Gijsbert van den Brink’s book “Reformed Theology & Evolutionary Theory” is a thorough survey of the current literature on science and theology, along with the author’s commentary, insights, and conclusions. For the sake of argument, he assumes that the Darwinian account of evolution is true. He then asks what that would mean from a (Reformed) theological point of view.
He sums up his discussion by pointing out that there are three places where adjustments are needed in classical (Reformed) theology:
(1) Concordism (“the hermeneutical view that biblical statements pertaining to the physical world correspond to scientific facts”) (pp. 74-5),
(2) The theory of the cosmic fall (“that is, after the first human beings lapsed into sin, and as a result of that fact, God’s originally perfect creation was distorted to such an extent that the entire biosphere fell into disarray”) (p. 111), and
(3) The idea that human history started with a single couple.
He concludes that “Christian believers do not have to resist evolutionary theory because of their faith commitments; and non-Christians don’t have to think that in order to become a Christian they should do the impossible, that is, renounce something that is so evidently true to them as Darwinian evolution.” (p. 274)
