This chapter explores the history of the American Scientific Affiliation from its founding in the 1940s until 1965. Attention is given to the organization’s gradual transition from its fundamentalist beginnings to its alignment with the ‘new evangelicalism.’ Its founders were suspicious of evolution and anything that appeared to contradict the Bible, but they had grown wary of the uncritical scientific claims preached from the pulpit and envisioned a group that could defend Christian doctrines, while improving the churches’ scientific credibility. With unexpected foresight, they refused to establish the ASA as an antievolutionary organization or to join forces with such groups. In doing so, they helped set a new course for the relationship between science and religion and, in turn, earned considerable criticism from their more conservative coreligionists.
