Evolutionary Creation: A Christian Approach to Evolution is a theistic evolution book written in 2008 by Denis O. Lamoureux.


Lamoureux has doctoral degrees in dentistry, theology, and in biology. He is the professor of science and religion at St. Joseph's College at the University of Alberta, Canada, he used to be a Young Earth Creationist.[1]

Lamoureux in the book presents a model of "Evolutionary creation" which is a form of theistic evolution. In the book he accepts and gives evidence for common descent and rejects creationism.[2] According to Lamoureux his model of Evolutionary creation shows that the Bible is not a book of science but a God-inspired book that offers messages of faith.


The book was written in an attempt to wake up the Christian anti-evolution audience in America to accepting the scientific evidence for evolution whilst also giving support to the Christian faith.[3] The book has received positive reviews from theists.[4] It is still a religious book and has not been reviewed by many scientists.
