Keith Miller’s edited book, Perspectives on an Evolving Creation, was recently published by Eerdmans Publishers. It contains many contributions by members of ASA and ACG. The common prevailing view of conflict between evolutionary theory and Christian faith is a false caricature. In reality, many evangelical Christian scientists and theologians have responded positively to evolutionary ideas since the time of Darwin. This volume brings this Christian reflection up to date and takes a relatively comprehensive look at the current science of evolutionary theory from a clearly articulated orthodox Christian perspective. It includes scientific evidence as well as informed theological discussion. Contributors represent a wide variety of disciplines - biology, genetics, geology, paleontology, astronomy, cosmology, philosophy, theology, and the history of science. Many of the contributors are members of ASA and ACG.
The volume is divided into three sections. The first part provides the needed
Biblical, historical and scientific context for the discussions which follow.
The second part of the book lays out the scientific evidence for an evolving
creation. Specialists in a variety of fields summarize how the current evolutionary
view of cosmic, Earth and biological history was constructed. The last part
focuses on philosophical and theological issues commonly raised in connection
with evolution. Issues such as the nature of God's creative activity, the meaning
of the miraculous, the uniqueness of humankind, the basis for creation care,
and the origin of sin, are addressed with both seriousness and sensitivity.
Woven throughout the volume are short meditations designed to direct the reader
toward worshipping the God of providence.
