Evolution of ManWhat is the Catholic Church's teaching on evolution? Did John Paul II declare that the theory of evolution is more than a hypothesis? How does the Church reconcile the Biblical account of Genesis when science tells a different story?

In his controversial speech on evolution in 1996, John Paul II said there is a “need for a correct interpretation of the inspired word, of a rigorous hermeneutics. It is fitting to set forth well the limits of the meaning proper to Scripture, rejecting undue interpretations which make it say what it does not have the intention of saying."

The Church maintains that science cannot contradict faith and that the books of Scripture were not intended to be used as a compendium of scientific facts. At the same time the Church distinguishes a difference between Darwinism and the theory of evolution. Browse this category to find books featuring the latest findings from Catholic and Christian scientists and theologians.  Of particular interest is Cardinal Ruffini's book, The Theory of Evolution Judged by Faith and Reason.
