Survival of the Thomist
Aquinas and Evolution: Why St. Thomas' Teaching on the Origins Is Incompatible with Evolutionary Theory
by Michael Chaberek, O.P.
The Chartwell Press, 2017
(272 pages, $16.95, paperback)
reviewed by D. Q. McInerny
Father Michael Chaberek, having given us, in his Catholicism and Evolution (2015), a richly informative history of the Church's response to evolutionary theory from the late nineteenth century to the present, now gives us Aquinas and Evolution, which can be regarded as an appropriate sequel to the earlier volume. Together, these books can be fittingly regarded as the two most important philosophical works on evolution to date, written from a deeply learned and engagingly expressed Thomistic point of view.
