Seems to have been rushed out with undue haste following the publication of the first edition of this book, leading to inaccurate accounts of the views expressed herein, not to speak of a string of scientifically inaccurate claims. 1 On a not unconnected point, one rather alarming development since the publication of the first edition has been reports of some no doubt well-meaning Christians asking fellow believers whether they hold to ‘the Alexander view on creation and evolution’ or, even worse, whether they are in the ‘Alexander group’ on such matters.
So Christians are by definition those who believe in a creator God; they are creationists. Now of course there is the slight problem that in common usage the term ‘creationist’ is attached to a particular set of beliefs held by some Christians, as well as by some Muslims and Jews, and these beliefs relate to the particular way in which it is thought that God has created. For example, some creationists believe that the earth is 10,000 years old or less. Other creationists believe that the earth is very old, but that God has intervened in a miraculous way at various stages of creation, for example to bring about new species.
Some have written in with nice things to say, plus around 50 more questions or so for further comment. My apologies to those who have received less than detailed replies – life is too short. But I have tried to include extra material in this edition to address at least some of these FAQs and ‘matters arising’. My thanks are due to those who have written in response to the first edition with corrections and suggestions for the ‘next edition’ (meaning now this one). In particular Pablo de Felipe and colleagues in Madrid picked up some important corrections during the preparation of the Spanish edition.
