We are pleased to announce the publication of Finding Ourselves after Darwin: Conversations on the Image of God, Original Sin, and the Problem of Evil, an anthology general edited by the Executive Director of SCIO, Dr Stan Rosenberg. The volume is the product of the BioLogos research group, for which several SCIO staff members form part of the core research team.
Associate edited by Dr Michael Burdett, Rev Dr Michael Lloyd, and Prof Dr Benno van den Toren, the anthology is a wide ranging volume, with chapters discussing the interface between Christian doctrine and evolutionary scientific research.
With contributions from a number of leading academics from various fields, including Richard Swinburne, Gijsbert van den Brink, Christopher M. Hays, and Vince Vitale, the volume addresses a variety of issues, and aims to equip readers from a range of backgrounds, from academics to students, from pastors to laity.
The book has already garnered endorsements from across the academy. Celia Deane-Drummond (professor of theology and director of the Centre for Theology, Science, and Human Flourishing, University of Notre Dame) writes that:
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 […]. This is not only a book for serious scholars in this field, but – given that it encourages open and honest debate – it is also one that will be extremely useful for teaching and deserves to be fully embedded in theology courses as well as those in theology and science.
