So I just read Dr. Lamoureux’s latest book “Evolution: Scripture and Nature Say Yes.” I liked the last book I read of his but was curious how his views might have “evolved” from 2008 to 2016. While much of the content is recycled from “Evolutionary Creation,” he expands on several sections and his style is less polemical. I confess that I was a bit taken aback by his style at times in “Evolutionary Creation,” but that is partly because it was also the first time I was really confronted by things like the ancient science in the Bible. My impression is that the added years of experience teaching students and anticipating their difficulties has softened his earlier, more dogmatic style to a more refined, pastoral one. This matters to me as I consider books I would be willing to give to curious family members and friends. About my only criticism is the book’s title. It gives the impression he is going to argue for evolution using a concordist approach from scripture which is obviously not the case as he is “Dr. anti-scientific concordism.”
Overall, I loved this book and will continue to look out for his future works. I recommend it highly to anyone interested in EC.
