'... provides theologians with important and necessary raw materials to be carefully used within their own areas of expertise.' European Society for the Study of Science and Theology
'Bartholomew, an Emeritus Professor of Statistics, presents a complex story line with exemplary clarity, arguing both against those who maintain that the likelihood of life, let alone humans, appearing by chance is so miniscule that there must be an intelligent designer, and against those who assume God must have determined every detail of His creation.' Theological Book Review
'... an insightful and helpful aid.' Peter H. Van Ness, Yale University School of Medicine
