Evolutionary Creation: Moving beyond the Evolution versus Creation Debate
Lamoureux, Denis O.
Christian Higher Education, v9 n1 p28-48 2010
Evolutionary creation offers a conservative Christian approach to evolution. It explores biblical faith and evolutionary science through a Two Divine Books model and proposes a complementary relationship between Scripture and science. The Book of God's Words discloses the spiritual character of the world, while the Book of God's Works reveals the divine creative process. This view of origins recognizes that the Bible features an ancient conceptualization of nature, and consequently rejects concordism (or scientific concordism). It understands biblical revelation in the light of the Incarnation and suggests that Scripture was accommodated for an ancient Near Eastern mindset. Evolutionary creation holds a traditional notion of natural revelation. The reflection of intelligent design extends to the process of evolution, rejecting the God-of-the-gaps creative method, and declaring the faithfulness of the Creator's evolutionary mechanisms.
