Reprint of the 1985 edition with a new introduction. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (email@example.com)
Creationism on Trial is Langdon Gilkey's fascinating, blow-by-blow account of his experiences as a witness for the ACLU at the 1981 creationist trial in Little Rock, Arkansas. This courtroom drama between state-supported "creation science" fundamentalists and ACLU-supported scientists, theologians, and liberal teachers was an engrossing spectacle at the time and has been much talked about since. Gilkey, a renowned theological writer, brings to life principal characters and entertaining anecdotes from the trial and effortlessly translates the abstract religious concepts of the case into digestable language. Highlighted by a new introduction that takes into account recent directions in the creationism debate, this book will once again provoke discussion in classes of theology and religion.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 235-301).
