Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Credit the author, who has equal credentials in physics and theology, with uniquely addressing ultimate origins (the Big Bang) and not just human origins (evolution). Still, his insistence on the literal correctness of Scripture (there's even a little bit of ``counting the begats'') establishes a tone that won't work with many readers. A more theologically sophisticated exposition is Evolution and Creation, edited by Ernan McMullin (Notre Dame Pr. 1985), and George Seielstad's At the Heart of the Web ( LJ 6/1/89) elucidates many of the same themes without invoking divine creation. However, with its thoughtful references encompasing Maimonides to Stephen Jay Gould, Schroeder's book deserves discussion and could become a standard text of ``creation science.'' It is also likely to receive mixed reviews from scientists, a controversy that probably warrants its purchase.-- Gregg Sapp, Montana State Univ. Libs., Bozeman
