I Love Jesus and I Accept Evolution

by Denis O. Lamoureux
Eugenie (OR): Wipf and Stock, 2009. 184 pages.

A condensed version of Lamoureux’s Evolutionary Creation: A Christian Approach to Evolution, I Love Jesus and I Accept Evolution is “a book that calls for evangelicals who view their theology as robust to accept no less in their science, and to recognize the theological resources within their own tradition that allow them to do so,” writes reviewer Dennis R. Venema. Theologically, “Lamoureux certainly knows the territory, and he goes chapter-and-verse with all comers”; his discussion of Paul is particularly noteworthy. Scientifically, the material is adequate, although “a stronger treatment of evolutionary genomics would have been a benefit.”
