Item description for Christ and Evolution: Wonder and Wisdom (Theology and the Sciences) by Celia Deane-Drummond...

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Christ and Evolution: Wonder and Wisdom (Theology and the Sciences)?

Inspiring, Mind-Bending  May 5, 2010
This is the first theology text I've read in many years. While the terminology was difficult and I couldn't follow 75% of the author's arguments, it was life-altering to understand that there is a rigorous understanding of Christian faith that includes the feminine (Jesus as an expression of Sophia), and all of nature / cosmos. If you are open to the idea that theology and the theory of evolution need not be in opposition -- indeed, can inform each other, then this is a book for you.

Best aspect: grand sweep of it
Worst aspect: detailed critiques of theologians unknown to this reader. (But then, this is an academic treatise, so it must situate itself within the stream of modern theological discourse).
