Evolution and the Genre of Scripture: Why Evolution Shouldn’t Bother Jewish Theology

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

I outline a Jewish response to theological problems emerging from Darwinian biology and contemporary cosmology. This response is rooted in an argument from genre, regarding the relationship between divine revelation and fiction. I then bring this Jewish response into conversation with Shoaib Ahmed Malik’s Islam and Evolution.
