New Series on Disputed Questions in Evolutionary Creation
December 30, 2013
Last year, James Brent, O.P., John Baptist Ku, O.P., Thomas Davenport, O.P., and Nicanor Austriaco, O.P., received a grant from the BioLogos Foundation to write brief essays designed to bring St. Thomas into conversation with evolutionary biology. The first essay in the series is being released in two parts on December 30 and 31. The group is working on a larger project, entitled “Disputed Questions in Evolutionary Creation: Thomistic Responses for the Catholic Faithful and Other Curious Minds,” as a first stage in addressing the critical need for philosophically and theologically rigorous dialogue with evolutionary biology and its related fields. A complete description of the project and its goals can be found here. Thomas Davenport, O.P., also wrote an initial statement of intent for the group on the Dominicana Blog, available here. The first essay of the project is available now at the BioLogos website here; the second will be made available on December 31.
