Karl Giberson is an internationally known scholar of science-and-religion and one of America’s leading participants in the creation/evolution controversy. He was the founding editor of Science & Theology News, the leading publication in its field until it ceased publication in 2006, and editor-in-chief of Science & Spirit magazine from 2003-2006. He has published over a hundred articles, reviews, and essays, both technical and popular, and written four books: Worlds Apart: The Unholy War Between Science and Religion (1993), Species of Origins: America's Search for a Creation Story (2002, with Don Yerxa), Oracles of Science: Celebrity Scientists Versus God and Religion (2007, with Mariano Artigas), and Saving Darwin: How to Be a Christian and Believe in Evolution (2008).
