“I’d like to thank the academy, and all the little people…”: The Evolution of Adam wins a gold medal

I just learned that The Evolution of Adam: What the Bible Does and Doesn’t Say about Human Origins has 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.
