“Machine or Melody? Joseph Ratzinger on Divine Causality in Evolutionary Creation”

I am thrilled to announce that I’ve just published an article for a special issue of the academic journal Scientia et Fides dedicated to Philosophical and Theological Aspects of Evolution. The essay, entitled “Machine or Melody?  Joseph Ratzinger on Divine Causality in Evolutionary Creation,” argues that creation should be thought of less as an intelligently designed machine that requires divine interventions for its development and more as a divine drama or masterpiece story that is continually being told as its plot unfolds naturally over the course of time.

Scientia et Fides is a peer-reviewed, online academic journal published twice a year by the Faculty of Theology of Nicolaus Copernicus University, in Torun, in collaboration with the research group “Science, Reason and Faith” (CRYF) at the University of Navarra. My article, along with the other essays recently published, is available free here.
