Summary: Cardinal Christoph Sch�nborn's article on evolution and creation in The New York Times launched an international controversy. Critics charged him with biblical literalism and ''creationism''. In this book, Cardinal Sch�nborn responds to his critics by tackling the hard questions with a carefully-reasoned the theology of creation. Can we still speak intelligently of the world as ''creation'' and affirm the existence of the Creator, or is God a ''delusion''? How should an informed morebeliever read Genesis? If God exists, why is there so much injustice and suffering? Are human beings a part of nature or elevated above it? What is man's destiny? Is everything a matter of chance or can we discern purpose in human existence? In his treatment of evolution, Cardinal Sch�nborn distinguishes the biological theory from ''evolutionism'', the ideology that tries to reduce all of reality to mindless, meaningless processes. He argues that science and a rationally-grounded faith are not at odds and that what many people represent as ''science'' is really a set of philosophical positions that will not withstand critical scrutiny. Purpose or Chance? directly raises the philosophical and theological issues many scientists today overlook or ignore. The result is a vigorous, frank dialogue that acknowledges the respective insights of the philosopher, the theologian and the scientist, but which calls on them to listen and to learn from each another. less
