Item description for The Groaning of Creation: God, Evolution, and the Problem of Evil by Christopher Southgate...

Overview
Pain, suffering, and extinction are intrinsic to the evolutionary process. In this book Christopher Southgate shows how the world that is "very good" is also groaning in travail and subjected by God to that travail. Southgate then evaluates several attempts at evolutionary theodicy and argues for his own approach-an approach that takes full account of God's self-emptying and human beings' special responsibilities as created co-creators.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Groaning of Creation: God, Evolution, and the Problem of Evil?

a thoughtful, honest treatment   Feb 20, 2009
In this book, Christopher Southgate addresses the "problem of evil" with particular attention to evolution. He notes that evolution necessarily includes pain, suffering, death, and exctinction as part of the process. How does someone who confesses the goodness of God respond to this? Southgate attempts his answer in this book.

Along the way, Southgate helpfully critiques other proposals (i.e. process theology, creationism, intelligent design, de Chardin), and interacts with a wide variety of thinkers, all in clear writing and with a charitable spirit. For instance, Southgate believes that God suffers with creatures and employs "kenosis" as an important part of his constructive moves. But he carefully interacts with critics of these two theological positions and refines his own views as a result. After describing his approach to creation, Southgate outlines the role of humanity before ending with some concrete ethical proposals.

For anyone interested in this subject, this is a helpful book. I found Southgate's honesty, his willingness to ask the difficult questions, and his own modesty extremely refreshing. I imagine everyone who reads it will be challenged in some deep ways, but will find the book well worth their attention.
