"Perhaps the finest book of this genre, a true devotional book, showing the history of literal creationism, the overwhelming evidence for evolution, and the main point- what all this evolution means for our understanding of God and Him revealed in Christ. This is the book that will mold and overturn your theological presuppositions, remaking you into a new creation."
"Devotional book on nature, embracing both evolution and the Bible, not in a literal sense, but rather looking for the deep original meaning of God's words. Bonus- explains how sin and decay can fit with the Bible and evolution."
"A geologist and a pastor, in-laws, look at their own personal stories as they journeyed from a belief in Literal Creationism into evolution. Some great insight into how the early Hebrews would have viewed their own creation myths through Observational Theology."
"Ranging far beyond the Evolution/Literal Creationism debate, Murphy looks at nearly all aspects of bioethics (with the notable exception of abortion), and asks the reader to do more than read, but actually apply the insights to their lives."
"Innovative ways of merging evolution and scripture, reading the words of Jesus in light of biology. An intriguing proof of Jesus' call to not interpret Genesis literally. But difficulties in understanding common approaches of theologians in regards to the miraculous and homosexuality."
"Dr. Towne is attempting to assist the general public who have a limited understanding of science and biology and theology, to understand the real meaning of Genesis. She is uniquely qualified in both theology and biology."
"A very basic look at biology, evolution, and Intelligent Design, looking at how ID fails as both science and theology. A few interesting tidbits of information, well-researched, and a novel take on the subject."
"Some great ideas, particularly of combining Quaker thoughts on consensus and reconciliation with Tillich and Teilhard de Chardin's concepts of a hopeful futuristic evolution and a kenosis within evolution. But the ideas are ultimately little developed, unfulfilled, and more suggestions of thought than anything fully formed."
