God After Darwin Book Coverby John Haught
Westview Press (2nd Ed.), 2007

Haught discusses the relationship between metaphysics, evolution, and theology showing evolution as a product of the God of the Bible.


“In God After Darwin, John Haught argues that the ongoing debate between Darwinian evolutionists and Christian apologists is fundamentally misdirected: Both sides persist in focusing on an explanation of underlying design and order in the universe. Haught suggests that what is lacking in both of these competing ideologies is the notion of novelty, a necessary component of evolution and the essence of the unfolding of divine mystery. He argues that Darwin’s disturbing picture of life, instead of being hostile to religion–as scientific skeptics and many believers have thought it to be–actually provides a most fertile setting for mature reflection on the idea of God. Solidly grounded in scholarship, Haught’s explanation of the relationship between theology and evolution is both accessible and engaging.”
