Darwinism and the Divine in America: Protestant Intellectuals and Organic Evolution, 1895–1900

Originally published in 1988, Jon H. Roberts's book provided the first comprehensive analytical overview of public dialogue among nineteenth-century American Protestant intellectuals who struggled with the theory of organic evolution. Arguments over the scientific merits of Darwin's theory gave way to discussions of its theological implications. Robert's book reconstructs the course of that conversation from 1859 to 1900.
