Is Darwin a tool of Satan or a voice of reason?

2009 is the 150th anniversary of the publication of The Origin of Species and Christians continue to disagree about whether Darwinism should be baptized into our theology or rejected as a tool of Satan.

Debating Darwin:Two Debates-is Darwinism True and Does it Matter? is aimed at Christians on both sides of the debate and hopes to further discussion. In this book two distinct questions are under the microscope

  • 1. Is Darwinism compatible with orthodox Christian faith?
  • 2. Does the scientific evidence support Darwinism?

The book begins with a simple explanation of the neo-Darwinian theory of evolution. Stephen Lloyd then opens the first debate by making a theological and biblical case against Darwinism. He is met in battle by Graeme Finlay and Stephen Pattemore who argue that Christian Scripture and theology are compatible with Darwinism. This book will not tell readers what to think but it will inform the more intelligent debate.
