Mount Darwin is among a group of almost 14,000 ft. mountains named after promoters of religious versions of evolutionary thinking. Rick Kennedy uses the climb as an opportunity to think about general education and how both the natural history of evolution and the ancient history of Jesus can find a home in the Aristotelian diversity of university methods.

Kennedy offers the academic foundations for the credibility and reliability of accounts of Jesus in the New Testament, while pointing out that these foundations have the same weaknesses and strengths that ancient history has in general. The strengths and weaknesses of natural history, Kennedy points out, differ from those of ancient history.

Overall, the book reminds both students and teachers of the wisdom of humility. RICK KENNEDY is Professor of History at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, California. He is the author of A History of Reasonableness: Testimony and Authority in the Art of Thinking.
