Addition to the Series: Karl Giberson, author of “Saving Darwin”

I am pleased to announce that Physicist Karl Giberson has been added to the roster of authors in our “Evangelicals, Evolution, and Academics” series. Karl’s new book Saving Darwin: How to be a Christian and Believe in Evolution will be released on Tuesday. On Monday, he will publish the eighth installment in our “Evangelicals, Evolution, and Academics” series. His topic will be “Evolution in Public Schools”. Given the high visibility and continuing media coverage of the conflict over the teaching evolution in public schools, this is indeed a welcome (and necessary) addition to our discussion.

Thanks Karl. Welcome to the series.

Note: The series introduction post has been amended to indicate Karl’s involvement. Not sure if changing old posts is kosher from a blogging etiquette perspective, but "Blogging Etiquette for Dummies" is not part of my personal canon.

Steve,

I want to thank you for the work you are doing in bringing these academics into our blogging world. It has been highly informative and interesting!

It's a wonderful trend that books like this one are being published. One of the first books I read on the subject of evolution was Finding Darwin's God by Kenneth Miller. This book sounds similar. In one of the earlier posts in this series, Dennis Venema talked about a Christian college environment where 'students are in a place of safety.' But even for those not at a Christian school, books like these, which reflect an understanding of the world of those coming out of fundamentalism, are of great benefit in making the discoveries that can be somewhat difficult to process, as the reader comes to realize how he's been misled for so many years.
