Buddhist
“A publishing event of rare significance, this exhilarating book moves us at last beyond false separations of science and religion. With true evangelical fervor, it liberates both heart and mind in service to the great adventure of our time: the rediscovery of our mutual belonging and our kinship with all life. With breathtaking clarity, Michael Dowd not only treats us to a panoramic vision of our origins, but reveals how this Great Story can grace our lives right now with courage, creativity, and peace of mind. Such gifts are not only our birthright, they are essential now for our survival.”
JOANNA MACY, BUDDHIST ECO-PHILOSOPHER, AUTHOR OF WORLD AS LOVER, WORLD AS SELF; AND COMING BACK TO LIFE


"Michael Dowd gives us his creative mind and caring heart to offer his insight and wisdom in this innovative new answer to one of the core questions of our time—the meaning of our existence in the modern Universe. Everyone concerned with the deepest questions of science, religion, who we are, and our place in the Universe absolutely should read this book!"
JACK SEMURA, BUDDHIST PRACTITIONER, THEORETICAL PHYSICIST, PORTLAND STATE UNIVERSITY


"Michael Dowd offers us a lens for observing that our understanding of God necessarily evolves through the public revelation of science. We can now realize and experience that God is here, now, that Creation is ongoing, and that God is greater than the limited knowledge and expression of historic human thought and language. I thank Michael for offering that at the core of religion and spirituality is our aspiration to experience the 'integrity' of Self, Other, and The Whole—and that anything that diminishes that integrity is a 'SIN' (Sensed Integrity Nullification). I hope you, like I am, are inspired by this great work of clarifying the great stories of Creation—and that this book furthers your own great work in the world!"
MARK R. JONES, DHARMA TEACHER, CEO, THE SUNYATA GROUP AND THE INTEGRAL WELLNESS GROUP

Hindu
"How did we as humans get to be where we are? Where does humanity go from here? For centuries, answers offered by the Religions and Evolutionary Theory have been deemed to be contradictory. The proverbial "twains" that have yet to meet, causing us to think that they never can or will. Michael Dowd's book Thank God for Evolution demonstrates convincingly that they indeed can and do so. They are the two sides to the same coin of divinity!! I recommend it to the skeptics on both sides.
SESH VELAMOOR, TRUSTEE, FOUNDATION FOR THE FUTURE; PAST PRESIDENT, INDIA ASSOCIATION OF WESTERN WASHINGTON (IAWW)

Integral
"Michael Dowd's unrestrained passionate call is as infectious as it is timely. And he’s right! It is nothing less than urgent that we abandon any and all notions of a static universe, or a static god for that matter, so that we will be able to take up the reins of our cosmic inheritance and endeavor boldly and heroically to create the future in the most conscious way possible."
ANDREW COHEN, SPIRITUAL TEACHER, FOUNDER OF ENLIGHTENNEXT MAGAZINE


"Few subjects today arouse more passion than the culture war between traditional religion and evolutionary science. Dowd's timely book offers a refreshing third way and introduces us to a promising new field emerging on the edges of contemporary culture-evolutionary spirituality. Integrating breakthrough ideas from evolutionary psychology, neuroscience, physics, and evolutionary biology, Dowd makes a compelling case for why the spiritual and religious impulse is not erased but profoundly enriched by our ever-expanding knowledge of self, nature, and cosmos. With the enthusiasm of an evangelical and the open-mindedness of a scientist, he offers the reader a smorgasbord of fascinating new ideas, and begins a discussion about the theological future of Christianity that is long overdue."
CARTER PHIPPS, EXECUTIVE EDITOR, ENLIGHTENNEXT MAGAZINE


"According to Sir Francis Bacon, 'A little science estranges a man from God; a lot of science brings him back.' Now Michael Dowd has shown us how this is also true of evolution itself. In fact, the story of how the universe has developed and progressed through time is increasingly being recognized as a profound spiritual teaching destined to edify humanity for ages to come. Thank God for Evolution is thus an important work in this growing effort to discover and appreciate the 'revelation of evolution' in its fullness. I recommend it wholeheartedly."
STEVE MCINTOSH, AUTHOR OF INTEGRAL CONSCIOUSNESS AND THE FUTURE OF EVOLUTION


"In Thank God for Evolution Michael Dowd deftly transcends the raging battle between science and religion, while embracing the goodness, truth, and beauty of both worlds. His work is an integral masterstroke that is accessible to everyone--utterly serious and factually rigorous while at the same time lighthearted and uplifting. The poet Rumi said that the soul is here for its own joy, and Michael manages to evoke this sense while teaching evolutionary dynamics. As an adult educator, I say this is the way learning should be, and I can’t recommend this book enough!”
SUSAN CANNON, INTEGRAL EDUCATOR AND FUTURIST


"Michael Dowd is one of my heroes... I'm pleased to see more and more people address the patterns of human emergence. Michael has made a significant contribution to understanding this critical aspect of human nature."
DON BECK, CO-FOUNDER OF THE NATIONAL VALUES CENTER, CEO OF SPIRAL DYNAMICS GROUP


"Michael has written a beautiful book that embraces everyone, trumps outdated disagreements, and takes us all to the next level of hope and inspiration. This Great Story can unite us all in a passionate and intellectually satisfying vision of why we are here and how magnificent it all is. Read—and be engaged in the real hero's journey—the journey to the center of everything and to the center of yourself.”
CINDY WIGGLESWORTH, PRESIDENT, CONSCIOUS PURSUITS, INC.


"Every so often a book comes along with a message so fresh, so timely, and so encompassing that it seems it could actually change the world. This is just such a book-demonstrating that the scientifically revealed story of evolution is the most inspiring creation myth of all."
CRAIG HAMILTON, NEW DIMENSIONS RADIO, AUTHOR AND JOURNALIST
