Great as introduction/overview/reflection
This book contains three presentations by their proponents of the three main Christian views on origin. Each presentation is followed by an assessment by four commentators (each time the four same). The book does not deal so much with the natural sciences, but rather with the theological and philophical sciences. Nothing new nor difficult, but interesting to reveal the paradigma behind the views, grossly speaking: one specific interpretation of Genesis for Young Earth Creationism, Christian theism for Old Earth creationism, and deism (!) for "Theistic" Evolution, the latter being the most revealing: Van Till does not want to allow for God to intervene in the development of nature, but seems commited to the idea that God winded everything beforehand so as to get the good results, "prior" to t=0: this is remniscent of the clock-world of the deists where God did not have to intervene anymore once he had started the clock. This will be an excellent book for those who want an introduction or overview of the main views among Christians, as well as a reflection.
Terrific Book; Great for Science and Religion Buffs
This is an outstanding book. Moreland and Reynolds have assembled a highly-qualified team of Christian scholars--including scientists, philosophers, and theologians--who disagree on this issue. The level of discourse is high level, yet accessible to the interested reader. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is confused on where one ought to stand on the issue of creation/evolution.
