Can a Darwinian be a Christian?: The Relationship Between Science and Religion
Can someone who accepts Darwin's theory of natural selection subscribe at the same time to the basic tenets of Christianity? Adopting a balanced perspective on the subject, Michael Ruse argues that, although it is at times difficult for a Darwinian to embrace Christian belief, it is not inconceivable. Ruse has produced an important contribution to a sometimes overheated debate for anyone interested in seeking an informed and judicious guide to these issues. Michael Ruse is professor of philosophy and zoology at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada. He is the author of many books on evolutionary biology. In addition, he has published several hundred articles and many book reviews. He is the editor of the Cambridge Series in the Philosophy of Biology and founding editor of the journal IBiology & Philosophy. Hb ISBN (2000): 0-521-63144-0

Michael Ruse wrote extensively about the relationship between Darwinism and Christianity and points out the significance of the two and how they are not far from each other. He confirms that science compliments the Biblical creationism story. It is amazing how evolution is described outside of Darwinism yet Darwin himself said very little about evolution.
