By overcoming the metaphysics assumed in most evolutionary theory, the opposition to faith can be removed. John B. Cobb, Jr. makes this stunning statement the lynchpin of this edited collection. With these essays from some of the most respected minds in several fields - biology, other sciences, philosophy, and theology - Cobb lets us listen in on a thoughtful discussion about evolutionary theory and its relation to religious concerns. The contributors offer ways of broadening evolutionary theory, changing the implications of including human beings in the nature science studies. Intelligent purpose can play a role, allowing for the possibility of God affecting the evolutionary process. Cobb's goal in offering this discussion to interested readers is to encourage the possibility of teaching evolutionary theory in this open way. He argues that, were that the case, theists and nontheists could both accept it, leading to fruitful, rather than combative discussion.
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.
