Summary
"Creationism on Trial is Langdon Gilkey's blow-by-blow account of his experiences as a witness for the ACLU at the 1981 creationist trial in Little Rock, Arkansas. This courtroom drama between state-supported "creation science" fundamentalists and ACLU-supported scientists, theologians, and liberal teachers was an engrossing spectacle at the time and has been much talked about since. Gilkey, a renowned theological writer, brings to life principal characters and entertaining anecdotes from the trial and effortlessly translates the abstract religious concepts of the case into digestible language. Highlighted by a new introduction that takes into account new directions in the creationism debate, this book will once again provoke discussion in classes of theology and religion."--BOOK JACKET
