Making Sense of Evolution: Darwin, God, and the Drama of Life

by John F. Haught
Louisville (KY): Westminster John Knox Press, 2010. 163 pages.

“Plenty of books claim to make sense of evolution,” writes reviewer George L. Murphy. “Haught’s wants to make sense of Darwinian evolution and belief in God together and to show that only in that way can the drama of life be fully appreciated.” While the book is unlikely to sway conservative Christians who will regard it as abandoning religious fundamentals, “it can be hoped that open-minded scientific naturalists, while perhaps not convinced of the truth of Haught’s construction, will recognize that there are coherent ways to understand Darwin and deity together.”
