"[I]t is a book that tells a fascinating story."
Reviewed by John Goldingay in Theology, 2008
'In The Creationist Debate, Arthur McCalla analyzes America's peculiar history of anti-evolution activism through the lens of theology and religion. Well researched and forcefully written, McCalla explores the religious motivations driving American creationists in their ambitious program to change the very definition of science.'
--Sanford Lakoff

'With meticulous scholarship Arthur McCalla demonstrates that the debate between creationists and evolutionists has been not only about science but also about the Bible. He shows that the underlying assumption of creationists is that the Bible is not merely inerrant but also transcendent. Its meaning bypasses history and is therefore immune to the challenges from worldly, contingent domains like natural science. After reading McCalla's book, one wonders how scholars have managed for so long to focus on disputes over how to read the world and to have downplayed disputes over how to read a text. A first-rate work.'--Sanford Lakoff
