Summary
"Adopting a balanced perspective on the subject, Michael Ruse offers a serious examination of both Darwinism and Christianity. He covers a wide range of topics, from the Scopes Monkey Trial to claims about the religious significance of extraterrestrials. He deals with major figures in the current science/religion debate (Richard Dawkins, Stephen Jay Gould, and E.O. Wilson on the science side, as well as Arthur Peacocke, Robert J. Russell, and Keith Ward on the religion side). He considers in detail the claims of the new creationism and reveals some surprising parallels between Darwinian materialists and traditional thinkers such as Saint Augustine." "Michael Ruse argues that, although it is at times difficult for a Darwinian to embrace Christian belief, it is by no means inconceivable. At the same time he suggests ways in which a Christian believer should have no difficulty accepting evolution in general, and Darwinism in particular."--Jacket
