Must evolutionary science and Christian faith be mutually exclusive? John F. Haught suggests that, rather than necessarily contradicting one another, theologians and Darwinian scientists actually share an appreciation of the underlying meaning and awe-inspiring mystery of evolution. Today he speaks with Dan and Jana about the importance of evolution for Christian theology and Christian faith today. He is the author of the newly released book, Making Sense of Evolution: Darwin, God, and the Drama of Life.
John F. Haught is a Senior Fellow specializing in Science and Religion at the Woodstock Theological Center, Georgetown University, and Professor of Theology Emeritus, Georgetown University. A leading voice in the emerging field of science and religion, Haught is the author of eighteen books, including God and the New Atheism: A Critical Response to Dawkins, Harris, and Hitchens.
