"Thank God for Evolution"

Rev. Michael Dowd, controversial author of the bestselling book Thank God for Evolution, is bringing a radical new sermon series to pulpits across America in what may be his boldest message yet to fellow Christians: “The New Atheists are God’s prophets, and believers need to listen up.”

According to Dowd, God is speaking pointedly to Christians today through some very unlikely messengers outside the church—namely New Atheists, such as Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, and Christopher Hitchens.


Of course, as the New Atheism so vividly illustrates, those who begin by thanking God for evolution easily end up thanking evolution for God.


  1. does it matter to these people that Dowd presents his message primarily to Unitarian congregations and other apostate denominations and that he has a checkered moral background?
