This book provides a distinctive way beyond the quarrels between evolutionary science and Christian belief. Leading scientists, philosophers, and theologians critically discuss the metaphysical assumptions of neo-Darwinism and offer concrete ways of broadening mainstream evolutionary theory. Their open exchange, moderated by veteran process theologian John B. Cobb, allows for intelligent purpose in the evolutionary process, even opening the door to God's potential influence on it.Table of Contents PrefaceAcknowledgmentsList of ContributorsIntroduction1.
