    “In Theistic Evolution, a Scientific, Philosophical, and Theological Critique, the authors provide a thorough analysis of the theistic evolution paradigm. In doing so they add to the discussion some additional arguments against Darwinism along with arguments which forward a Christian framework regarding creation. This is not another YEC package of simple answers. Neither is it an apologetic for ID. The argument is more straightforward: Theistic evolution (TE) represents an unacceptable compromise, and even a surrender.

    There are quite a few contributors that generated my interest in this book. Two in particular:

    I was most curious about J. P. Moreland’s contribution to the book. In previous works his contributions to the philosophy of science and theology have been both challenging and beneficial. Unfortunately at $60 there is no chance that I’d purchase this tome and excepting Moreland’s contribution, the review met my expectations.

    I've read quite a few books by Wayne Grudem and am familiar enough with his position on creationism, (without a recent review) he considers theistic evolution an unacceptable choice for Christians. I fully anticipated that his contribution would be plain and ordinary. The review did nothing but confirm my expectations.
