Creation or Evolution: Do We Have To Choose?

Andrew Halestrap writes in Christian Today: 

Many scientists, championed by the likes of Richard Dawkins, argue with an almost evangelical zeal that science has all but disproved God. As these views begin to take root in society it is vital that Christians are able to expose the flaws and inconsistencies in the underlying arguments.

Yet this task is made harder by some Christians whose desire to uphold the authority of Scripture has led them to dismiss current scientific understanding of the Universe and especially the theory of Evolution.

For many scientists such views are likely to reinforce their dismissal of the Christian faith as merely an outdated superstition. Unfortunately, many books that address this issue appear to generate more heat than light as they seek to justify their own polarised position and rubbish the opposition.

Denis Alexander’s “Creation or Evolution – Do We Have to Choose?” is a most welcome exception and deserves to be widely read. Denis is the Chairman of the Molecular Immunology Programme at The Babraham Institute in Cambridge and an internationally respected scientist. As a Christian he believes passionately that the Bible is God’s authoritative word for man, yet his scientific studies provide him with overwhelming evidence for the Theory of Evolution.

“almost evangelical zeal.” That is too gentle. Creation or Evolution: Do We Have To Choose?’
