Thomistic Evolution (2nd edition)

Evolutionary theory has raised numerous disputed questions among Catholics and other Christians concerning the relationship between faith and reason and between religion and science. Thomistic Evolution shows that the Thomistic intellectual tradition, grounded in the philosophical and theological synthesis of St. Thomas Aquinas, provides insightful and compelling responses to these questions. The novelty and brilliance of these Thomistic responses will surprise believers and skeptics alike, transcending and reconciling the dichotomies that shape the contemporary science and religion debate. Unfortunately, the Thomistic responses to these disputed questions in science and religion are neither well known nor well understood. This new book, along with its companion website,, seeks to remedy this.

These essays present a remarkably lucid synthesis of Thomistic philosophy and theology in service of a timely Christian engagement with evolutionary science.... Indispensable for anyone who wants to think clearly about these issues. (Archbishop J. Augustine Di Noia, O.P.)

Thomistic Evolution is a team of Dominican friars-scholars (Fr. Nicanor Pier Giorgio Austriaco, O.P., Fr. James Brent, O.P., Fr. Thomas Davenport, O.P., and Fr. John Baptist Ku, O.P.) committed to the preaching of the Gospel, and, through the Thomistic intellectual tradition, providing answers to questions about faith and reason, and religion and science.
