David Patrick Wilcox (born March 9, 1958) is an American folk musician and singer-songwriter guitarist. He has been active in the music business since the late 1980s

David Patrick Wilcox (born March 9, 1958) is an American folk musician and singer-songwriter guitarist. He has been active in the music business since the late 1980s. Wilcox was born in Mentor, Ohio, and attended Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio in 1976, where he began learning guitar. He later transferred to Warren Wilson College in North Carolina in 1981 and graduated in 1985. Wilcox appeared regularly at a Black Mountain, North Carolina nightclub called McDibbs.

A biology professor at a Christian university, Wilcox is committed to a strong biblical faith and to faithful, responsible science. He maintains that there can be no conflict between Scripture and the natural world because God is the author of both. The contentious debate over evolution is a result of a failure to recognize and respect the boundaries of science and also the boundaries of theology. The author addresses such topics as the age of the earth and the origins of life, including human life, exploring from a scientist’s perspective what we know and how we know it. His objective is to help readers reach a point in their faith where they don’t have to choose between God and science, but where they can embrace science as a part of the divine plan.

I found this book very good on the science side from a believer's point of view. I recommend it.

Wilcox points out 2 big challenges for evolution as a theory of origins, the original creation of life and the Cambrian explosion. But he points out that whether these were miracles (as we might term them) or can eventually be explained by natural processes (AKA filling the current gap in our knowledge), however they were done was controlled by God as revealed in the Bible.

As a Christian, he opposes the atheistic materialism of Dawkins and co.

This is a very good book in understanding the terms used and some of the evidence in broad brush ways, with pointers to where to find more info if one wants it. I see this book as complementing Denis Lamoureux's "Evolutionary Creation," which deals more with Bible and theology.

Rather shallow and filled with many misunderstandings but worth the read to get a feel for Theocratic thinking on the subject of evolution vs. Creationism.

This is a wonderful book and one that fit into my research on this topic. Although the biology got a little intense at times (and I am a biologist), the continuing entry of spiritual insights was a blessing. I highly recommend this book to skeptics on both sides of the discussion.

I have been blessed to have Dr. Wilcox as a professor and can say that he is as intelligent in person as he is in his writing. He is a man I admire both as a Christian role model as well as a scholar. This book has aided me in my own struggle to marry my belief in evolution AND my belief in God. It has strengthened my faith and encouraged me as a scientist. It is clearly written and invaluable as resource for anyone wanting to understand these issues.

The author tries valiantly to reconcile science and faith, but gets stuck in the basic premise of faith: He maintains that there can be no conflict between Scripture and the natural world because God is the author of both. As an a priori truth this is, of course, wrong. One needs to study both the natural world and scripture, then one can find out, whether they fit or not.

A famous example is scripture being wrong about the value of Pi, which it gives as exactly 3 (First Kings, chapter 7, verses 23 and 26), whereas it is much closer to 3 1/7.

Also, one needs to study both God and the natural world, then one can have an idea, who has authored whom.
