This book is the first in a new series of studies from the Institute for Creation Research. Targeted at youth, this fascinating book explores some of the most interesting areas of science: fossils, the errors of evolution, the evidences for creation, all about early man and human origins, dinosaurs, and even “races.”

Learn how scientists use evidence in the present, how historians use evidence of the past, and discover the biblical worldview, not evolution, that puts the two together in a credible and scientifically sounds way.

Having made his own journey of discovery, former evolutionist and author Dr. Gary Parker offers a unique and powerful perspective on the science of our world—past and present. Build your worldview on a faith that fits the scientific facts!

• Have you ever wondered about human fossils, “cave men,” skin color, “ape-men,” or why missing links are still missing?

• Want to discover when T. Rex was small enough to fit in your hand? Or how old dinosaur fossils are—and how we know the age of these bones?

• Learn how the Bible’s world view (not evolution’s) unities evidence from science and history into a solid creation foundation for understanding the origin, history, and destiny of life—including yours!

• Start reinforcing a strong foundation for learning with study questions, discussions, discussion topics, and more for home and school educators!

Parker uses formidable and popular teaching skills to focus on, for example, the chemical reaction between acids and bases, then zooms back out for the big-picture, scriptural evidence that God created all. By integrating his thorough knowledge of how the human body works with man's natural surroundings, Parker presents both a physiological and philosophical picture of our purposes on this planet.

ALSO INCLUDED: Helpful study questions, discussion topics, and more.


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:
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 it’s 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 evolutionist’s evidence; Nebraska Man, science vs. evolution, and how we are made in God’s 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

Book Jacket:
This book is the first in a series of studies in various fields of science from the Institute for Creation Research. In this first volume, former evolutionary biologist Gary Parker looks at life sciences, digging into physical structures from early man to fossils. Parker discusses DNA, the artistic skills of Neanderthal Man, and much more in this illustrated study.

Parker uses formidable and popular teaching skills to focus on, for example, the chemical reaction between acids and bases, then zooms back out for the big-picture, scriptural evidence that God created all. By integrating his thorough knowledge of how the human body works with man's natural surroundings, Parker presents both a physiological and philosophical picture of our purposes on this planet.
