Anglican approaches to the theory of evolution were set by Lux Mundi (1883), a collection of essays edited by Bishop Charles Gore. Its contributors presented evolution as an intelligible account of the way God works creatively and continually within natural and historical process. Lux Mundi provided a helpful corrective to deism. The Episcopal theologian William Porcher DuBose (1836-1918) also viewed the theory of evolution sympathetically in his book High Priesthood and Sacrifice (1908), in which he considered atonement with God to be the ultimate evolution of humanity. See DuBose, William Porcher; see Gore, Charles.
