himself in ways that human beings can understand). This leads Denis Lamoureux to the conclusion that the events recorded in Genesis 1-3 never literally happened. The rest of his book makes a biblical case for this conclusion.

In his discussion of the term 'evolution,' he gives a very general definition, without even mentioning descent with modification by means of mutation and natural selection. He wants to apply the term evolution to cosmology and geology as well as to biology. This makes it easier to argue that biological evolution is just another natural process that God used to create the current universe. However, this increases the confusion over the term 'evolution.' On the other hand, his discussion of the term 'creation' is excellent.

He presents "three basic models for the manifestation of both the Image of God and human sin during the evolutionary process" and embraces gradual polygenism, which asserts that the Image of god and human sinfulness were gradually and mysteriously manifested across many generations of evolving ancestors. He then presents four arguments for moving beyond the sin-death problem with a new approach to Romans 5 & 8 and 1 Corinthians 15.

Denis Lamoureux takes the reader on a journey through the theological and scientific minefield dealing with origins. Rather than espousing the common "warfare model" of the relationship between religion and science, he shows how one can illuminate the other. Lamoureux argues that the science in the Bible -- biological, cosmological, and the like -- was the best science-of-the-day -- and that the modern tendency to read science back into the Bible is a huge mistake. Lamoureux advocates a separation of the Bible's inerrant Message of Faith from its incidental descriptions of the physical and biological world. He proposes what he calls "evolutionary creation" (also called theistic evolution). A good overview of a contentious debate and of the various positions espoused.

The author took great pains to carefully and logically present his position. I do not fully agree with him but I appreciated his thoroughness.
I would not recommend it to just anyone; possibly someone well versed in the Scriptures and in Science would appreciate it.

I really enjoyed reading Denis' book! I did not find it too difficult to read / understand and it has certainly sparked my interest in learning more about evolution and God. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that is struggling with how one can make sense of the scientific evidence and biblical inerrancy.

Format: Paperback
This is a good book. Well written and easy to follow. It provides a variety of examples of how the earth is very old and examples of how life evolved over the many years on earth. I am left with the feeling though that the author is simply trying to twist his view of christanity (a creator with a specific purpose) around what he knows to be scientific fact (an old earth which has produced life through evolution). It certainly provides a different perspective to the young earth creation account.
