Do We Have to Choose?
Dr. Denis Alexander is a neuroscientist who believes passionately in both the biblical doctrine of creation and the coherence of evolutionary theory. His book draws on the latest genetic research.
What do we mean by creation and evolution? What are the common scientific objections to evolution? Is evolution atheistic? Who were Adam and Eve? Can the concept of the Fall be reconciled with evolutionary theory? How could a God of love create a world where animals kill each other? What about intelligent design?
The author concludes that the question in the title is a false dichotomy: we do not need to choose, since both are true. ‘Nature is what God does’ – Augustine.
This new edition takes account of the most recent scientific and theological developments and responds to critiques of the first edition.
