Few issues engender so much heat between Christians as the topic of creation. Reasonable, calm, and supremely well informed, this is a book written by someone who is passionate about both science and the Bible. 'I hope,' says Denis Alexander, 'that reading it will encourage you to believe, as I do, that the 'Book of God's Word' and the 'Book of God's Works' can be held firmly together in harmony.' This substantial new edition updates the science, and extends the author's discussion of the theological implications.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Surely the best informed, clearest and most judicious treatment of the question in its title that you can find anywhere today.' -- J I Packer
`In this brilliant and highly readable treatise, Denis Alexander the scientists-believer argues convincingly and lovingly that a committed Christian need not fear evolution, but can embrace it as God's awesome means of creation.' -- Dr Francis S Collins, Head of the Human Genome Project, USA
"Regardless of what position one might hold, Alexander's book will light the way to a more informed understanding of the terrain in one of today's most volatile issues. Just as importantly, he models the graciousness that ought to characterize our conversations. His expertise in the pertinent sciences is undergirded with a nuanced understanding of the biblical and theological issues and a commitment to their importance. Those who sometimes struggle with the technical jargon that often characterizes this conversation will find a breath of fresh air in his ability to communicate clearly. Books like this are helping the church to move beyond the warfare mentality and to consider anew ways that we can think as Christians in a complicated world, and Alexander's work has earned a spot at the top of the list." -- John Walton, Professor of Old Testament, Wheaton College [author of The Lost World of Genesis One]
`Very timely, thoughtful, thorough and full of integrity. It speaks the languages of both science and faith in a remarkably clear and accessible way.' -- Rt Revd John Pritchard, Bishop of Oxford, UK
`A masterful and enlightening journey through both the relevant biblical text and the science underlying evolution.' -- Andrew P. Halestrap, Professor of Biochemistry, University of Bristol, UK
`A fresh and massive contribution to an important debate....no Christian interested in the questions of origins can ignore this book.' -- Julian Hardyman, Senior Pastor, Eden Baptist Church, Cambridge, UK
"Immensely valuable ... a thoughtful and thought-provoking work." -- Professor Ernan McMullin * The Tablet *
