Before You Read

Dear reader,

We’ll get right to it: Young people today are departing the faith in historic numbers as the church is either unwilling or unable to address their questions on science and faith. BioLogos is hosting those tough conversations. Not with anger, but with grace. Not with a simplistic position to earn credibility on the left or the right, but a message that is informed, faithful, and hopeful.

Although voices on both sides are loud and extreme, we are breaking through. But as a nonprofit, we rely on the generosity of donors like you to continue this challenging work. Your tax deductible gift today will help us continue to counter the polarizing narratives of today with a message that is informed, hopeful, and faithful.

(2011) for ages 8+. This reference book provides a comprehensive overview of the evidence for evolution from the fields of biology, paleontology, and geology.


Billions of Years, Amazing Changes: The Story of Evolution Book CoverThrough the work of scientists over the past 150 years or so, we now have lots of evidence that helps us understand the processes of evolution that connect all living things. How did it all come together? This book provides a comprehensive overview from the fields of biology, paleontology, and geology. You will find chapters on Evidence from the Earth, How Fossils Form, The Adventures and Discoveries of Charles Darwin, Evolution, Variation, Natural Selection, Genetics, and much more. The Missing Links chapter is especially fascinating because it describes fairly recent discoveries of transitional forms between fish and land animals, dinosaurs and birds, and land mammals and whales. This is probably most useful as a reference book since it’s around 100 pages (though science-loving kids will want to dive in more!) and covers an impressive range of evolutionary science. Children and adults alike will enjoy expanding their understanding of evolutionary processes.
