Religious Naturalist

"The beauty of the Epic of Evolution is its capacity to anchor and birth a multitude of religious responses. Dowd offers us an impassioned vision, forged during his encounters with countless seekers, of how the Great Story can enrich, and indeed make sense of, traditional religious orientations while leaving plenty of room for readers not comfortable with God language. Refreshing, honest, unpretentious, and deep."
URSULA GOODENOUGH, PROFESSOR OF BIOLOGY, WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY; AUTHOR OF THE SACRED DEPTHS OF NATURE


"Michael Dowd's new book should be made into a Hollywood film: An evangelical Christian preacher (Michael) and an atheist evolutionary naturalist (Connie Barlow) fall in love, marry one another, and give birth to their stunning new vision that promises healing for so many. If you love God, if you love the animals, if you love Jesus, if you love the flowers and Sun and Moon, here's the book that will help you gather all these loves together."
BRIAN SWIMME, PROFESSOR OF COSMOLOGY, CALIFORNIA INSTITUTE OF INTEGRAL STUDIES, SAN FRANCISCO; CO-AUTHOR OF THE UNIVERSE STORY


"Dowd belongs to that tradition of religious thinkers, from Thomas Aquinas to Thomas Berry, that illuminates the Universe as revelation of the Divine. Aimed straight at the unnecessary split between Christianity and current cosmology, this significant work has revolutionary implications for our collective worldview. Michael Dowd is a voice the world needs."
DREW DELLINGER, DIRECTOR OF SOCIAL ECOLOGY, JOHN F. KENNEDY UNIVERSITY; FOUNDER OF POETS FOR GLOBAL JUSTICE; AUTHOR OF LOVE LETTER TO THE MILKY WAY


"Michael Dowd's book Thank God for Evolution is a heroic accomplishment. Not only does it succeed in blazing new trails between the heart and the mind, it does so with the exciting, seemingly dangerous, soulforce of an Old Testament prophet. No idle entertainment here—this book fills you with wonder and changes your life!”
JESSICA RICE, MUSICIAN AND EDUCATOR, OAKLAND, CA


"Read this book. Then read it again. Then share it with everyone you know. Dowd's comprehensive synthesis of evolutionary psychology, biology, and theology is a 21st century operating manual for the consciously evolving human being. Thank God for Evolution is not only a brilliant articulation of the profound interconnections between science and spirituality, it is also a practical guidebook for living an evolutionary, radiant, scientifically informed and faith-foundationed life."
HARRY PICKENS, PIANIST/COMPOSER, GROUP FACILITATOR, CEO of IN TUNE WITH LIFE


“Michael Dowd is a pioneering voice for a deep spirituality that both celebrates the wisdom of science and is juicy with love, intimacy, and aliveness. With intelligence, enthusiasm, and humor he welcomes us to participate in the unfolding discovery of our own spirituality within the sacred revelation that is our evolving universe.”
DUANE ELGIN, AUTHOR OF PROMISE AHEAD; VOLUNTARY SIMPLICITY; THE LIVING UNIVERSE


“This is a much needed book, even a Holy Book, a scripture for a spiritual renewal available to all religions as well as people living outside organized religion. Michael writes with verve and courage. He is a true Evangel, bringing a message of wholeness to everyone. His arguments for recognizing the inherent relationship of religion and science as the YinYang of the human experience are compelling.”
BILL BRUEHL, PLAYWRIGHT, SENECA, SC


"There is so much in this book to admire and to take inspiration from. Michael’s gutsy reframing of Original Sin is especially welcomed. The book is a timely bridge, a reconciliation not only of science and religion but of all that keeps us separate. It is above all, a compassionate and masterful exploration, a prophetic vision of our evolving human nature. Michael delivers the magnificent story of the universe straight to the heart."
PAULINE LA BEL, COSMOLOGICAL PLAYWRIGHT AND SINGER


"A recovering fundamentalist reveals the profound spiritual power of our evolutionary story. A must for both sides of the debate." —PETER RUSSELL, AUTHOR OF THE GLOBAL BRAIN AND FROM SCIENCE TO GOD"No one brings evolution up closer and more personal than Michael Dowd. Convincingly making science itself a gift of God, Dowd shows us a meaningful, living universe. It's high time to know our true evolutionary potential as this book shows it and to engage in fulfilling our evolutionary destiny together!"
ELISABET SAHTOURIS, EVOLUTIONARY BIOLOGIST, AUTHOR OF EARTHDANCE: LIVING SYSTEMS IN EVOLUTION AND A WALK THRU TIME: FROM STARDUST TO US


"Cutting edge organizational thinking has revealed that focusing on the positive can lead to real change, focusing on problems is lifeless. While pondering the survival of the human species may be a powerful motivator for some, focusing on humanity's place in an evolving sacred Universe will change our relationship with planet Earth for centuries to come. This is what Michael Dowd does artfully and powerfully. This is a book to read and re-read, but also to share with others and discuss."
JIM SCHENK, EDITIOR OF WHAT DOES GOD LOOK LIKE IN AN EXPANDING UNIVERSE?, CO-FOUNDER OF ENRIGHT RIDGE URBAN ECO-VILLAGE


"Science is handing us an incredible, mind blowing creation story. What do we do with this grand epic? How do we integrate it? What does it mean for who we are? Thank God for Evolution is a book we can tightly hold onto to help us through the 'shattering' and into a whole new world.”
JENNIFER MORGAN, AUTHOR OF BORN WITH A BANG; FROM LAVA TO LIFE; MAMMALS WHO MORPH


“The time of ‘flat earth’ religions is over, so too is the era of a flattened science blind to higher dimensions. We are in the midst of a Copernican revolution of immense proportions as the awe inspiring vastness of time and space and truths that Seers have long proclaimed- stand equally revealed. Thank God for Evolution is the gospel (good news) of our times, announcing a radically new relationship between science and spirit.”
DANA LYNNE ANDERSON, EVOLUTIONARY ARTIST, FOUNDER OF AWAKENING ARTS, ILLUSTRATOR OF BORN WITH A BANG; FROM LAVA TO LIFE; MAMMALS WHO MORPH
