Abstract

Few issues have presented so succinctly the tension faced by colleges and universi- ties affiliated with the Stone-Campbell Movement than Charles Darwin’s theo- ry of evolution. Among those institutions, Abilene Christian University has expe- rienced a remarkable evolution of its own in dealing with the subject. As viewed through the writings of its faculty and other affiliated voices, the university’s sixty-year struggle with Darwinism provides an example of how one academic institution attempted to balance its faith tradition with its academic calling.
