What People are Saying About This

D. Kip Solomon
Remarkably timeless, S. B. Talmage's writings are pertinent far beyond the fossilized issue of organic evolution, providing harmonizing insight into contemporary dilemmas at the interface between science and theology.
Ashley A. Green
The author concludes that the geologic record and the principle of evolution are not only compatible with a coherent interpretation of the scriptural accounts but also promotive of faith in the Creator, the Author of natural law.
—Dr. Ashley A. Green, Senior Lecturer in Physics, Oxford Brookes University
Duane E. Jeffery
A devout and insightful mind, long suppressed, is at last given utterance. These are critical perspectives necessary for consideration of science and Mormonism.
—Dr. Duane E. Jeffery, Professor of Zoology, Brigham Young University
