New Book on Theistic Evolution

This book looks to be the definitive critique of theistic evolution. It is a massive tome, weighing in at just over 1 kilopage. It looks exciting for those of us who have been waiting for a more or less thorough critique of theistic evolution, which has begun to invade even the more conservative NAPARC denominations. The critique comes from scientific, philosophical, and theological directions. And it is on sale right now at 50% off!

    We seem to continue to struggle with this, don’t we? On the one hand, a very good book by Dr. Moreland, et al, on the inconsistencies of a God-directed biological evolution, yet on the other hand a book that doesn’t go far enough in tying together the inconsistencies in a God-directed geological evolution as well.

    Seeking intellectual approval form the Greek philosophical establishment (aka, current scientific consensus), we compromise and capitulate once again to the wisdom of the world, forsaking the wisdom from above spelled out for us in Scripture.

    John Byl gives a short review here (and a link to a lengthier one): http://bylogos.blogspot.co.uk/2018/03/a-new-critique-of-theistic-evolution.html

    Been thinking about (despite cost and length, I love GB’s 1 kilopage remark) getting “Theistic Evol: a…critique” (TEAC). Been looking for reviews. Thanks, Chris @2, for providing links to such, including the (18 page! review) link you observed was linked in John Byl’s blog review. Conclusions I reached: 1) If one wishes a very much more readable, more accessible to the uninitiate, yet significantly comprehensive summary, Vern Poythress’ “Redeeming Science” will prove a better choice.(I just wish Vern trusted his own arguments/conclusions regarding mature creationism and, for whatever reason, didn’t cave in to pagan science in dismissing himself.) On the other hand, 2) TEAC’s section on science looks to provide significant scholarly detail about how (as I’ve put it for decades) belief in evolution is a faith held contrary to fact and makes a monkey of oneself.

    In interest of noting the relevance of the originating comments observation, “…theistic evolution, which has begun to invade even the more conservative NAPARC denominations”, (a concern with which I whole heartedly concur), John Byl’s blog had entries worth scanning. Not at all insignificant that they are now working toward most of a decade old. Here are couple I thought more readable and direct.

    @ Chris Schroeder and @ Roy Kerns,

    The older I get and the more I understand God’s glory and His absolute moral perfection; His invisible attributes, eternal power, and divine nature (Rom.1:20) to which no man/woman is without excuse, it is inconceivable to me that a Christian would adopt the secular ages and its millions and billions of years.

    We know that biological evolution and geological evolution are two sides of the same coin. The secular creation ‘story’ needs both, one cannot stand without the other.

    A failure to study the geologic column and its sequence of events; its ‘eras’, ‘periods’, and ‘epochs’, and the things (fossils) that died during those periods and the cataclysmic events that took place along the way is why many old earth advocates still cling to the millions of years, but reject the biological rise of life that is God non-directed.

    Proffering two Christ’s, the millions and billions of years advocate fails to see that they are putting forth a false Christ, a counterfeit Christ, and therefore a false gospel. Claiming that Christ, in His work of creation (John 1:3, Col. 1:16), is not to be held blameless, not to be held accountable, not capricious is His creative acts, and therefore not accountable or responsible for the death, disease, and suffering over those millions and billions of years, is one of the most egregious sins of our Church era.

    The world is watching. They see the duplicity. They are repulsed. They want nothing to do with a Christ such as that.
