Thank God for Evolution is a book by Michael Dowd that argues for a marriage of science and religion within an evolutionary paradigm.

It is endorsed by six Nobel Laureates: Craig Mello, John C. Mather, Thomas C. Schelling, Charles Townes, Frank Wilczek and Lee Hartwell.[1][2]

It was published by Council Oak Books in November 2006 and acquired in spring 2007 by Viking Penguin. In the book and in his sermons, Dowd presents evolution as a sacred epic of emerging complexity that can be seen as “14 billion years of grace.”[3]
