Three Views on Creation and Evolution (Counterpoints free pdf For Christians, the issues raised by the different views on creation and evolution are challenging. Can a "young earth" be reconciled with a universe that appears to be billions of years old? Does scientific evidence point to a God who designed the universe and life in all its complexity? "Three Views on Creation and Evolution" deals with these and similar concerns as it looks at three dominant schools of Christian thought. Proponents of young earth creationism, old earth creationism, and theistic evolution, each present their different views, tell why the controversy is important, and describe the interplay between their understandings of science and theology. Each view is critiqued by various scholars, and the entire discussion is summarized by Phillip E. Johnson and Richard H. Bube. With its respectful and thought-provoking dialogue between the contributors, the Counterpoints forum offers an ideal approach for you to consider the strengths and weaknesses of each stance.
