Summary

For courses in evolution, creationism or as a supplemental item in biology and/or biological anthropology courses.
Darwin and the Bible helps readers to understand the nature, history and passions behind the debate over scientific and religious versions of creation and human origins.


Darwin and the Bible: The Cultural Confrontation is about the history and nature of the disputes over human origins that arose with the publication of Charles Darwin’s book, Origin of Species in 1859.  The readings in the text provide the, historical, theological, social and political backgrounds of the debate.


Rather than trying to demonstrate the truth of Darwinian evolution, this book seeks to help the reader understand why the debate over Darwin and the Bible remains as contentious as ever.  The book seeks to examine why Darwin’s theory of evolution appears threatening to some people, and, likewise, to help understand why some scientists often react with such emotion to challenges to their views. The contributors include biological scientists, social scientists, social historians, and proponents of the importance of God, faith, and religion in peoples lives.
