Editorial Reviews


It's a strange world when science can be used to dismiss the Bible, or when the Bible can be used to reject science - strange because God's people have long affirmed that the world and the Bible comprise God's Two Books. The challenge, then, is how to read the pages of both faithfully and to discern in their coordinated witness the character and aims of God. For its willingness to take up this challenge, and to do so accessibly and sensibly, Reading Genesis after Darwin is a genuinely important book. In their sketches of how Genesis was read before, during, and after the days of Darwin, these authors demonstrate how people might take the natural sciences seriously and continue to turn to Genesis 1-3 as sacred scripture. Joel B. Green, author of Body, Soul, and Human Life: The Nature of Humanity in the Bible (2008).

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The chapters in this book are from a series of public lectures sponsored by the Institute of Advanced Studies of Durham University. Eight of the thirteen authors are from Durham University. The chapters (lectures) are:

1. How Should One Read the Early Chapters of Genesis, in which Walter Moberly concludes that Darwin makes no real difference to one's reading of Genesis.
2. Genesis Before Darwin: Why Scripture Needed Liberating from Science, by Francis Watson
3. The Six Days of Creation According to the Greek Fathers, by Andrew Louth, dwells primarily on St. Basil the Great's understanding of creation and the cosmos.
4. The Hermeneutics of Reading Genesis after Darwin, in which Richard S. Briggs points out that Darwin's writings coincidentally coincided with the discovery of alternative ancient Near Eastern accounts of creation and floods, which also impacted the interpretation of Genesis.
5. What Difference Did Darwin Make?: The Interpretation of Genesis in the Nineteenth Century, in which John Rogerson makes the points that there was no unanimity about the interpretation of Genesis before Darwin, and that Darwin's works did not radically affect the interpretation of Genesis.
6. Genesis and the Scientists: Dissonance among the Harmonizers, by John Hedley Brooke, which quotes and discusses James Clerk Maxwell's warning of the dangers of "introducing sophisticated and transient theories of science into efforts of harmonization."
7. Science and Religion in Nineteenth- and Twentieth-Century Landscape Art, by David Brown
8. Reading Genesis 1-3 in Light of Modern Science, in which David Wilkinson points out that "the real legacy of Darwin was to push Christians to a deeper engagement with the text of Genesis."
