Science, Creation and the Bible: Reconciling Rival Theories of Origins

by Richard F. Carlson and Tremper Longman III

Downers Grove (IL): InterVarsity Press Academic, 2010; 144 pages

Carlson and Longman’s book is “a short introduction aimed at reconciling Christian and scientific theories of origins that deals specifically with the Bible and its interpretation,” by a physicist and a biblical scholar, reviewer Justin D. Topp writes. Despite reservations about the book’s omission of details for the sake of brevity, Topp recommends it “for conservative Evangelicals who have no academic background in science and religion or for high school students and young college students from a similar Evangelical background.”
