9780800640132: Christ and Evolution: Wonder and Wisdom (Theology and the Sciences) (Theology & the Sciences)

The way Christ is understood is at the heart of Christian faith and self-understanding. It forms the basis of Christologies that can range from the most traditional, expressing the understanding Christ as both human and divine person, to the most liberal, where Christ is understood as divine inasmuch as he is a man who is perfectly obedient to the will of God. Our images of Christ inevitably bear on the particular culture in which we are situated. So, it is somewhat surprising that the science and religion dialogue has focused most on a doctrine of God, while rarely addressing the figure of Christ. This book sets out to develop a Christology that is far more conscious of the evolutionary history of humanity and current evolutionary theories about the natural world in general. It argues that one means of developing a Christology that can be informed by such theories is through the concepts of wisdom and wonder. Both have a defined theological role but also act as mediating concepts with science and point to a spirituality that incorporates both science and theology.

Review:

Evolution is not just an epic of gradually unfolding potentials but a drama filled with tensions and tragedy, contingency and form. Celia Deane-Drummond brings together updated views on evolutionary theory with classic themes of Christology from Wisdom Christology to cross and resurrection. While fully respecting the integrity of biology, Deane-Drummond presents the drama of evolution as a theo-drama from beginning to end. I admire both the courage and the cogency of this work. --Niels Henrik Gregersen, Copenhagen University

Christ and Evolution offers both a bold and subtle exploration, a true adventure of ideas. Biologist and theologian Celia Deane-Drummond draws from an abundance of scientific and theological resources to reconstruct the history of science and the history of ideas associated with evolution and key issues in twentieth-century Christology. --Michael Welker, University of Heidelberg

Celia Deane-Drummond's latest book attempts not merely to rehearse the arguments for the compossibility of theological and Darwinian explanation. Instead by using evolutionary insights, she seeks to develop a richer dialogue that extends to key issues in Christian doctrine. In dealing with incarnation, atonement, resurrection and Christian hope from this perspective, she offers a significant and stimulating exploration of traditional themes. --David Fergusson (Professor of Divinity, University of Edinburgh)
