A Current Debate with Significant Ramifications

The debate about biological origins continues to be hotly contested within the Christian church. Prominent organizations such as Biologos (USA) and Faraday Institute (UK) insist that Christians must yield to an unassailable scientific consensus in favor of contemporary evolutionary theory and modify traditional biblical ideas about the creation of life accordingly. Such organizations promote a view known as “theistic evolution” or “evolutionary creation,” arguing that God used—albeit in an undetectable way—evolutionary mechanisms to produce all forms of life.

In Theistic Evolution: A Scientific, Philosophical, and Theological Critique, two dozen highly credentialed scientists, philosophers, and theologians from Europe and North America have joined forces to contest this proposal. Setting forth the most comprehensive critique of theistic evolution yet produced, this volume compiled under the editorial oversight of J. P. Moreland, Stephen C. Meyer, Christopher Shaw, Ann K. Gauger, and Wayne Grudem documents evidential, logical, and theological problems with theistic evolution, opening the door to scientific and theological alternatives—making the book essential reading for understanding this worldview-shaping issue.
