A Baptist minister expresses his views on the place of evolution in the Christian doctrine by abandoning a literal translation of the Bible. He proposes a position he calls "evolutionary Christianity," in which the fundamentals of Christianity remain intact but allow for the abundant evidence that the process of natural selection exists. Because of Dowd's extensive public speaking experience, he presents a masterful narration that achieves a comfortable pace and a conversational modulation that keeps the lilstener's attention level high. He breaks the stereotype of the traditional Baptist preacher by introducing science into his message and reaching out to those of all faiths—and no faith. A large audience of religious fundamentalists may find his view of evolution as a divine process refreshing and novel. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2008]
