Interesting book. He explains evolution then goes one to explain how God used that process and how we need to see the Bible assuming it is true (I do). Death is one issues as it is a key part of species evolving. One thing he says that I am not sure about is that we have no separate soul because science shows that all our thoughts come for stimulating our brain.

A good read but not, for me at least, gripping.
WOnderful view of how Evolution and Scripture are compatible. VERY readable. And Dan Harrell is a fabulous writer and speaker/preacher.
