Roman Catholic

“In Thank God for Evolution Michael Dowd has produced a thoughtful, timely, challenging—and readable—synthesis of science and spirituality. This compelling book is the product of candid reflection on the religious and ethical significance of evolution and contemporary cosmology in the spirit of Thomas Berry and Teilhard de Chardin. The author's generosity of soul and depth of ecological concern have allowed him to create a challenging spiritual vision out of an exceptionally wide variety of sources.”
JOHN F. HAUGHT, DISTINGUISHED PROFESSOR OF THEOLOGY, GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY; AUTHOR OF DEEPER THAN DARWIN; CHRISTIANITY AND SCIENCE; AND IS NATURE ENOUGH?


"For Catholics who are worried that evolution has nothing to offer them but random Godlessness, this is the book to get. Mind you, it may sometimes be challenging. Traditional concepts, like ‘original sin,' get re-expressed with new words, like ‘our lizard legacy.' But the courageous will discover the same joy, energy, and spirituality that fill the author as he explores an evolutionary view of God and Creation. Take courage-and read it!"
CHRIS CORBALLY, SJ, VICE DIRECTOR OF THE VATICAN OBSERVATORY


"Thank God for Evolution is a timely book, giving us dozens of reasons why we need to take evolution seriously. Not only does Dowd describe evolution, perhaps more importantly he shows that to understand ourselves, we need to understand evolution. Dowd explores new terrain by revealing how evolution is relevant to ethics, community building, sexuality, spirituality and a viable future for the Earth community. Thank God for Evolution is a marvellous blend of science and religion, with important insights for a new era of Life on Earth."
HEATHER EATON, FACULTY OF THEOLOGY, SAINT PAUL UNIVERSITY, OTTAWA


"This is a work of many brilliant and provocative insights. A timely contribution to an ongoing dialogue so essential to a better quality of human life for the future."
DIARMUID O'MURCHU, AUTHOR OF QUANTUM THEOLOGY AND EVOLUTIONARY FAITH


"Michael Dowd's book, Thank God for Evolution, is a doorway into a new and glorious transformational moment for the history of religion as it enters into its cosmological phase."
SR. GAIL WORCELO, SGM, GREEN MOUNTAIN MONASTERY


"Thank God For Evolution is a treasure for our time! Here are ten thousand reasons and ways to step out of our little thought boxes, our self-absorbed fears, and enter the grandeur and grit of our true identity. Through Michael Dowd’s gifted writing, information becomes inspiration, and the discoveries of the sciences are the on-going Revelation of a Cosmos which is God’s Self-Expression and Delight, where we and everyone and everything belongs.”
SR. MARY SOUTHARD, CSJ, ARTIST AND CO-FOUNDER OF SPIRITEARTH


"So many today are starving for a meaningful, timely spirituality. Thank God for Evolution will help you to celebrate that the Creator (however you understand that Mystery) has used an evolutionary mode of creating this magnificent universe and invites each of us to be ‘co-creators' at this crucial time in Earth's history."
SR. PAULA GONZALEZ, SC, UNIVERSE STORY/CREATION CARE PRESENTER AND SOLAR ACTIVIST


"Thank God for Evolution 'binds us back to origin' which is the root meaning of the word 'religion'. In reading this book we are at once bound back and then propelled forward into true evolutionary integrity."
SR. BERNADETTE BOSTWICK, SGM, GREEN MOUNTAIN MONASTERY


"With creativity and enthusiasm, Michael Dowd skillfully presents an ecological theology emerging out of the new cosmology. He makes evolution and complex scientific concepts more understandable, while making the central tenets of Christianity a little more acceptable and a lot more hopeful. This book is a significant contribution to re-visioning Christian faith within the Universe Story."
FR. JOSEPH MITCHELL, CP, DIRECTOR OF THE PASSIONIST EARTH & SPIRIT CENTER
