What Hath Darwin to Do With Scripture?
IVP Academic, 2023
By Dru Johnson

WHO: Dru Johnson, director of the Center for Hebraic Thought and a research fellow at the Herzl Institute, the Logos Institute and the Henry Center.

HE SAYS: “For the Hebraic thinking of the biblical authors, human action in the world metaphysically reconfigures the cosmos.”

THE BIG IDEA: This book explores the conceptual worlds underlying both Scripture and evolutionary science.

THE PROGRESSION: In 12 chapters the author explores the continuity and discontinuities between biblical themes and those of Darwin and modern science.

“Putting aside the historicity of the creation—the what-actually-happened question—significant and irreconcilable tensions remain between the Hebraic conceptual world and that of some evolutionary sciences.”
