Description

In Saving the Neanderthals, Christian philosopher Mark McLeod-Harrison brings the conceptual resources of philosophy to bear on the question of whether theologically orthodox faith (particularly the doctrines of sin and salvation) can be sustained in light of so-called 'hard-evolution'. Thus McLeod-Harrison deploys a range of philosophical concepts which are rarely employed in the faith-and-evolution literature. These include modal logic, natural kinds versus anti-essentialism, methodological naturalism versus metaphysical naturalism, human uniqueness versus biological persons, and the scope of the image of God viz. human ontological solidarity. McLeod-Harrison concludes that, in light of hard evolution, traditional doctrines of sin and salvation need to be modified, yet these modified versions still fall within the scope of Christian orthodoxy. Consequently, even if hard evolution is the way biological life arose on our planet, Christian faith has 'nothing to fear' from hard evolution. McLeod-Harrison models the Christian scholar facing challenging questions of our day head-on. He has provided a stimulating and significant addition to current thinking on the relationship between Christian faith and evolution, and, more broadly, an important contribution to the ancient enterprise of fides quarens intellectum.--Chris Barrigar, author of Freedom All the Way Up: God and the Meaning of Life in a Scientific Age
