The list author says: "I grew up in a fairly traditional, though not fundamentalist, Christian home in Texas. I struggled to comprehend how to read the bible and "mesh" some of the information in it with what science currently teaches. Hopefully this list will help others in the same predicament, or those that are interested in such topics."
"The former head of the human genome project has written a very good introductory book to the topic of evolution and religion. This book is best suited for those that are just now learning about how evolution and religion can coexist and how they are not mutually exclusive. The book presents supporting evidence for evolution while chronicling Collins' own journey to becoming a believer."
"A must read--Kenneth Miller from Brown University presents ample support for evolutionary theory while also critiquing (giving "the smack down" would be more accurate) the arguments of creationism and intelligent design. At the end of the book, he also shares his thoughts on how evolution and the bible are not mutually exclusive."
"A must read book that focuses on the theological aspects of evolution and Christianity. If you have come to accept that one can in fact be a Christian AND accept evolutionary theory but are wondering how this "jives" with what the bible teaches, read this book. It addresses such questions as how to read the creation account in Genesis, did Adam and Eve really exist, was there a great flood, etc."
