Can religion survive Darwinism? Do scientists entering the lab or heading for the field have to bracket, or reject outright, all religious commitments and convictions? Trenchantly laying out the evidence for natural selection and carefully following and underscoring the themes and theses of Genesis, L. E. Goodman traces the historical and conceptual backgrounds of todaya (TM)s evolution controversies, revealing the deep complementarities of religion and the life sciences. Solidly researched and replete with scientific case studies, vignettes from intellectual history, and thoughtful argument, Creation and Evolution forthrightly exposes the strengths and weaknesses of todaya (TM)s polarized battle camps. Religious and scientific fundamentalisms, Goodman shows, obscure the real biblical message and distort the deepest insights and richest findings of Darwinian science.

Industry Reviews

'Many of us feel that the time is long past due for declaring a truce in the war between evolution and theism. But making a cogent and sensible case for this conviction is not as easy as it sounds, so we cannot but welcome the decency and elegance which Goodman's wise and widely informed deliberations come to our aid.' -- Nicholas Rescher, University of Pittsburgh, USA
