I just learned that The Evolution of Adam: What the Bible Does and Doesn’t Say about Human Origins┬áhas won the gold medal for the 2012 ForeWord Review Book of the Year Award in Religion (Adult Nonfiction).

This is a great honor, and reflects months of hard work I put in to bribing judges and hacking the voting system. If I am correct, I believe the next step is to make the book into a major motion picture featuring Justin Bieber and Amy Poehler as Adam and Eve (respectively), and Charlie Sheen reprising his role as the serpent.

All kidding aside, I am honored and humbled to have this little book recognized by ForeWord. I am thankful for the chance to have worked on this book with my friends at Brazos Press. And I am thankful to God for how the book has been received and for those who have found it helpful for thinking through their faith in today’s world.
