Building Blocks In Life Science Book Review!!

As a Christian homeschooling family we are always on the lookout for new curriculum and books to help the children in their studies.  It has gradually become easier to find books that teach from a solid Biblical viewpoint than it was 10-12 years ago. Much of this, in my opinion, is due to Answers in Genesis and Lew Leaf Publishing Group! And, (to prove my point), one of these books is Building Blocks in Life Science by Gary Parker. Published, of course, by NLPG.

Growing up I wasn't very interested in anything science, whether biology, geology, etc. I loved Bible, History and English, in that order. However, now that I am older, I have realized just how much I missed out on by simply breezing through the Science classes without really applying myself! So even though this book is mainly designed for high-school age young people, I enjoyed reading through it myself. This is an excellent book that teaches Biology from a Biblical perspective. No wading through the "millions of years ago" and "our common ancestor was a monkey" junk. Just sound, scientific teaching with an eye to how it glorifies the Creator. I personally found the book very fascinating, and very well-written. It's not dry or boring; it actually makes Biology interesting. I especially liked the unit that covers DNA; to me this is such overwhelming evidence for a Creator! There are plenty of illustrations throughout and a "building inspection" (quiz) at the end of each chapter.

So, if you want your teenagers learning Biology from a Biblical perspective, I highly recommend Building Blocks in Life Science. NLPG has a wealth of other homeschooling books available as well; you can browse their books online at
