Resurrection and the Costs of Evolution: A Dialogue with Rahner on Noninterventionist Theology

The scientific claim that the costs of evolution are built into the process by which life emerges brings a new intensity to the old problem of evil. One partial response is to challenge the idea of an interventionist God who overturns or bypasses the laws of nature in favor of a God who works consistently through nature. Another is a theology of Resurrection that offers hope for the final transformation of the whole creation in Christ. In conversation with Karl Rahner, the author explores a theology of Resurrection that is both noninterventionist and transformative.
