Terri Martinson Elton
“Confused. Disoriented. Overwhelmed. Such is the experience today of many disciples, congregations, and pastors struggling to find our bearings as we live through times of massive cultural and religious change. Elton’s book helps us all to find the way forward when the old maps are outdated or don’t cover the territory we now find ourselves in. We discover here a spiritual process for moving forward in faith through deep engagement with the love of God attested to in Scripture and through participation in a set of faith-orienting practices. We need Elton’s spiritual GPS for such a time as this.” –Gordon S. Mikoski, Princeton Theological Seminary, and editor, Theology Today
Gijsbert Van den Brink
A theologically serious treatment of the challenges that evolutionary theory poses for traditionally orthodox Christian faith
Many books aim to help beginners explore whether or not evolutionary science is compatible with Christian faith. This one probes more deeply to ask: What do we learn from modern evolutionary science about key issues that are of special theological concern? And what does Christian theology, especially in its Reformed expressions, say about those same key issues?
Noted theologian Gijsbert van den Brink begins by describing the layers of meaning in the phrase “evolutionary theory” and exploring the question of how to interpret the Bible with regard to science. He then works through five key areas of potential conflict between evolutionary theory and Christian faith, thus covering all relevant issues, spelling out scientific findings and analyzing Christian doctrinal concerns. His conclusion: although some traditional doctrinal interpretations must be adjusted, evolutionary science is no obstacle to classical Christian faith.
