We Have Questions about Evolution—But Is It Safe to Ask?
As children, we fearlessly enter the world with curiosity and a sense of exploration. As we get older, the stakes get higher. We find that new ideas can be disturbing when they don’t fit our view of life or they challenge our current understanding. The potential for disturbance is why many people are afraid to ask questions—or to allow others to ask.
In Thinking about Evolution, molecular biologist Anjeanette “AJ” Roberts, biochemist Fazale Rana, paleoanthropologist Sue Dykes, and analytical philosopher Mark Perez guide us to a place where, once again, we can fearlessly embrace curiosity. We’re invited to ask questions such as, “Is evolution really a problem for the Christian faith?” and “What if evolution is true?” Then, we can wrestle with the answers together, building the confidence that allows us to be more comfortable with others’ questions—as well as our own.
“[A] must-read book for Christians who have the courage to challenge preconceived ideas about evolution and consider how science, philosophy, and theology intersect. Thinking about Evolution is powerful, well-researched, and truly inspiring for people of faith who want to pursue deeper understanding of our world and the God of the Bible.”
