The Rev. Michael Dowd is one of the most inspiring speakers in America today on the subject of religion, faith and the evolutionary worldview.
He is the author of Thank God for Evolution: How the Marriage of Science and Religion Will Transform Your Life and Our World, a book endorsed by six Nobel laureates and other science luminaries, including noted skeptics and by religious leaders across the spectrum. He and his wife, Connie Barlow, an acclaimed science writer and family educator, have spoken to more than 1500 groups, as “America’s evolutionary evangelists”, since launching their itinerant ministry in 2002.
At home in both liberal and conservative settings, and uniquely gifted at building bridges between religious and non-religious people, Michael shares the epic of evolution, our common creation story, in ways that uplift and expand heart, mind, and soul. An outspoken religious naturalist, his passion is showing how an evolutionary understanding of human nature can inspire and empower each of us to live with greater integrity, joy, and zest for life. New Hampshire Public Television recently aired a 27-minute documentary on Rev. Dowd’s ministry.
