Is a thoroughly Christian and biblically informed doctrine of creation compatible with widely held conclusions of modern science, especially biology? For Darrel R. Falk, this is not just an abstract question but one with which he has personally wrestled. A professor of biology, Falk brings together his biblically based understanding of creation and the most current research in biology. The result of his efforts to acknowledge the validity of science and the authority of Scripture is a new paradigm for relating the claims of science to the truths of Christianity. Written with the undergraduate student in mind, this book nonetheless will help anyone who is looking for a place to stand in the creation-evolution debate, fearful that they'll have to choose between intellectual integrity and the faith of the church. Calling for charitable discussions within the church, Falk shows how an original and ongoing interaction of God with creation is fully reconcilable with the kinds of development identified by current biological science.

Exactly the book I needed on this subject!
The author did an excellent job of presenting the data that has lead him to his conclusion for an old earth and gradual creation. I appreciated the honor and gentleness that he maintained for the young earth creationism perspective.
I really needed this book to help me separate the data and science for gradual creation (or the secular term: evolution) from the hostility towards God and Faith.
Highly recommend this book to any Christian who desires to be intellectually honest within the realm of science and data without having their belief in God and the supernatural that cannot be measured or quantified by science attacked and ridiculed.
