Billions of Years, Amazing Changes: The Story of Evolution

Published on October 01, 2011

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.


Dear BioLogos reader ...

In the escalating vitriol in our culture, “science” and “faith” have found each other on opposite sides of a polarized divide. Truth and community are under attack.

If there is one thing the pandemic has shown us, it is what science can and cannot do. Scientists and doctors have done amazing things during the pandemic—identified the virus, treated the disease, and developed safe vaccines that work.

But in these polarized times, science can’t reduce anger, forgive sins, build mutual respect, or fill us with compassion for others.

Science alone can’t give us hope. Faith can. Join BioLogos today in reaching a world desperate for hope. Your tax-deductible donation will be the difference between someone encountering misinformation, or a thoughtful, truthful, and hopeful Christian perspective that shows faith and science working hand in hand.
