WHY EVOLUTION IS TRUE
Weaves together the many threads of modern work in genetics,
paleontology, geology, molecular biology, and anatomy to demonstrate that evolution has been firmly established as a scientific
truth. “For anyone who wishes a clear, well-written explanation of
evolution by one of the foremost scientists working on the subject,
Why Evolution is True should be your choice.”—Edward O. Wilson,
author of On Human Nature. “For those who may embrace Darwin’s hypothesis but have a difficult time defending it, Coyne, a
university professor of evolution and ecology, supplies readers
with more ammunition than they ever will need.”—Christian Science Monitor.

patients...but for all human beings, not to mention human culture,
human learning and human history.”—The New York Times.

how the marriage of science and Religion
Will Transform Your Life and Our World
With evidence from contemporary astrophysics, geology, biology,
anthropology, and evolutionary psychology, Reverend Michael
Dowd finds common ground in the science vs. religion debate.
“Masterfully unites rationality and spirituality in a world view
that celebrates the mysteries of existence and inspires each human
being to achieve a higher purpose in life....A must read for all, including scientists.”—Craig Mello, 2006 Nobel Prize in Physiology/
Medicine. “I am often asked how science and religion can co-exist.
This is a wonderful answer.”—John Mather, Chief Scientist at
NASA, 2006 Nobel Prize in Physics.
