The God of Evolution: A Trinitarian Theology

by Denis Edwards
New York: Paulist Press, 1999. 96 pages.

Edwards, a Roman Catholic theologian, has written a number of titles in the science–religion vein, including work on Christian environmental ethics. In this small, well-written volume, he brings insights from evolution into dialogue with trinitarian theology — the creating, self-limiting, and life-giving God — and also discusses the wisdom of God and the sinfulness of human beings. A good primer in how evolution informs contemporary Christian theology. Edwards is a Lecturer in the School of Theology at Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia.
