Explore biology-life-as God created it! From the smallest (and yet still incredibly complex) bacteria to the largest mammals, students will read about the life of insects, reptiles, birds, and mammals, as well as the science of biology itself. 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 readers 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
