9780802848376: Back To Darwin: A Richer Account of Evolution

This book provides a distinctive, radical way beyond the quarrels between evolutionary science and Christian belief. Leading scientists, philosophers, and theologians critically discuss the metaphysical assumptions of neo-Darwinism and offer concrete ways of broadening mainstream evolutionary theory. Their open exchange, moderated by veteran process theologian John B. Cobb, presents a holistic case for evolution that both theists and nontheists can accept.

Review:

Keith Ward
— University of Oxford
"An original and invaluable contribution to the debate on evolution and design, balancing process insights with state-of-the-art scientific contributions."

Niels Henrik Gregersen
— University of Copenhagen
"This is both a primer in current philosophy of evolutionary biology and a new proposal for integrating evolution and religious thinking. Cobb and company listen to the best representatives of neo-Darwinism and analyze the rich tapestry of supplementary theories before they argue for the creative role of biological agency in evolution. A genuinely exciting volume!"

Christian Century
“Offers a solid introduction to both modern evolutionary thought and process theology. . . . Back to Darwin has begun a worthwhile and important project that should be continued and expanded.”
 
Perspectives on Science & Christian Faith
Back to Darwin is recommended.”
 
Reports of the National Center for Science Education
“This volume will be of interest to anyone concerned to explore alternatives to the science-religion debate. . . . [It] deserves a wide readership.”
