Collaborators Mary Katherine Birge, Rodica Stoicoiu, Ryan Taylor, and Brian Henning explore in four illuminating chapters the rich and complex history of the biblical creation accounts, the nature of science investigation, the ethical and philosophical significance of the theory of evolution, and the all-enveloping role of evolutionary theory in the deepening and broadening of faith. In the process, the authors expand readers' understanding of the compatibility between religion and science. Readers will learn that they need not choose religion over science or faith over reason, and that evolution does not threaten but rather enrichs faith.
The authors make it clear to readers that regardless of what religious or non-religious background they come from--regardless of their religious knowledge and experiences--they can discover that science and religion are not enemies, but are companions in the search for truth. The fresh and fascinating Genesis, Evolution and the Search for a Reasoned Faith explores both the nature of science and religion and the intelligent and intimate conversation that is necessary in the search for truth.

In the indispensable Genesis, Evolution, and the Search for a Reasoned Faith, four scholars engage in respectful and reasonable dialogue about the relationship between science and religion. Using as their starting point the ongoing--and often heated--discussion regarding evolutionary theory and the biblical accounts of creation, these scholars, from the academic disciplines of biblical studies, evolutionary biology, philosophy, and systematic theology, present an integrated analysis demonstrating the intimate and not antagonistic relationship of their respective disciplines. Readers will encounter a rich and complex exploration of the history and meaning of the biblical creation accounts, the nature of scientific investigation, the ethical and philosophical significance of the theory of evolution, and the need for a theology that embraces evolution, which deepens and broadens faith.
Reaching out to undergraduate students of all backgrounds, Genesis, Evolution, and the Search for a Reasoned Faith invites readers to discover a common ground where religion and science join in their pursuit of truth.
