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. The book gives a take on biology without the lens of evolution and offers a more theistic approach to creation and how it relates to the reader. If one is not a believer in creationism, it ...more

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." But it is a useful read if you're interested in options for Christian scientists and hearing an apologetic from this point of view.

A useful read; was lent to me by a professor. Wright is more of a Biologist than a theologian, but there are lots of theologians out there writing about their perspectives on Biology, so this book has its place. What I appreciate is that it isn't just about arguing against tired old young Earth arguments. Biology, and environmental science, have important ways to inform faith about what is going on in the world. And faith has an important place at the table discussing the ethical dilemmas that s ...more

After I finished The Quantum and the Lotus , I was drawn to this volume. Instead of a conversation between two individuals from two interesting backgrounds—a scientist turned Tibetan Buddhist and a scientist raised Vietnamese Buddhist—the conversation here is within one individual, and it seems on its face to be a much more challenging discourse than the one between "new physics" and Buddhism. Biologists seem to me to be far less amenable to "spiritual" themes than their peers in physics, parti ...more

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. Wright does a more than passable job of presenting what are the most common perspectives of cosmogony and more especially biology and evolution with a Biblical consideration of each. Unfortunately, though, the book, written originally in the late '80s and updated in this edition in 2003, shows its age ...more

I read the 1989 edition, not knowing it had been extensively revised more recently. Dated, but still worth the read.

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.
