A scene from the Leben der heiligen Altväter (1482)

Phillip E. Johnson, Who Put Darwin on Trial, Dies at 79

The Gospel Coalition

Phillip E. Johnson died peacefully in his sleep on Saturday, November 2, at the age of 79 at his home in Berkeley, California. Phil will probably be remembered publicly as the author of Darwin on Trial (1991), or as the godfather of the intelligent design movement. That’s fair, but behind those accomplishments was a remarkable life, and at the center of that life was a remarkable conversion.
