Evangelical Scientists and a New Creationism

Christopher M. Rios

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • Upends the entrenched narrative of science and religion as diametrically opposed by carrying that narrative beyond the iconic Scopes Monkey Trial and into the latter half of the twentieth century.
  • A major study of two professional organizations dedicated to demonstrating the compatibility between evangelical Christianity and mainstream science: In the United Kingdom, The Research Scientists' Christian Fellowship (RSCF) and, in the United States, the American Scientific Affiliation (ASA)
  • Treats the largely neglected period between 1945 and 1985, when many evangelical scientists began to accept evolution by natural selection, but before the wide adoption of creation science
