Intelligent Design Creationism and Its Critics

edited by Robert T. Pennock
Cambridge, MA: Bradford, 2001. 825 pages.

The publisher writes that Pennock's anthology on intelligent design creationism (IDC) "contains articles previously published in specialized, hard-to-find journals, as well as new contributions. Each section contains introductory background information, articles by influential creationists and their critics, and in some cases responses by the creationists. The discussions cover IDC as a political movement, IDC's philosophical attack on evolution, the theological debate over the apparent conflict between evolution and the Bible, IDC's scientific claims, and philosopher Alvin Plantinga's critique of naturalism and evolution. The book concludes with Pennock's 'Why Creationism Should Not Be Taught in the Public Schools.'"
