Theology After Darwin

R J BerryMichael S Northcott

$25.99

Paperback
Scientists and theologians explore what Christian theology might look like if it took Darwin seriously.

^Celebrating the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth (12th Feb 2009) and the 150th anniversary of the publication of The Origin of Species (24th Nov 2009), this volume explores the critical question:

  • 'What are the implications for theology if Darwin was right?'
At a popular level theistic evolutionists do not usually get beyond the suggestion that God could have worked through the mechanism of natural selection. Of course he could, but there is so much more to say! If some version of evolution is embraced by Christians this requires them to rethink a whole range of theological issues. To that end, this book gathers together scientists and theologians to reflect on what Christian theology might look like if it took Darwin seriously
