    One thought on “Three Views on Creation and Evolution”

    1. This book gave a fantastic overview of the three views on Creation and Evolution while at the same time challenging what I think about science and how it is defined in my mind. I would recommend this to anyone who is curious into Creation and Evolution as it is extremely helpful in understanding.

    2. In general, I like books that offer a variety of perspectives, especially on controversial issues. I have to say that this volume in Zondervan's Counterpoints series is the best that I have read. For whatever reason, they allowed the author to respond to the critiques of his view (so he gets the last word), and they included critiques from representatives of a variety of disciplines. Normally, it is just three-five authors presenting a paper, and then responding to each others papers by repeatin [...]

    3. This is a great book that gives three potential theological stances in regards to creation, as described in the early chapters of Genesis. Three different views are presented, and they range from conservative, to middle-of-the-road, to liberal theology. The three views on creation and evolution described in these pages are:-Young Earth Creationism-Old Earth Creationism (also known as Progressive Creationism)-Theistic EvolutionFor each viewpoint, an expert holding that belief describes all the re [...]

    4. For those wanting to gather insight into the three big Christian theories of creation (young earth creationism, old earth creationism, theistic evolution), this is an excellent book to become familiarized with all three. While I do have familiarity with all three through my years of study, I wanted to primarily focus on the differences between old earth creationism and theistic evolution. While I knew the basic differences, I wanted to gain further insight from a theological point of view. Overa [...]

    5. An underlying theme in "Three Views" is that how one understands the nature of science is of primary significance for guiding where one ends up on the creation/evolution issue. Theistic evolutionists, along with secular and atheistic evolutionists, believe that methodological naturalism is a necessary component of science. Restricting science to natural categories of explanation, it is claimed, does not mean, however, that metaphysical naturalism as a worldview follows from that. The connection [...]

    6. To be honest, I was hoping to read a book which explained how old earth creationism, young earth creationism and theistic evolution justified their theological positions by discussing just how they settled for those positions. Instead, the contributors do not justify themselves by appealing to their understanding of the science. They write (at great length) about almost everything else!In other words, if you want to read a book describing the three positions, don't read this one.On the back cove [...]

    7. Three Views on Creation and Evolution is another in Zondervan's excellent Counterpoints series (I've several of them on my shelves although only reviewed one other on this blog on remarriage and divorce).It's the closest to a debate format that I've found in print. Advocates state their position and then the others each have a turn to respond to the points made. This book was slightly different in that after the three positions were stated, four other writers were invited to respond to each chap [...]

    8. What a great book! My husband and I have at times had downright unpleasant conversations with people in our church and each other (!) about creation, and we read this book together to try and get a handle on the controversy. It was hugely helpful. Each of the three views (young earth, old earth, theistic evolution) are presented by extremely intelligent, articulate Christians, who all make very good cases. After reading, I landed somewhere in the old earth/special creation camp and I think my hu [...]

    9. Boo what a waste of time There are many books (even if you aren't a conservative six day kind of guy) that are infinitely better than this. Don't waste your time. Again I say, booooooooooooooo!

    10. The definition of science is up for grabs. (that should be obvious) and every theory has weaknesses. (I've said that before)

    11. Talbot Course: Systematic Theology 2: Works of God, Angels, Man & SinEXCELLENT SERIES! Any of these perspectives book are worth a read!
