Contents:
Introduction -- Ebb and flow: Evangelicals and evolution, 1860s to 1940s -- A society for the correlation of science and the Bible: the American Scientific Afflilation, 1940s to 1965 -- Unexpected resistance: the Research Scientists' Christian Fellowship, 1940s to 1965 -- An increasingly powerful movement: modern creationism to the 1980s -- Against the tide: the American Scientific Afflilation, 1965 to 1985 -- A new apologetic: the Research Scientists' Christian Fellowship, 1965 to 1985 -- Conclusion.
Summary: Over the past generation, considerable historical attention has been given to evangelical Christians who attacked modern evolutionary theories. This book, by contrast, sheds light on the under-studied story of twentieth-century Christians who remained theologically conservative, but refused to take up arms against modern science - those who sought to show the compatibility of biblical Christianity and the conclusions of mainstream science, including evolution.

Over the past generation, considerable historical attention has been given to evangelical Christians who attacked modern evolutionary theories. This book, by contrast, sheds light on the under-studied story of twentieth-century Christians who remained theologically conservative, but refused to take up arms against modern science - those who sought to show the compatibility of biblical Christianity and the conclusions of mainstream science, including evolution.
