Christians frequently resist evolutionary theory, believing it to be incompatible with the core values of their tradition. But what exactly are the tensions between evolution and religious faith in the area of human morality? "Evolution and Ethics examines the burning questions of human morality from the standpoint of Christian thought and contemporary biology, asking where the two perspectives diverge and where they may complement one another.^Representing a significant dialogue between world-class scientists, philosophers, and theologians, this volume explores the central features of biological and religious accounts of human morality, introducing the leading theories and locating the key points of contention. Central to these discussions are the questions of whether human actions are ever genuinely selfless, whether there is something in the moral life that transcends biological function, and whether one can sensibly speak of an overall purpose to the course of evolution.^Certain to engagescholars, students, and general readers alike, "Evolution and Ethics offers a balanced, levelheaded, constructive approach to an often divisive debate.^Contributors: Larry Arnhart^Christopher Boehm^Craig A.

Philip Clayton (Ed)

Philip Clayton is Ingraham (M.A., M.Phil., Ph.D., Yale University) is Professor of Theology at the Claremont School of Theology and professor of philosophy and religion at Claremont Graduate University in Claremont, California. He is also the author of Explanation from Physics to Philosophy: An Essay in Rationality and Religion (Yale) and the Templeton Prize,winning book God and Contemporary Science (Eerdmans).Dr. Clayton's quest is to develop a constructive Christian theology in dialogue with metaphysics, modern philosophy, and science. The demands of this task have led to his work and publications in the theory of knowledge; the history of philosophy and theology; the philosophy of science; physics, evolutionary biology and the neurosciences; comparative theology; and constructive metaphysics. A panentheist, he defends a form of process theology that is hypothetical, dialogical and pluralistic as evident in the edited work In Whom We Live and Move and Have Our Being: Panentheistic Reflections on God's Presence in a Scientific World and The Problem of God in Modern Thought .

Jeffrey Schloss (Ed)
