a recommendation: John Polkinghorne

I'm working on a post right now regarding the Creation/Evolution/Intelligent Design/whatever's popular this week debate, but it's still in progress.

What I CAN say now is, if you've the time/resources, check out John Polkinghorne's Exploring Reality: The Intertwining of Science and Religion. Chapter 3--"Human Nature: The Evolutionary Context"--is one of the finest words on the topic(Evolution, I mean) from a Christian(Polkinghorne is both a particle physicist and an Anglican priest) that I've ever read. The rest of the book thusfar is also certainly worthwhile, but his discussion on this topic in particular was outstanding.

You can also just check out selections from it right here on Google Books.
