Joseph Smith and Charles Darwin: A Search for the Origins of Man (Bridgewood Publishing)
Author: Bryan Richards
Premise: Joseph Smith and Charles Darwin were remarkable contemporaries who began their lives on the opposite sides of the Atlantic, and ended on the opposite sides of the ideological spectrum. The same year Joseph recorded the First Vision, Charles was electrified with the idea that man is an evolved primate. Consequently, while Joseph Smith was having a revolutionary impact in the New World, Charles Darwin was having an evolutionary impact in the Old World. To understand how, we compare Smith’s science friendly theology with the real events that drove Darwin’s evolution centered biology.
In celebration of the 200th anniversary of Joseph Smith’s transcendent vision in the Sacred Grove, this book lays the Prophet’s revealed doctrines alongside Darwin’s evolutionary theories as each paradigm grapples with the fundamental nature of God and man, asking the bedrock question, “Are we the product of millions of years of natural selection or the offspring of God?”
