Tracing the dual history of Evolutionism and Creationism, this workbook presents opening arguments from both sides, clearly showing the loopholes in evolutionary thought as well as how creationism melds old & new evidence into a biblically supported model. Looking at both "discoveries" as well as cultural shifts, this is a fascinating study of both sides of the "war of the worldviews". Each chapter concludes with review questions and extra projects. Black and white photos are included throughout. 160 pages, softcover; answers included.
Biologist, chemist, physiologist, and geologist (and very well acquainted with tadpoles) Dr. Gary Parker started out his academic career as an atheist and an evolutionist. But everything changed when he met Jesus. So, when this author writes about what evolutionists believe, why its not the truth and how creationism is the way to go - he knows what he is talking about. Building Blocks in Science is an interesting, scientifically and Biblically based, well researched, in-depth study on Creationism. Beginning with a clear look at Evolution and Creationism, this book uses dinosaurs and human origins to discuss many interesting themes, including dinosaurs and birds, dinosaurs in recorded history, errors in the evolutionists evidence; Nebraska Man, science vs. evolution, and how we are made in Gods image. Each section concludes with a Building Inspection segment - interesting questions to help remember the material (all the answers are found at the back of the book). Helpful time-lines and tables are scattered throughout the text. On every page black and white illustrations highlight the data. Scattered throughout are side-bars suggesting interesting bonus projects for the individual and class.
Aimed at middle and high school age Building Blocks in Science will catch the attention of individual students, classes in schools and churches, and family-style discussion and devotion groups. As with all well prepared youth texts, adults will find much food for thought and reference in this volume. Donna Eggett, ChristianBookPreviews.com
