"An important conversation on post-Darwinian challenges to Christian theology. Sometimes the authors disagree, but more often they provide complementary perspectives to questions concerning original sin, evil, theodicy, and the image of God. This book will challenge the reader to think about--and perhaps to rethink--these key aspects of the Christian faith."
--Denis R. Alexander, The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion, Cambridge; author of Genes, Determinism, and God

"This is not just another book on theology and evolution but a serious attempt by well-established and emerging scholars to grapple with the most pressing theological issues that result from that engagement. It will be extremely useful for teaching and deserves to be fully embedded in theology courses as well as those in theology and science."
--Celia Deane-Drummond, Center for Theology, Science, and Human Flourishing, University of Notre Dame

"Too often reading books on science and religion by multiple authors feels like walking into a cramped room where everyone is shouting. This book feels more like entering a big open hall where there is room to breathe and room to think."
--Jim Stump, BioLogos
