The whole recent uproar about evolution has gotten me thinking about the subject once again as it has been a while since I’ve thought much about it. It dawned on me that many Christians would like to learn more about evolutionary theory, even if they don’t accept it. The only books they may be aware of are apologetic type texts on the topic. So, I thought I’d give a recommendation and open up the comments section here for others to do so as well.
My favorite book on evolution has to be without question Jonathan Weiner’s The Beak of the Finch. The reason that I like it so much is that it is in a narrative format (though I think it strays from this a little) and free from a lot of jargon. So, it’s great for people who may not enjoy reading science texts. It chronicles a team of scientists and their research in the Galapagos Islands. It makes for interesting reading regardless of one’s predilections.
Do any of you have other recommendations?
