Someone suggested to me on the Christian biologists list that I should
add Cornelius Hunter's Darwin's God to the annotated bibliography that I
make students read here at Dordt.
While I have the book, I have not done more than skimmed it so I don't
have a good feel for how good it is or if it has good arguments that
under grads should grapple with. While I know it is favored by the ID
movement, I would like feedback from others on how good and important
this book is. I did not find much in terms of reviews on the Web - but
I gather the author may be trying to show that Darwin was gripped with a
world and life view that affected what he did. I agree with that
principle but does the author do that as well as many of the other
I do not hesitate to add it because it is ID. I think Behe, Dembski
and Johnson have brought important ideas into the intellectual forum and
so have extensively and somewhat favorably annotated them. I just don't
get the feel that Hunter has had the same impact.
I would appreciate any feedback any of you might have.
