The Language of Science and Faith: Straight Answers to Genuine Questions
by Karl W. Giberson and Francis S. Collins
InterVarsity Press, 2011
(251 pages, $14.00, hardcover)

reviewed by Casey Luskin

Theistic evolution is becoming an increasingly debated topic within the Church. In its June 2011 cover story, Christianity Today featured various professors who argue against the existence of Adam and Eve. Soon thereafter, World magazine named two volumes—God and Evolution and Should Christians Embrace Evolution?—as its books of the year. Both events followed on the heels of the release of The Language of Science and Faith: Straight Answers to Genuine Questions (hereafter Language), co-authored by the most recognizable name in the . . .

Casey Luskin , an attorney with a science background, is research coordinator at the Discovery Institute (www.discovery.org) in Seattle, Washington. He is a senior editor at Salvo magazine, and co-author of Science and Human Origins and Traipsing into Evolution: Intelligent Design and the Kitzmiller v. Dover Decision (both Discovery Institute Press).
