Thank God for Evolution: How the Marriage of Science and Religion Will Transform Your Life and Our World is a theistic evolution book written by theologian Michael Dowd and published by Plume in 2009.
The book merges religion with science and claims that religious traditions and spirituality are fully compatible with the scientific evidence for evolution. According to Dowd “Many devout religious believers have rejected evolution because the process has been depicted as random, meaningless, mechanistic and godless,” however Dowd writes that many scientists are moving away from this earlier approach into what he calls “an emergent, developmental worldview.” Dowd further writes that evolution is meaningful and advocates a version of theistic evolution.
