Doubts About Darwin

Thomas Woodward

Deep in the halls of scientific academia, a debate has been quietly raging between Darwinian macroevolution and the theory of intelligent design. This challenge to scientific naturalism has life-changing effects on the fundamental cultural story of humanity; it asks what it means to be human and questions whether or not we have a purpose and a destiny.

Beginning with Michael Denton's revolutionary book, Evolution: A Theory in Crisis, author Thomas Woodward follows the key players and confrontations that are creating a paradigm shift in both the scientific and public arenas. He shows that the erosion of certainty about the factual truth of Darwinism is the product of a rhetorical onslaught-the persuasive case-making by highly accredited critics like Phillip Johnson, Michael Behe, and William Dembski.

Accessible and compelling, Doubts about Darwin opens a dramatic door to moral and intellectual reformation.
