> Kidner, Derek. 1967. Genesis. Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries, IV Press. In discussing "let the earth [or sea] bring forth" in Gen. 1:11, 20, 24, he states "this language seems well suited to the hypothesis of creation by evolution (as the present writer thinks)" but does not rule out any other alternative.
As I have noted before, the relevance of these verses to the idea of mediated creation was seen by many of the church fathers, and Messenger, in his 1932 _Evolution and Theology_ pointed out the significance of this fact for theological understandings of evolution.
