A New Noah
The Creation: An Appeal to Save Life on Earth
by Edward O. Wilson
W. W. Norton, 2006
(173 pages, $21.95, hardcover)
reviewed by Anne Barbeau Gardiner
Written as a letter to a Southern Baptist pastor, Harvard biologist Edward Wilson’s newest book invites Evangelicals to put aside their differences with Darwinians and join them in the common cause of saving life on earth, but he does not stop at offering a pragmatic association with Evangelicals. He yokes their sacred words— Creation, Eden, stewardship, truth, mystery, human nature, miracle, meaning of existence, and heaven—to pull the cart of his naturalism.
