I found this interesting comparison between the book introduced above and another book that sometimes gets more press:
“I’d like to take a minute to compare this book [“Paradigms on Pilgrimate”] to “Finding Darwin’s God” by Kenneth R. Miller. Dr. Miller’s book is generally one of the first recommended to people who want to explore the compatibility of religion with faith.”
I love Dr. Miller’s ability to explain science–he makes it exciting and understandable. . . But “Finding Darwin’s God” answered very few theological questions for me. Dr. Miller makes no claims to being a theologian; he is a scientist. His book is very worth reading, as a primer on evolution–one that is specifically pro-faith."
“Dr. Godfrey & Dr. Smith do not give nearly as much scientific information as Dr. Miller’s book does. In fact, “Paradigms on Pilgrimage” talks very little about the proposed mechanisms for evolution. It, however, goes into a great more theological detail. The books complement each other very well, and their topics don’t overlap very much.”
