Owen Gingerich's New Project (Update from AAAS)

I ran into Owen Gingerich, emeritus professor of astronomy and history of science at Harvard University, on the way to the AAAS Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Religion reception yesterday afternoon, and he was talking excitedly about his new book project. Gingerich said the book will be about evolution from a Christian perspective, avoiding some of the hot-button issues ("I'm not going to try to convert young-earth creationists," he said) and focusing more on deeper issues and questions, like what it means to be human. —Heather Wax
