Interesting read. The whole purpose is to look at biology from another worldview and to think differently (maybe) than one already does. One who is a believer in creationism can gather a bit more understanding on the subject and how biology and the bible mix, while still getting snippets of other world views.

Meh.

He makes a case as a Christian for doing biology with methodological naturalism and I found it only somewhat compelling. Even less compelling was his argument in favor of "creationary evolution."

Professor Wright is a better biologist than writer, as one sees in this book. Not badly written, it is still a bit of a plod at times, and he proves a bit too fond of the exclamation mark as well.

Unfortunately, though, the book, written originally in the late '80s and updated in this edition in 2003, shows its age ...more

One of the best books I've read, and definitely the clearest and best on the subject I have encountered so far. I strongly agree with the author.

Though not a terrible book, the ideas addressed in it are very interesting. However, I hope to find better books addressing the same issue.
