Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0754653153, Hardcover)This book defends a startling idea: that the age-old theological and philosophical problems of original sin and evil, long thought intractable, have already been solved. The solution has come from the very scientific discovery that many consider the most mortal threat to traditional religion: evolution. Daryl Domning explains in straightforward terms the workings of modern evolutionary theory, Darwinian natural selection, and how this has brought forth life and the human mind. He counters objections to Darwinism that are raised by some believers and emphasizes that the evolutionary process necessarily enforces selfish behavior on all living things. This account of both physical and moral evil is arguably more consistent with traditional Christian teachings than are the explanations given by most contemporary 'evolutionary' theologians themselves. The prominent theologian, Monika Hellwig, dialogues with Daryl Donning throughout the book to present a balanced reappraisal of the doctrine of original sin from both a scientist's and theologian's perspective.
