Exploring Faith and Reason: The Reconciliation of Christianity and Biological Evolution

Bruce Glass. DBG, $14.99 paper (296p) ISBN 978-0-578-11047-9
In this sometimes elegant, sometimes stilted work, Glass draws heavily on the efforts of theologians and scientists to provide a useful overview of evolution and Christian beliefs about the nature of God, humankind, and the Bible. Glass asserts that "natural processes" are "fully consistent with the essential tenets of the Christian faith." Along the way, the author makes some naïve generalizations, and, after his long survey of the history of evolutionary biology, comes up with the unremarkable observations that "we find indications of an evolving world all around us." In the end, Glass fails to demonstrate how evolutionary biology and Christianity can be reconciled, but sings a hymn to God the Creator: "We certainly need not retreat from a conviction of God's providence and our marvel at the glory of God's creation."
