“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.

    Peter, while you’re thanking all the people, little and big alike, please don’t forget to include your mother. We now know that you and Adam both had navels and are perhaps “linked” in other ways as well.

  • Brian P.

    Homo habilis males are estimated to have averaged about five feet in height and about 100 lbs. in weight. We really should thank the little people.

      And here I was going to invoke leprechauns. But I guess since Pete is of Germanic descent, leprechauns would have little interest in his wellbeing.

      • Brian P.

        Oh come on Chris. You know Leprechauns have nothing to do with sin coming into the world. That said, did you know homo heidelbergensis was generally larger than modern humans?

    Justin Bieber and Amy Poehler as Adam and Eve (respectively), and Charlie Sheen reprising his role as the serpent — and directed by Quentin Tarantino?

    May you find continued success!

  • Casey McCollum

    KEEP WRITING!!! You’re books have been a TREMENDOUS help to me.

  • Jim

    Now if Adam hadn’t “originally sinned” and mutated one of his exons into a sin gene, there wouldn’t have been a book .. :) Congratulations.

  • Mark

    You deserve it. It definitely helped me.

    “Let’s just say it moved me… INTO A BIGGER HOUSE!” Congratulations!

    Congrats!

    As I read your book, I’m reminded that the word courage contains the French root, “couer.” Underneath great scholarship and dynamic thinking, I hear the lub-dub, lub-dub echoing through its pages. Truly, an important piece of work.
