Theology needs to engage what recent developments in the study of evolution mean for how we understand moral behavior. How does the theological concept of holiness connect to contemporary understandings of evolution? If genetic explanations of altruism fall short, what role should we give to environmental explanations and free will? Likewise, how do genetic explanations relate to theological accounts of human goodness and holiness? In this groundbreaking work, Matthew Hill uses the lens of Wesleyan ethics to offer a fresh assessment of the intersection of evolution and theology. He shows that what is at stake in this conversation is not only the future of the church but also the fine-tuning of human evolution.

In the ongoing debate about evolution, science and faith face off. But the truth is both sides are right and wrong.

In one corner: Atheists like Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, and Jerry Coyne. They insist evolution happens by blind random accident. Their devout adherence to Neo-Darwinism omits the latest science, glossing over crucial questions and fascinating details.

In the other corner: Intelligent Design advocates like William Dembski, Stephen Meyer, and Michael Behe. Many defy scientific consensus, maintaining that evolution is a fraud and rejecting common ancestry outright.

There is a third way. Evolution 2.0 proves that, while evolution is not a hoax, neither is it random nor accidental. Changes are targeted, adaptive, and aware. You'll discover:

  • How organisms re-engineer their genetic destiny in real time
  • Amazing systems living things use to re-design themselves
  • Every cell is armed with machinery for editing its own DNA
  • The five amazing tools organisms use to alter their genetics
  • 70 years of scientific discoveries--of which the public has heard virtually nothing!

  • Perry Marshall approached evolution with skepticism for religious reasons. As an engineer, he rejected the concept of organisms randomly evolving. But an epiphany--that DNA is code, much like data in our digital age--sparked a 10-year journey of in-depth research into more than 70 years of under-reported evolutionary science. This led to a new understanding of evolution--an evolution 2.0 that not only furthers technology and medicine, but fuels our sense of wonder at life itself.

    This book will open your eyes and transform your thinking about evolution and God. You'll gain a deeper appreciation for our place in the universe. You'll see the world around you as you've never seen it before.

    Evolution 2.0 pinpoints the central mystery of biology, offering a multimillion dollar technology prize at naturalcode.org to the first person who can solve it.

    Christians throughout history have believed that God reveals himself both through Scripture and nature. The metaphor of God's Two Books is often used to represent these two divine revelations.

    The Book of God's Words is the Bible. Scripture reveals inerrant spiritual truths. These include, the God of Christianity is the Creator of the heavens and the earth, the creation is very good, and only humans are created in the Image of God (Gen. 1:1, 27, 31).

    The Book of God's Works is the physical world. Nature declares God's glory, eternal power, and divine nature (Ps. 19:1; Rom. 1:20). Through the gift of science, our Creator has blessed us with the ability to explore and understand the structure, operation, and origin of his creation.

    Together God's Two Books offer us a complementary divine revelation of who created the world and how he created it.

    A majority of Americans view science and religion as being in conflict, according to the Pew Research Center. Christians and non-Christians alike share this view, yet if this perceived conflict misrepresents the relationship between modern science and Christian faith, then it is both unhelpful and unnecessary today.

    In Evolution: Scripture and Nature Say Yes, theologian and scientist Denis O. Lamoureux reviews several options for embracing biblical Christianity and findings of science, including biological evolution. Holding to a high view of Scripture alongside an expert appreciation for scientific discovery, Lamoureux further outlines a way to understand passages referring to the natural world in the Bible and also demonstrates how modern science can point toward God.

    Lamoureux shares his own story along the way, recounting struggles many readers will relate to on his journey toward PhDs in both theology and biology and a fruitful relationship between the two.

    Topics in this book include:

  • A biblical model of intelligent design in nature based on Psalm 19 and Romans 1.
  • Examination of the ancient science in Scripture, such as a flat earth and 3-tier universe.
  • Comparison of different Christian views on origins--young earth creation, progressive creation (old earth creation), and evolutionary creation.
  • Criticisms of the atheistic interpretation of evolution held by Richard Dawkins and his belief that intelligent design is merely an illusion.
  • Galileo's peaceful relationship between Scripture and nature, including his view that "the intention of the Holy Spirit [in the Bible] is to teach us how one goes to heaven, and not how heaven goes."
  • Darwin's religious beliefs and evidence of the impact that intelligent design had on him throughout his life, along with his claim, "It seems to me absurd to doubt that a man may be an ardent Theist [personal God] and an evolutionist."
  • Believers wanting to honor God's Two Books--Scripture and Nature--faithfully and without conflict will find an excellent introduction in Evolution: Scripture and Nature Say Yes.

    Readers will find author Kenneth Poppe a knowledgeable, easy-to-follow guide as he focuses on the origin and nature of the species called "Homo sapiens"--man.

    Presented with energy and humor, this up-to-date resource pulls no punches in its conclusion. All aspects of humanity that make us unique among life-forms, argues Poppe, were designed and implemented at the will of a supernatural Being. This is where the evidence points.

    With a special gift for helpful analogies, good examples, and clear explanations, the author blows the lid off Darwinian myths surrounding issues like evidence for prehistoric man structures and behaviors thought to be remnants of earlier evolutionary steps the beginning of speech the origin of morality

    "Highly readable for anyone with a general background and superb for students and parents, as well as homeschoolers and educators who wish to present a complete picture of origins science."

    A scientist explores the harmony between Christian faith and science

    Though some Christians and many skeptics see science and Christianity as locked in a never-ending battle, geologist Gregg Davidson contends that there is tremendous harmony between Scripture and modern science. Many apparent conflicts arise when the Bible is interpreted apart from its literary and historical contexts, but when these are taken into account, most alleged clashes resolve.

    Proceeding from a belief that Scripture is inspired and without error and that God's creation should inform how we interpret the Bible, Davidson shows that Scripture and science need not disagree on issues like the age of the earth, Adam and Eve, Noah's flood, the origin and development of life, and numerous related topics. Rather, Christians can rejoice at how God's glory is revealed in both the Bible and the natural world.

    "Davidson is the best sort of friend to science and to faith. He explores the cosmos and the Scriptures with the rigorous curiosity of a scientist and the probing faith of a theologian. And as with the best of friends, Davidson challenges us to go deeper, think harder, and walk away with a fresher, fuller faith. The important questions of life and faith are always hard. Davidson makes the effort worthwhile. Here is a treasure chest of information about the world of the Bible and the world that the Bible describes." --Walter Kim, President Elect, National Association of Evangelicals

    "Friend of Science, Friend of Faithis a highly engaging, step-by-step analysis not only of the compatibility, but also of the mutually-enriching interaction of mainstream science with the Bible. Brilliantly written to communicate significant biblical and scientific concepts to a general audience, I have not seen a more helpful book for those who seek clarification on how to reconcile belief in an inerrant Bible with scientific knowledge. Davidson's gifted ability to put complex notions into simple, everyday language makes the book a joy to read and a downright fulfilling experience. If someone from a biblically conservative background with time to read only one book was to ask me for a single recommendation, this is the one I'd suggest."--Darrel R. Falk, Professor of Biology, emeritus, Point Loma Nazarene University

    "Gregg Davidson has produced a remarkable book. While many writers argue that science and biblical faith are compatible, few have articulated with such clarity a method of resolving apparent conflicts between them. With the patience and sensitivity of a good teacher, Davidson begins with the Bible before debating the scientific merits of any particular claim, affirming its truth while also allowing fresh questions to add to our understanding. Finding no substantive conflict between scientific claims and Scripture, Davidson goes on to describe in accessible, engaging language what modern science has revealed concerning the origins of the universe and first life, the age of the Earth, and evolution. His love and respect for God's Word are evidenced throughout, and his many examples drawn from history and the natural sciences reveal his love and respect for God's works. Davidson's critiques of Creation Science and Intelligent Design are direct and insightful, intended not just to poke holes in opposing views, but always with a heart to help readers see the richness of God's written Word and the beauty of his natural creation. This is a great book to hand to your pastor or a student."--Deborah Haarsma, President, BioLogos

    "In this ambitious book, Professor Davidson aptly breaks down false dichotomies that exist between science and faith, taking the reader on a spirited expedition through history, Bible and theology, origins, and contemporary battles raging along the 'conflict thesis' fault lines. As a leader of a Christian study center at a large public university, I am grateful to have Gregg Davidson as an adept guide for this journey. Friend of Science, Friend of Faith is a greatly needed resource for the church today."--John R. Terrill, Executive Director, Upper House campus ministry

    "As a campus minister at a large public university, I am all too familiar with the challenge Christian students like 'Riley' face [described in Davidson's introduction] when confronted by apparent conflicts between Scripture and science. Other students may be hindered from embracing faith in Christ for these same reasons. Friend of Science, Friend of Faith provides a cogent and remarkably comprehensive guide seeking to resolve these conflicts. I highly recommend this book not only to students, but also to pastors, parents, educators, and others concerned about the perceived divide between faith and science. We can be friends of both. Indeed, in our complex and conflicted times, we need to be."--Ben Sanders, Director, Arizona Center for Christian Studies

    "This is a book I will use to equip our congregation and educate our community. Gregg loves Christ and the church. He loves God's Word and the works of God's hand. Gregg's book testifies to his vocation: a follower of Jesus who is a scientist. "--Byron Townsend, Pastor, Grace Mid-City Church

    "Does science prove or disprove the Christian faith? Neither, because the question is beyond what science can address. However, Davidson demonstrates that science and Scripture--when both are properly interpreted--display a remarkable congruence. Here is a book that takes both seriously, and it exhibits the confidence that the God who created the universe is the one who reveals himself in the Bible."--Ken Keathley, Senior Professor of Theology, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

    " The title, Friend of Science, Friend of Faith, emphasizes the essential starting point: listening carefully to God's works and his Word. Davidson shows great sensitivity to readers who might have been taught that science and Christian faith are on a collision course. By leading readers through evidence from geoscience (Davidson's specialty), astrophysics, and biology, and a careful reading of Scripture, this book will be invaluable in helping people to see that science and Christian faith can be friends, and need never be foes."--Jeff Hardin, Chair, Department of Integrative Biology, University of Wisconsin
