Evolution and Christian Faith by Joan Roughgarden
Book Description"I'm an evolutionary biologist and a Christian," states Stanford professor Joan Roughgarden at the outset of her groundbreaking new book, "Evolution and Christian Faith: Reflections of an Evolutionary Biologist". From that perspective, she offers an elegant, deeply satisfying reconciliation of the theory of evolution and the wisdom of the Bible. Perhaps only someone with Roughgarden's unique academic standing could examine so well controversial issues such as the teaching of intelligent design in public schools, or the potential flaws in Darwin's theory of evolution. Certainly Roughgarden is uniquely suited to reference both the minutiae of scientific processes and the implication of biblical verses. Whether the topic is mutation rates and lizards or the hidden meanings behind St. Paul's letters, "Evolution and Christian Faith" distils complex arguments into everyday understanding. Roughgarden has scoured the Bible and scanned the natural world, finding examples time and again, not of conflict, but of harmony. The result is an accessible and intelligent context for seeing a Christian vision of the world that embraces science. In the ongoing debates over creationism and evolution, "Evolution and Christian Faith" will be seen as a work of major significance, written for contemporary readers who wonder how - or if - they can embrace scientific advances while maintaining their traditional values.

Evolution's Rainbow, Paperback (October 2013)
Offers a discussion of diversity in gender and sexuality among fish, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and mammals, including primates. This title explains how this diversity develops from the action of genes and hormones and how people come to differ from each other in all aspects of body and behavior.
Genial Gene, Paperback (May 2010)» View all books by Joan Roughgarden
Develops a controversial alternative theory called social selection, which emphasizes cooperation, elucidates the factors that contribute to evolutionary success in a gene pool or animal social system, and demonstrates that to identify Darwinism with selfishness and individuality misrepresents the facts of life as we now know them.
