Creation or Evolution: Do We Have to Choose?

by Denis Alexander
Oxford: Monarch Books, 2008. 384 pages.

Addressing primarily his fellow evangelicals, Denis Alexander argues, "Personal saving faith through Christ in the God who has brought all things into being and continues to sustain them by his powerful Word, is entirely compatible with the Darwinian theory of evolution, which, as a matter of fact, provides the paradigm within which all current biological research is carried out." Francis Collins writes, "Denis Alexander the scientist-believe argues convincingly and lovingly that a committed Christian need not fear evolution, but can embrace it as God's awesome means of creation." The author is the director of the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion, St. Edmund's College, Cambridge University.
