Top Customer Reviews
I particularly enjoyed pieces by T.A.Noble and Henri Blocher. I felt R.J.Berry's contributuon entitled 'Did Darwin Dethrone Humankind?' actually evaded this question. Professor Berry only mentions Darwins' 1871 work 'The Descent of Man' twice in this 44 page chapter; its content is never analysed or quoted in consideration of the question being addressed. I felt this was a weakness as 'The Descent' is probably more relevant than 'The Origin' when considering whether or not Darwin did dethrone humankind.
Nevertheless, I found this a thought provoking and thoroughly absorbing series of essays and I would recommend the collection to all christians interested in seriously engaging with the origins debate.
Balanced, well supported by clear evidence, accessible.
The authors of this compendium agree that there is need to stress the harmony between Christian belief and modern science. The editors conclusion is: "Indeed the Christian doctrine of creation provided the ground for the rise of science."
In particular there is interesting material for those wishing to explore ideas of "The Fall" and "Original Sin" in the context of evolutionary science.
