I found a book by a Christian biologist which is reported to be quite good at explaining evolution and saying how it does not conflict with a faith in god. Finding Darwin's God (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finding_Darwin%27s_God). Now you have another book about evolution from a Christian perspective, please, add it to your collection and give it a read.

Nate, please see my post on your Manifesto discussion (currently page 11). The organizational system of the boards can make it easy to miss new replies, which is why I'm calling you attention to it.
