Unitarian Universalist

"Michael Dowd's marvelous use of scientific information, religious metaphor, humor, and sheer delight in his subject(s) carries us to new places where evolution and the deep stories of religion converge. His book is a gift for our time."
REV. LAUREL HALLMAN, SENIOR MINISTER, FIRST UNITARIAN CHURCH OF DALLAS


"Dowd has given us a bridge across one of the major chasms of our times-religion and evolution. His passion for both science and religion is contagious. Reading his book, one can see that the discourse itself has just evolved to a whole new level!"
REV. MARLIN LAVANHAR, SENIOR MINISTER, ALL SOULS UNITARIAN CHURCH, TULSA


"Michael Dowd is one of the most popular presenters we've had the pleasure to host at the First Unitarian Society of Madison. Now, with a book-length treatment of his ‘gospel of evolution,' he provides us with a treasure trove of cogent information, practical application, and just plain inspiration. Dowd successfully meets the challenge of addressing seekers across the theological spectrum, and gives modern, secular readers a fresh perspective on traditional religious themes and usages. This is a book I would gladly (and securely) recommend, not only to members of my own humanist-inclined congregation but to my evangelical relatives as well!"
REV. MICHAEL SCHULER, SENIOR MINISTER, FIRST UNITARIAN SOCIETY OF MADISON


"The great scourge of our time is not immorality, drugs, or greed. Rather, the greatest threat of our age is that so many of us believe in our hearts that life is without meaning or purpose, and thus our actions reflect this. Michael Dowd has methodically demonstrated in this book that a modern, rational, scientific worldview does not lead to nihilism. Rather, a full-embrace of a scientifically based understanding of the world is key to a powerful religious faith that offers us meaning, wonder, joy, and tremendous hope for solving our most pressing global and human problems."
SALLY BETH SHORE, COMMUNITY MINISTER, UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST CONGREGATION OF THE SWANNANOA VALLEY


“This book is a meditation on five years of conversation with Americans of all religious persuasions on the meaning of revelation in an age of secular inquiry. It acknowledges the many flash points of conflict between some orthodox doctrines and the current state of scientific theory about the origins of the universe and of life. A most helpful bridge between alternative visions of worth, destiny, and salvation.”
JOHN BREWER, TECHNICAL WRITER, UU EPIC OF EVOLUTION ENTHUSIAST


"A joy and inspiriation to read, Michael's visionary words lay to rest the tired if not fraudulent argument that there's a conflict between faith and science. I admit I'm at times discouraged, confronting the problems of the world, and wonder if we even have time for this. But story by story I am uplifted. Here is the motivation for doing good with our lives: we are inextricably the creation creating, and if we're not participationg in the healing, we're in the way."
JIM SCOTT, SINGER-SONGWRITER


"Amidst the quarrels between scientists and fundamentalists, theists and atheists, liberals and conservatives, comes this wonderful book about our common journey and the stupendous story that we all share. Michael Dowd’s worldview is desperately needed if we are to find a future together on this tiny little planet."
PETER MAYER, SINGER-SONGWRITER
