The Ascent of Man by Henry Drummond

Originally published in 1904, The Ascent of Man sought to correct what Drummond felt was an oversight in the evolutionary biology research being done in his day. Most scientists, he says, accept without question that the struggle for life is the force of evolution. What they overlook is what he calls the struggle for the life of others, or the struggle for reproduction. Drummond combines his own theories with a heavy dose of Christian doctrine to arrive at what may best be called theological biology, which assumes man to be the greatest, highest purpose of the universe. Anyone interested in the history of evolution, its proponents and its detractors, and the long-standing war between religion and science will find Drummonds contribution provocative and controversial. Scottish evangelist HENRY DRUMMOND (1851-1897) also wrote the influential The Greatest Thing in the World (1880), a meditation on Scripture that continues to deeply move readers today.

Many of his writings were too nicely adapted to the needs of his own day to justify the expectation that they would long survive it, but few men exercised more religious influence in their own generation, especially on young men. Drummond was educated at Edinburgh University , where he displayed a strong inclination for physical and mathematical science. The religious element was an even more powerful factor in his nature, and disposed him to enter the Free Church of Scotland. While preparing for the ministry, he became for a time deeply interested in the evangelizing mission of Moody and Sankey , in which he actively co-operated for two years. In he became lecturer on natural science in the Free Church College on Lynedoch Street in Glasgow , which enabled him to combine all the pursuits for which he felt a vocation.

He sees evolution as divinely guided-- a position that made him no friends on either side of the debate. Whether these seeings are there at all is another matter. But, even if visions, every thinking mind, through whatever medium, should look at them. What Science has to say about himself is of transcendent interest to Man, and the practical bearings of this theme are coming to be more vital than any on the field of knowledge. The thread which binds the facts is, it is true, but a hypothesis. As the theory, nevertheless, with which at present all scientific work is being done, it is assumed in every page that follows.
