In THANK GOD FOR EVOLUTION: How the Marriage of Science and Religion Will Transform Your Life and Our World (Viking/On-Sale Date: June 19, 2008/978-0-670-02045-4/$24.95) , Dowd transforms the current debate and clearly presents why it is now possible to view evolution as deeply meaningful, even sacred. Just as scientific theories evolve and expand over time with new discoveries and new information, Dowd proposes that divine revelation is not limited to the Bible, but continues to be discovered through science. “Facts are God’s native tongue,” he writes.

Dowd, an ordained Christian minister, and his wife Connie Barlow, an acclaimed science writer, are packing pews and leaving audiences across America awestruck with their programs that present evolution as theology, not theory, and science as divine revelation. Since 2002 the couple have lived out of a van, permanently traveling the continent, teaching and preaching the "Gospel of Evolution" -- a message that has earned them the moniker: America's Evolutionary Evangelists.
