I would add Ted Peters and Martinez Hewlett, Evolution from Creation to New Creation (Abingdon, 2003). It gives a good and fair survey of a whole range of views from atheistic materialism to YEC and presents the authors own version of theistic evolution.

  IMHO, the best treatments from a broadly evangelical perspective right now are Denis Alexander, "Creation or Evolution: Do We Have to Choose"; Daniel Harrell, "Nature's Witness"; and Davis Young, "The Bible, Rocks and Time"; Gordon Glover, "Beyond the Firmament"; and Loren and Deborah Haarsma, "Origins." All of these use clear language and are sensitive to the concerns of a conservative readership.

    Perhaps, we would be better served (and serve) if there were fewer insistent attempts to proclaim the validity of ones's

    I'm currently tearing out what little hair I have left attempting to put together something on paleontology that will be helpful
    to web readers. Any ideas?

    Enjoy this time of celebrating our Lord's birth.

      There have been so many books articles and treatments of the subject over the last 150 years that I don't know where to start. Theologically these vary from extreme liberal to Fundamentalist (in the original meaning of that word). As a result there is no manifesto but rather how theologians of different perspectives dealt with evolution in a positive way.

              The closest you'll get to this is "Perspectives of an Evolving Creation" edited by Keith Miller. Several of the participants on this list wrote articles for this collection..
