Darwinism Defeated? The Johnson-Lamoureux Debate on Biological Origins

by Phillip E Johnson & Denis O Lamoureux
Vancouver, BC: Regent College Publishing, 1999. 180 pages.

Phillip Johnson, the law school professor who has written a series of anti-evolution books beginning with Darwin on Trial squares off against Denis Lamoureux, a University of Alberta theologian and biologist who studies dental development and evolution. In this book, Lamoureux brings his scientific knowledge to bear as he challenges Johnson's views on how Christians ought to respond to the theory of evolution. The written exchange between Johnson and Lamoureux is followed by essays from a number of scientists and theologians with varying perspectives, including Michael Behe, Howard Van Till, and Rikki Watts. A vivid reminder that the "evolution controversy" is very much a religious discussion, in which opposition to evolution is far from reigning supreme.
