Saving Darwin
Winter Term Book Discussion:
Saving Darwin:  How to Be a Christian and Believe in Evolution, by Karl Giberson

Wednesday evenings, January 6, 13 and 20
5:30-7:00 p.m. (dinner arrangements and locations TBA)

Facilitated by Stephen Oster, Associate in Science Instruction for Chemistry/Biochemistry, with Chaplain Laurie Jordan and Gus Jordan, Dean of Students.

Although the book is aimed at Christians, the discussion is open to anyone with an interest in learning more about the dialogue between science and religion.  This book provides a very readable cultural history of American Christianity, in particular in relation to Darwin's contributions to science.

If you want to sign up for this discussion or you have questions about the format or the book, contact Chaplain Jordan at ljordan@middlebury.edu.  The books will be available at $5 each and will arrive early the week of December 7th for people who would like to take it home for the break.

This sensitively written and convincingly argued book succeeds in respecting both religious beliefs and scientific facts in discussing theories surrounding the creation of the world . . . A truly courageous work. Library Journal
