Book Description

Can the philosophy of evolution be combined with the teaching of the Bible?

Should Christians be relieved by the suggestion that the Christian faith can be understood in such a way that it harmonises with the convictions of evolutionary philosophy?

Is it not true that believing in theistic evolution makes our Christian witness so much more reasonable to people in the modern world?

In The Great Divide, Gerard Berghoef and Lester Dekoster confront these and other questions. They write plainly and vigorously about the issues that are at stake for the Christian faith in its encounter with secular science. They force the reader to ask: What does the Bible really say?

Gerard Berghoef and Lester DeKoster have deliberately avoided writing a technical treatise. Instead, point by point, they direct attention to the teaching of God’s word, and in the light of this challenge the theories of evolutionary philosophy and theistic evolution. If their claims are right then our own century is not only the most scientifically advanced of all time, but perhaps also the most deceived.
