Wynn Publishes New Book on Theory of Evolution

WynnBook.jpgChemistry Professor Charles Wynn has just published a new book, "And God Said, "Let There Be Evolution!': Reconciling the Book of Genesis, the Qur'an, and the Theory of Evolution."  The book deals with the continuing conflict between scientific understandings and religious beliefs.  In Wynn's book, David Kay, a scientist and conservative rabbi in Florida; Howard Van Till, professor emeritus of physics and astronomy at Calvin College in Michigan and devout Christian; and pediatrician T.O. Shanavas, a Muslim living in Michigan, present scientific evidence in support of the Theory of Evolution and then explain how they reconcile that theory with their respective religions. Each concludes that accepting evolution does not require abandoning one's faith.
