"There is no strong theological reason for denying the possibility that God used an evolutionary process to bring into existence the life-
forms he wanted". (Dr Earnest Lucas Can we believe Genesis today? IVP 2001, pg 104).

Also, I believe R J Berry has written at least one book along these lines, but I don't have any details to hand.


PS not strictly relevant to this response, but has anyone come across G A Kerrkut's book, 'Implications of Evolution'?
Prof Kerkut is (or was) an atheist, but one who has not been afraid to point out some of the big assumptions made by
evolutionary biology. I haven't yet got hold of a copy. It's an old book, and at least some of its contents may now
be out of date, but I'd be interested to hear from anyone who _has_ read it and has opinions of it.
