God after Darwin : a theology of evolution / John F. Haught

 Call number: BT712 .H38 2008

Haught argues that the ongoing debate between Darwinian evolutionists and Christian apologists is fundamentally misdirected: both sides persist in focusing on an explanation of underlying design and order in the universe. Haught suggests that what is lacking in both of these competing ideologies is the notion of novelty, a necessary component of evolution and the essence of the unfolding of the divine mystery. He argues that Darwin’s disturbing picture of life, instead of being hostile to religion as scientific skeptics and many believers have thought it to be actually provides a most fertile setting for mature reflection on the idea of God.
