Explore biology-life-as God created it!

Classification, energy storage, digestion, early biologists, DNA, and other topics are all explored in easy to read chapters that always point the glory of creation back to God. Chapter highlights, illustrations, and questions are included for each chapter. 153 indexed pages, softcover. Line-listed answers included.

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

    I am really enjoying this book so far. We end up looking up youtube videos to watch to remember more of what we read. We dissected a mushroom, and we just make up things as we go along that go along with the lessons and readings in the book.

    Here are some various observations I made:

    --There are 14 chapters that are approximately 10 pages each, ranging from microscopic organisms to mammals.

    --Although it is listed as a middle school text, it can be used and adapted for different ages and skill levels.

    --Each chapter contains an 'Explore More' section, which includes questions, discussion ideas, and research options.

    --All of the pictures and illustrations are in black and white. This was a concern initially, since my boys really seem to be drawn in to the colorful pictures that generally accompany science texts. However, this seemed to be less important as I read the material, and the illustrations were still well done. I also realized that having black and while illustrations was probably the primary the cost of the book was so low.

    --The material was evolution free and had an underlying scriptural focus. The NIV translation was used for all of the Bible references.

    I think what I liked most about Exploring the World of Biology was that it covered the basics in a thorough manner scientifically, but it also focused on the stories of the people and the discoveries involved. History was included in a very natural manner, and not simply as an add on piece of information. It is the first science book that I have reviewed that I can realistically see myself being able to use and adapt with each of my boys, ranging from 1st to 9th grades. It is very well written and user-friendly. I'm pretty sure at this point that this is the direction we will go in for the next school year.

    Disclaimer: I received a complementary copy of this book from the publisher for review purposes.
