The Reverend Tim Heaton is an Anglican Priest in parish ministry in the Diocese of Salisbury. He lives in North Dorset.
What does a suffering God have to do with Darwinian theory? In this five-session course, Tim Heaton brings the crisis of faith brought about by the death of Darwin's 10-year old daughter and the arguments subsequently developed in The Origin of Species, movingly captured in the film Creation, into dialogue with the traditional Lenten meditation on Jesus's temptation in the wilderness. The perspective is enriched by engaging with the writings of contemporary theologians and scientists. This is a course for twenty-first century Christians and I commend it warmly. (The Rt Revd Stephen Conway, Bishop of Ely)
