Publisher's Description

DISCOVER THE
WORLD OF LIFE AS GOD
CREATED IT!

The field of biology focuses on living things, from the smallest microscopic protozoa to the largest mammal. In this book you will read and explore the life of plants, insects, spiders and other arachnids, life in water, reptiles, birds, and mammals, highlighting God's amazing creatio. You will learn about the following and so much more:

  • How does biological classification give each different type of plant or animal a unique name?
  • In what ways are seeds spread around the world?
  • What food does the body use for long-term storage of energy?
  • How did biologists learn how the stomach digested food?
  • What plant gave George de Mestral the idea for Velcro?

For most of history, biologists used the visible appearance of plants or animals to classify them. They grouped plants or animals with similar-looking features into families. Starting in the 1990s, biologists have extracted DNA and RNA from cells as a guide to how plants or animals should be grouped. Like visual structures, these reveal the underlying design or creation.

The newest book in our Exploring series, Exploring the World of Biology is a fascinating look at life - from the smallest proteins and spores, to the complex life systems of humans and animals.

Interesting, up-to-date, well-planned and presented, Exploring the World of Biology will pique the curiosity of students, parents, and teachers. Not loaded down with dry lists for memorization, this book chronicles all the information expected of a good biology text in interesting narrations.

Starting with mushrooms, and the enigma biologists have sought to answer for decades, students move on happily through bacteria, amoeba, and such; the vagaries of biological naming; plants; food and digestion; people who have manipulated plants; insects and arachnids; water life; reptiles, birds, and mammals; and a very intriguing chapter on frauds, hoaxes, and wishful thinking. Scattered throughout are fascinating profiles of famous scientists -- with Christian scientists such as Louis Pasteur presented as true benefactors of humanity. Each chapter contains motivating black and white illustrations and ends with pertinent questions (an appendix contains the answers), and suggestions for interesting projects for further study. Exploring the World of Biology ably provides scientific data while honoring Genesis 1:1: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Science teacher, cartographer, and author John Hudson Tiner knows his subject well and displays a great facility for garnering his reader’s interest. His many books include textbooks, biographies, and Christian studies. Both homeschoolers and class rooms will find Exploring the World of Biology of value. It can be used by several age groups: older elementary grades being mentored by parents or teachers; middle school students using it independently with a bit of help from leaders; and high school students revisiting previously known information while learning intriguing side notes to these facts. Adult readers will find, as I did, that it makes fascinating reading with lots of little tidbits to drop into conversations. – Donna Eggett, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
