Evolutionary Literacy: A Prerequisite for Th eological Education? 1 Daniel T. Spencer Environmental Studies, Rankin Hall, Th e University of Montana, 32 Campus Drive, Missoula, MT 59812, USA email@example.com Abstract Scientiﬁc literacy in evolutionary theory and scientiﬁc methods should be a required component of graduate theological education in the United States, so that pastors and theologians may participate constructively in contemporary debates about religion and evolution. Four areas of deﬁciency in theological edu- cation that should be addressed include the need to (1) reintegrate scientiﬁc lit- eracy back into theological education; (2) integrate the history of science and particularly evolution into Christian and church history courses; (3) engage in serious theological encounter with evolution; (4) integrate science into Christian ethics. I suggest that the following texts provide helpful resources for this project: Eugenie Scott’s Evolution and Creationism: An Introduction; Edward Larson’s Evo- lution: Th e Remarkable History of a Scientiﬁc Th eory; Ted Peters and Martinez Hewlitt’s Evolution from Creation to New Creation: Conﬂict, Conversation, and Convergence; and the work of the Center for Process Studies and John Cobb, Jr in engaging process theology with evolution.
