Example text

Preface to the Second Edition The six years since the publication of the first edition have been full of surprises. One pleasant surprise has been the steady ongoing demand for this book throughout this period leading to multiple printings, reflecting the ongoing interest in the topic posed by the title. Another surprise has been the take-up of the book by segments of the church community that I had imagined had long ago come to terms with evolution, in particular Anglicans and Catholics. In the Preface to the First Edition I commented on the dearth of books, faithful to both Scripture and science, that tackled this particular topic.

As we read different materials in our own language our minds effortlessly adapt to the context, even though in the course of a day we may be faced with understanding dozens of different literary styles. One moment we are reading our daily newspaper, the next moment cooking recipes, then a historical novel, or maybe Harry Potter, then a legal document relating to a house purchase, then some cartoons on the back of the newspaper, then a scientific paper (for some) or a business report (for others).

So when Luke records the words of Jesus (Luke 14:26) that ‘If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters – yes, even his own life – he cannot be my disciple’, what is the literal meaning of the text? If we were reading that text in isolation on a manuscript fragment recovered from some desert in Palestine, we might have a problem in finding the correct interpretation. But of course by placing that text in the context of the rest of the New Testament, we know that Jesus is not actually encouraging us to literally hate our families.
