    Which book is it taken from? What about the rest of the chapter…?

    This is well known. Evolution was a common belief amongst early Muslim scientists, e.g. famously written about in Muqaddimah of Ibn Khaldun

    Creation of mankind is discussed in the following verses [3:59, 6:2, 6:133, 11:61, 15:26, 22:5, 21:30, 23:12, 24:45, 29:19-20, 32:7-8, 37:11, 55:14, 71:14, 76:1, 76:28]. The sequence of events resembles an evolutionary process, but with God as the initiator and sustainer, with mankind being given unique qualities at a point in time when ready.

    See the parable/allegory of Adam for information on the beginning of the test, its principles etc.
