With a new foreword by Rupke,(N) and a new preface by the author. First published in 1951, Genesis and Geology describes the background of social and theological ideas and the progress of scientific researches which, between them, produced the religious difficulties that afflicted the development of science in early industrial England. We learn that the furor over the Origin of Species was nothing new; earlier discoveries in geology had already presented major challenges to prevailing religious thought.
