Not recommended by James Anderson.

An irenic but ultimately unsatisfying attempt to reconcile evangelical theology with evolutionary theory.

Recommended by Trevin Wax.

An intruging study of European versus American worldviews, even if you disagree with some of Rifkin's stances.

Sure to be a controversial book on modern political theory (in particular "just war" theory) from a biblical perspective.
