Book Notice – Charles Darwin’s Religious Views by David Herbert

March 23, 2009

2009 is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin and the 150th anniversary of the publication of Origin of the Species.  Darwin’s writings and theories have had a profound effect on Western thought and society.  David Herbert considers the man, Charles Darwin, and the influences on his life which resulted in his journey from creationist to evolutionist.

A fascinating and important study of Charles Darwin, one of the most significant figures of our time.  The book is a tour de force in its analysis of the creation-science debate, as well as an insightful account of the man himself.  It includes a careful and cautious study of the so-called ‘Lady Hope Tract,’ suggesting a deathbed conversion.  I highly recommend it, especially for those embarking on scientific study at any level.

It is published by Joshua Press and available for $20 from Sola Scriptura Ministries International here.
