Roland Mushat Frye Dies
Frye was also the editor of Is God a Creationist? The Religious Case Against Creation-Science (1983; now out of print), a collection of essays that together (as Frye wrote in his prefatory overview) "present a comprehensive picture of central religious responses to, and rejections of, the oversimplified and misapplied literalism of modern creationism and creation-science"; the authors include Langdon Gilkey, Davis A Young, Conrad Hyers, Owen Gingerich, Pope John Paul II, and Frye himself, who contributed a prefatory overview and a concluding epilogue on "The two faces of God." Is God a Creationist? was recommended by James S Trefil "even to those who, like myself, prefer to conduct this particular battle solely on scientific grounds. It is immensely heartening to learn that creationists, if anything, are farther from the religious mainstream than they are from the scientific."
