You can see the previous winners here. Early on they were given to pure religionists like Mother Teresa and Thomas Torrance, but had recently been awarded to scientists who were friendly to religion, like Martin Rees and George F. R. Ellis. However, the last three winners have been religionists with a humanitarian bent, including the Dalai Lama, Tomàš Halík, and Desmond Tutu.
Who do you think will win? One guess per customer, and if you are the first person to correctly guess the winner, you will win your choice of either an audiobook of Faith Versus Fact, the new paperback of the book (out May 1), or a paperback of Why Evolution is True, all autographed and, if you wish, emblazoned with a cat drawing.
