A Dynamic Educational Resource - Teaching high school level science from a Biblical perspective.

Teachers and students will find clear biological answers proving science and Scripture fit together to honor the Creator. This dynamic educational resource helps young people not only learn science from a biblical perspective, but also helps them know how to defend their faith in the process.

The three units and nineteen chapters:

Covers in-depth topics such as genes and Genesis, the roll of natural selection, embryonic development, as well as DNA and the magnificent origins of life Powerfully refutes the evolutionary worldview that life simply evolved by chance over millions of years--Provides exceptional insights and clarity to patterns of order in living things, including the promise of healing and new birth in Christ Offers a fill-in-the-blank or short answer study page at the end of each chapter so students may test their comprehension Helps students know how to defend their faith scientifically


About the Author:
After starting his 30-year college teaching career as a non-Christian evolutionist, Dr. Gary Parker became a zealous creationist, eventually serving as professor of biology at the Institute for Creation Research in San Diego, lecturing worldwide for both ICR and Answers in Genesis, writing five science textbooks and seven creation books (translated into over 10 languages), and appearing in numerous films, videos and television programs. Dr. Parker and his wife, Mary, also run family camps, workshops, and credit courses through the Creation Adventures Museum near their home in Arcadia, Florida.


Review:
My son and I clapped heartily for the college senior on the stage. He was the sole creationist debating three pro-evolution professors on the creation/evolution controversy and holding his own very well. The sad thing was that he was attending a local “Christian” college.

In the past, students attending Christian colleges did not have to worry about having their creationist beliefs undermined by the faculty. Unfortunately, that is no longer the case. To strengthen parents and young people and help them develop a strong Christian worldview, Dr. Gary Parker has written the second in the Creation Foundation Series, Building Blocks in Life Science.

Dr. Parker divides the book into three sections: "Biological Changes," "Patterns in Structure and Development," and "DNA and the Origin of Life." He further subdivides the units into chapters on genes, natural selection, various aspects of creation and Darwinism, classification, development of life within the embryo, chemical evolution, DNA, and other subjects. Dr. Parker discusses the facts, why evolution cannot explain the evidence, and how creation does. Each chapter concludes with a short worksheet/quiz. The answers to the questions are in the back.

The book is aimed at upper-level high school students and college students. The writing is direct but difficult reading for many who have been away from science classes for a few years. I would not have high school students try this book until they have completed biology.

Dr. Parker writes well. The material is fascinating. I learned more about genetics than I ever expected to know, including why the Jurassic Park-style of cloning could not have happened and why evolutionists are so intent on finding life on Mars. One small problem occurred in Chapter 5, where the numbers used in the text did not coincide with the numbers used in the chart. Having a glossary would also be helpful. Dr. Parker utilizes a number of Scriptures, including Colossians 1:17 and I Peter 3:15.

I recommend Building Blocks in Life Science to all upper-level high school students, college students, and adults interested in the creation/evolution controversy. – Debbie W. Wilson, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Creation Biology
Creation Biology is the study of biological processes and organisms, while operating under the assumption that God created life on Earth. The discipline is premised on the idea that God created a finite number of discrete created kinds or baramin. While these forms of life have the ability to vary and even undergo speciation, they cannot arise spontaneously from non-life, cannot interbreed outside of their kind, and cannot increase in genetic complexity.
