Re: What evangelicals fight about: creation

I agree that the theory of evolution is a story of a very different type to either creationism or intelligent design, and I don’t mean to distort or diminish it by putting it in the same ‘story’ box. But I think that something more fundamental is at stake for the church than whether evolution can be made to stand as a theory. By reducing the three positions (four if we take John’s point) to the same hermeneutical level, telling them as mutually interpretive stories, we can concentrate on what is something more like a primary task, which is to give a complex but coherent account of things on the assumption that there is a creator God.
