What is the coherent story that can bring together evolution with religious traditions about the origin of the world and its inhabitants? Jacob Klapwijk uses a philosophical approach to argue that there is a way to bridge the gap between the two, marrying evolutionary theory with the sense that there is meaning in it all. Purpose in the Living World? Creation and emergent revolution is published by Cam­bridge University Press. (£14.99 (£13.50); 978-0-521-72943-7).

Hilary Marlow starts with the Bible’s understanding of the world, and its principles for living in a way that honours creation. She hopes that The Earth is the Lord’s (Grove Biblical Series, No. 50) will encour­age Christians to reflect on what their faith means to them in terms of the environment, and that it will move them to respond to the green issues that we face. Each of the chapters in her book also offers some questions for discussion (Grove, £3.50 (£3.15); 978-1-85174-705-4).
