   schema:description "The God of Evolution is an insightful, thought-provoking work that shifts the boundaries of theology by examining the traditional understanding of God and melding it with evolutionary ideas. Edwards begins by looking at the biblical stories of origin and the evolutionary world view. From there he examines the nature of God and God's power, the nature of human persons, including an exploration of original sin and grace, the divine-human relationship, and the impact of an evolutionary world view on the understanding of the Holy Spirit and the person of Jesus. In these discussions Edwards weaves together the insights of contemporary scientific thinkers and the ideas of theologians such as Teilhard de Chardin, Karl Rahner, and Jürgen Moltmann in a careful and nuanced way."@en ;
