    Hei Glenn,
    since you said that you needed to look up the writings of those
    theologians.
    In May 2000 this book was published

    Evolution, Scripture, and Science : Selected Writings
    by B.B Warfield (edited by Mark Noll & David Livingstone)
    Baker (publ. company)

    I find it interesting if Warfield supported evolution, because his defense
    of the total inerrancy of the Bible has had a major influence on American
    evangelical theologians.

    Regards from Inge
