About "Christians and Evolution: Christian Scholars and Thinkers Change Their Mind"
The debate surrounding creation and evolution divides Christians, particularly evangelicals. It has been a stumbling block for young Christians and a point of contention for the new Atheists. Professor R. J. Berry assembles a wide range of distinguished contributors, all convinced, committed and orthodox Christian believers, each of whom has undertaken a conceptual journey, based on sound science and careful theology, from a creationist position to one in which God's creation and the processes of evolution are properly and credibly integrated. Christians and Evolution is a luminous volume that offers a pathway for doubters, sceptics and conservative Christians to embrace the overall scientific consensus of the evolutionary approach, while holding solidly and without reservation to the doctrines of God's creation and God's omnipotence. This text is a must-read for anyone interested in the creation v evolution debate.

Do you believe God lacks imagination, shared diseases means shared ancestry between humans and chimps, and that wolves and lambs in the new heavens will be unrecognizable because one is not eating the other? Those are ideas expounded in this book. I believe that God wrote the Bible for all generations of made-in-His-image humans, not for dumb humanoids so that we need to edit it now that we have "evolved" great intelligence. If you need an "exhibit A" book about evolution-believing Christians ... this would be it, otherwise I do not recommend it. Our copy is heading for the recycling bin.
