What they say about The Moral Mind

 round-dialogue-symbol_318-42570“Marking a true advance in the discussion of evolutionary explanations of morality, this book is highly recommended for all collections.”
David Gordon, Library Journal 

 “An extremely sensible little book. It does what I’m always trying to do myself – says things that are really rather obvious, but which have somehow got forgotten and become invisible. I particularly liked the bit about P G Wodehouse – and the discussion at the beginning about virtue having a bad name.”
Mary Midgley 

“Although the author is a Christian, the book seeks out the common ground that can be widely shared by people of different beliefs.” 
Network Review 

“It is an advantage to have such a widely schooled natural scientist write on the topic plugging a gap in coverage, since he easily spots the limitations of other discipline’s attempts to grapple with the subject matter. … The author packs much in … it is good to pause and take stock as one proceeds with the carefully crafted argument.”
Gerald Vintner, Reviews in Religion & Theology 

“This study of the human moral dimension by a trained scientist is useful… I recommend this book.”
Edward P. Echlin, Fourth World Review 

“This is an engaging, nicely targeted, and for its purposes well-informed little book surveying an array of contemporary perspectives on the subject of human moral awareness. It is written in a very easily accessible style and avoids technical terminology, so it will be especially welcome for readers having little or no specialized acquaintance with current moral exchanges. … well recommended.”
Paul D Janz, Theology

“This work is not held out as a comprehensive treatise on moral cognition. But it serves well as an introductory investigation that is guided by an author who has a profound regard for scientific truth, as well as an intellectual openness to the transcendent and the spiritual. The Moral Mind offers a stimulating introduction to the questions about conscience and morality that continue to hover over the investigation of the moral sense by philosophers and scientists, and that continue to inform the efforts of theists who struggle to reconcile scientific findings with an evolution-friendly understanding of creation and theology.”
Albert D Spalding, Metapsychology Online Reviews
