"An original and invaluable contribution to the debate on evolution and design, balancing process insights with state-of-the-art scientific contributions."
Niels Henrik Gregersen
— University of Copenhagen
"This is both a primer in current philosophy of evolutionary biology and a new proposal for integrating evolution and religious thinking. Cobb and company listen to the best representatives of neo-Darwinism and analyze the rich tapestry of supplementary theories before they argue for the creative role of biological agency in evolution. A genuinely exciting volume!"
