5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling case for 'more to life than Darwinism?', 27 Nov 2001
This review is from: Darwin on Trial (Paperback)
A respected law professor turned theologian, Johnson presents a fascinating and logical examination of Darwinism and more current forms of evolutionary theory. Johnson's book is refreshingly free from blanket statements about his subject. He seeks to open the debate on evolution, acknowledging the contributions of the scientific community at large whilst recognising the limited 'proof' that the available evidence provides.
For anyone interested in a subversive but balanced view of Darwinist evolutionary theory as ideology, or anyone clinging to the hope that their purpose in life is more than producing reproductive offspring, this is compelling reading. It ought to be compelling and challenging reading for Stephen Jay Gould and Richard Dawkins fans too - if they are brave enough to read it. Johnson has become Gould and Dawkins' nominated nemesis - due, in no small part to the strength and profound logic of his arguments. Definitely worthy of your further investigation.
