Synopsis


The year 2009 is the Anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin and the 150th publication of his book on The Origin of Species. The ideas which Darwin stimulated lie at the heart of our understanding of the natural world. They offer and elegant scientific account which elicits a positive response from and gives much to theology. Yet in recent years the Intelligent Design movement amongst creationists in the United States in opposition, not only to Darwinism, but also and consistently, to contemporary Western values and to mainstream liberal theology. It is now infiltrating the United Kingdom. In this book a group of scientists and theologians unite to honour Charles Darwin, expressing their common conviction that Darwinian evolution marks a very great advance in human understanding of the world and that Intelligent Design is an unproductive dead end. Intelligent Faith will be of interest not only to thinking people with an interest in theology and science but also to sixth formers, school discussion groups and university societies. Contributors include The Most Rev Rowan Williams, Prof Russell Stannard and Rev Dr Harriet Harris.
