    God Was not in the Wind: An Evolutionary Understanding of Popular Religion in the Philippines

    Jimmy Belita, CM

    Winner, National Book Award, Theology and Religion, 2006
    God Was not in the Wind is a modest contribution to a scanty pool of biology-based theological reflections on popular religion in the Philippines. Traditionally, theology uses philosophy as its framework in seeking understanding for the given faith, and recently theology has turned to the social sicences for the same purpose. In this work the biological theory of evolution is the model. The dynamics of popular religion expressed in religious and moral practices is interpreted according to evolutionary principles.
