Where Darwin Meets the Bible

by Larry Witham
Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2002. 344 pages.

In Where Darwin Meets the Bible, Larry Witham provides a lively and anecdotal account of the contemporary creationist/evolution controversy, based on his wide reading and personal interviews with many of the principal players on both the antievolution and the evolution sides. Reviewing the book for Science, Kenneth R. Miller praised Witham for weaving "the isolated elements of the conflict into a fabric that connects the flow of ideas, events, and politics. Any scientist tempted to believe that the major figures in the anti-evolution movement are half-hearted, insincere, or simply opportunistic in their assault against mainstream science would do well to read this book."
