The Selfless Gene: Living with God and Darwin

Charles Foster

Write Review

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Religion & science

Published to coincide with two Darwin anniversaries in 2009, this is a compelling look at the evolution/creationism debate

In THE SELFLESS GENE, Charles Foster assesses the claims of Neo-Darwinists and Young Earth Creationists, demonstrating that orthodox Christianity is not incompatible with what evolutionary biology says about our world. The real issue, he argues, centres around the ethical implications of natural selection, and what such a system - based on selfishness, waste and death - might say about the loving creator God of the Christian faith.Intelligent, provocative and accessible, THE SELFLESS GENE offers the prospect of a reasoned dialogue between faith and scientific study, and a reconciliation of what are popularly seen as two opposing worldviews.
