Every Sparrow that Falls to the Ground: The Cost of Evolution and the Christ-Event

Denis Edwards
Issued Date: 24 Feb 2007


Contemporary biology presents us with a 3.5 billion year story of life, a
story in which there is a great deal of pain, death and extinction of species.
For theology, this means an intensification of the old problem of natural
evil. This article argues that God does care for individual sparrows. It
proposes that we can think of the Spirit of God as being present in love to
each creature here and now and of each creature finding redemption in
Christ. It explores possible ways of understanding the meaning of redemption
for individual sparrows.
