Read full description of the books:



E.O. Wilson-- a giant in biology, a thoughtful and, I believe, good-hearted person whose scientific work and soft-spoken manner I admire. But even in this honest and sincere effort, his writing does not successfully escape the deeply-ingrained scientism so typical of Wilson, in which nothing outside science (e.g. religion) is ultimately allowed any grounding in reality. He continues to make his hallmark mistake of omitting the defining line between science and philosophy. Hence, most of his arguments will fail to resonate with his intended Christian audience, who will likely be more put off by his outright rejection of their views than they will be softened by his under-explored appeal for finding common ground. While Wilson’s efforts to enlist the religious in the saving of Creation is timely and, I believe, critical for the success of conservation, Wilson’s arguments are so couched in the language of his own worldview that he is, I fear, preaching only to the choir of already-converted conservationists within Christianity. For these, his presentation of the current environmental crisis is well-articulated, poignant, and motivating. But his failure to deeply connect with a Christian audience reinforces my opinion that messengers for conservation must be found and encouraged from within the various religious traditions. Nonetheless, while my worldview differs from Wilson’s in many ways, I cannot help but like this man.
