    This title in the Wonders of Creation series dives into the ocean. Through interesting text and an abundance of appealing pictures, students will learn about the ocean and its many facets from a creationist point of view. The book includes eleven chapters, which include: introduction to the ocean, oceanic research; physical characteristics of the ocean; the composition of the oceans' waters; tides, waves, and currents; weather; harvesting the ocean; marine life; exploring the coral reef; oceanic vessels; and the Genesis flood.

    Now updated, a page at the front of the book explains how to use the content with three different learning levels and the page content has color-coded backgrounds for clarity. Text on white background is for 5th/6th, text on light green is for 7th/8th, and text on blue background is for 9th- 11th. An 11"x 24" poster of the ocean's depths is included at the back of the book. Hardcover, 96 pages.

    A study guide is available for The Ocean Book. It corresponds by chapter, summarizing the main ideas and providing short answer questions for students to answer as they read through The Ocean Book. Each chapter of the study guide also includes discussion questions, vocabulary, activities, and projects to complete for better understanding of the concepts. These activities may include memorization of scripture, labeling maps, or reading weather maps. The study guide is a supplement to the text and is very helpful as you strive to comprehend and retain the facts presented. Guide is 72 pages, paperback, includes answers, and is not reproducible. - Melissa/Donna

    Tired of exposing your children to evolutionary "facts" while studying the countries of our world? Well, no more! Master Books, in partnership with My Father's World, provides this quality resource designed to enhance our study of the world from a Christian perspective.

    Each of the seven continents is represented with highlights of more well-know nations. Information typically found in a quality atlas is included like landmarks, rivers, countries/capitals, flags, peoples, distinctive animals, biomes and the physical characteristic of the land. Unique to this atlas is the information on Christian history, people of faith and Christian traditions around the globe. For example, in the section on Saudia Arabia we read, "One of the first church buildings ever constructed has been found here by archaeologists. Built around the 4th century, it has come to be called the Jubail Church. Many congregations of Christians once thrived here until they were killed or driven out by the growth of Islam at the end of the first millennium…" The other distinctive feature you will appreciate is the lack of evolutionary timeline dating. Additional resources found in the back of the book include a glossary, definitions of government systems, holidays around the world, and detailed index. Vividly illustrated with photographs and full color maps, children will be eager to learn more about God's world. Oversized HC. 96 ps. ~Deanne

    Instilling a love for science in my children was always a primary goal in our early days of home-schooling. One of my secret tools was always keeping a stack of interesting science reference books available for them to thumb through or to look up a quick question on their own (yes, this was pre-internet!), but I always struggled to find good quality books that did not overwhelm us with evolutionary content and would often lament to my husband, that it would sure be nice to have a Christian alternative to the informative Usborne or DK resource books. I am so excited to share that Master Books and My Father's World have heard the cries of many homeschool families and have joined together to provide quality science reference books that offer beautiful photographs and illustrations without the inundation of evolutionary teaching.

    Beginning with Genesis 1:1, this book introduces the scientific method, real science, fields of science and the reasons to study science and then dives into seven sections covering a wide range of scientific subjects. Section 1: Matters and Chemicals covers atoms, elements, molecules, solids, liquids, gases, melting and boiling, crystals, water, chemical changes, acids and bases and composites. Section 2: Energy, Motion and Machines presents energy, converting energy, the energy of motion, forces and motion, measuring force and motion, gravity, heat and cold, helpful machines, simple machines, machine power, friction and energy and matter. Section 3: Electricity and Magnetism contains electrical energy, static electricity, flowing electricity, electrical circuits, using electricity, magnetism, and magnetism to electricity, electricity to movement, movement to electricity plus more. Section 4: Light and Sound introduces sound waves, using sound, light, reflected and refracted light, using light, laser light and more. Section 5: Earth and Life presents planet earth, inside the earth, the rock cycle, volcanoes and earthquakes, atmosphere, weather and climate, mountains and valleys, rivers and lakes, coastlines, seas and oceans, life on earth and the earth in trouble. Section 6: Space and Time explores earth in space, exploring space, earth's orbit, magnetic earth, inner planets, solar wanderers, outer planets, the sun, stars and galaxies, deep space, and the universe.

    The last section provides over sixty projects covering topics in each of the previous six categories. Science projects contain a concise "you will need" list, clear step by step instructions, and colorful accompanying photographs. Each project also contains the reference page for further information and utilizes commonly found items. Glossary and index provide helpful reference material. hc. 247 pgs. ~ Deanne

    An all around guide to creation science, I was impressed with the wide variety of subjects the book touches on. Using a fairly common question to start off each chapter, it then delves into various subjects for detailed answers. For example, the book starts off with the question, "Is There Really a God?" It then talks about how order is always taken as a sign of a creator and how information can't really rise from non information. The questions range from such creation-related topics as the doom of dinosaurs, gap & ruin reconstruction theory, distant starlight, why Christians shouldn't accept billions of years, and hybrid theories. The questions are approached scientifically, biblically, and logically. Clear, relatively concise answers mean that this book is kind of a crash course in Intelligent Design. While there are books that deal specifically with fossils, or specifically with hybrid creation/evolution theories, this is an excellent book to get you in the loop with creation science. Written by Ken Ham and various creation scientists, it is 378 pgs, softcover. A revised and updated edition of the Answers Book. ~ Mark

    "In the beginning God created…" not your typical opening sentence for an encyclopedic style reference book! Master Books and My Father's World have teamed up to provide homeschool families an alternative to the popular Usborne and DK encyclopedia books. This refreshing book provides fascinating details, beautiful illustrations and full color photographs, all from an evolution-free perspective! The introduction provides an overview of zoology, a synopsis of the flood, and God's design for animal life.

    Seven chapters examine the animal kingdom from single-celled organisms to mammals. Section One looks at single cell life forms, protists, moss animals, sponges, jelly fish, hydroids, sea anemones, coral and coral reefs. Section Two focuses on worms, snails, starfish, mollusks, and echinoderms. In Section Three, readers will explore the world of bugs, including beetles, weevils, butterflies, bees, wasps ants, flies, crickets, grasshoppers, and even fleas and lice! Other animals included are crabs, lobster, shrimp, crustaceans, spiders, scorpions, centipedes and millipedes. Section Four covers fish. Although fish are easy to identify, not all fish must live in the water. In this section, we learn the common characteristics of fish, and the exceptional characteristics of some, which allow them to break the rules. Amphibians and reptiles are featured in Section Five. Readers will "meet" newts, salamanders, frogs and toads as well as a few of my family's favorite animals: tortoises, turtles, terrapins, sea turtles, crocodiles and alligators, iguanas and chameleons, geckos, lizards, skinks, pythons, boas, and thread snakes, grass snakes, water snakes, garter snakes and a variety of venomous snakes. Birds are next. Did you know that penguins successfully navigate life in the sea by using their short stubby wings for swimming? This segment also introduces us to seabirds, shorebirds, herons, ducks, geese, birds of prey, game birds, pigeons, doves and parrots, cuckoos, owls, woodpeckers, crows, shrikes, sparrows, finches and weavers, warblers, thrushes, flycatchers, larks, swallows, treecreepers, plus many others. The seventh section examines mammals including whales, dolphins porpoises, egg-laying mammals, marsupials, bats, anteaters, sloths, armadillos, rabbits, aardvarks, hyraxes, mice, rats, squirrels, deer, camel, antelopes, sheep, horses, zebras, cats, dogs, bears, raccoons, pandas, mongooses, lemurs, monkeys and numerous others.

    This reference book would be a valuable asset to the Christian homeschool family bookshelf. These books will most definitely end up on my family's reference shelf and I am grateful we can offer this quality science reference book without the deluge of evolutionary teaching. ~ Deanne

    In this third book in the "Wonders of Creation" series, Dr. Morris explains the structure of the earth we live on and presents evidence and theories of rock and landform formation from a young-earth viewpoint. He includes interesting findings from Mt. St. Helens and other recent catastrophic events, discusses various methods of dating the earth, and presents possible scenarios for Creation and the Flood that fit with a literal interpretation of the Biblical account. The well illustrated and easy to read pages make this a good introduction for the younger student or for anyone who has not been exposed to an alternative to the "millions of years" of most geology texts. Grades 5 and up. ~ Reprinted from Christian Home Educators Curriculum Manuals with permission of Cathy Duffy, Grove Publishing.

    The corresponding study guide would be a good tool for small group study and homeschool. Each chapter includes corresponding pages from the book, scripture passages, and questions to answer. There is also a list of vocabulary words to define and suggested activities for each chapter. You can start your own rock collection, make a fossil, and study erosion. This 44-page study guide is not reproducible. An answer key is included. 5" x 8", softcover. ~ Donna

    If you attend church on Sundays, chances are you don't believe in evolution but that God created the world in six literal days. However, if someone asked you what the Bible has to say about eugenics and the existence of God, or how human and chimp DNA could be so similar, would you have biblical answers? Ken Ham has compiled the work of such men as Dr. John Morris and Bodie Hodge into chapters that address issues ranging from evolution and what Noah's Ark must have looked like to the possibility of life coming from space, all from a strictly biblical perspective. Dr. Jason Lisle wrote a chapter in the book entitled "Is the Christian Worldview Logical?" and addresses the misconception of faith and the laws of logic, demonstrating how Christian presuppositions are true and secular presuppositions have circular reasoning. Each chapter is broken into short sections with illustrations and pictures spread throughout, making the information easy to absorb. All the information presented is reinforced by factual claims from a wide range of sources. This book will make for exciting reading that will not only educate but influence your thinking for years to come, and give you confidence when an evolutionist asks you one day, "How could the biblical account be true since the Grand Canyon must have been formed over millions of years?" 381 pgs, pb. – John

    The New Answers Book has been very popular for Christians who want to find quick, detailed, scientifically and biblically accurate answers to common questions about Creationism and Intelligent Design. This second book follows in its steps, answering 30 more questions dealing with Creation/Evolution and the Bible. These questions seem a bit more complex and culturally focused than those in the first book. Using Genesis and science as a basis, the book answers questions ranging from the origin of evil, if evolution fits with the Bible, how a Christian should respond to gay marriage, and if Creationists can believe in physics like relativity, quantum mechanics, and string theory. The book does a good job of showing how the "evolutionizing" of our culture is not just affecting science – it's affecting most aspects of our society. With 30 common questions answered in a concise, intelligent way by various experts in the Creationism field, this book covers an impressive variety of subjects linked to evolution. Edited by Ken Ham, 374 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Part of Master Books' Wonders of Creation series, this book is more historical in nature than the other titles, which focus more on science. For the first time ever in this series, they have written a book with information tailored to three age groups: 5th-6th grade, 7th-8th grade, and 9th-11th grades. Text geared for each age group is printed on a differently-colored background, with the most basic information (who, what, where, why and how) written to younger readers, and the most complex information (theories, controversies) geared for older readers. Eleven chapters discuss what archaeology is, and then look at archaeology investigations at a number of different ancient Middle Eastern sites, including Egypt, the land of the Hittites, Ur of the Chaldees, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Petra, the land of the Phoenicians, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and Israel. An overview of the history of locations or cultures is provided in each chapter, along with exciting details on recent discoveries and narratives from the Bible that correlate with the history of a place or related ruler. Maps, full-color photos and notes from the author add further interest. Although the differently-colored blocks of text aren't too hard to get used to as an older reader, younger readers that have an interest in archaeology may browse other sections, and will certainly be interested in perusing the full-color photographs of sites and artifacts. A separate 36-page study guide includes vocabulary, short answer questions, and hands-on activities for each chapter. This is available as a free download at www.masterbooks.net. A wonderful supplement to any study of ancient history, and a great resource for Christian students interested in the field of archaeology. 96 pgs, hc. – Jess

     The Student Book (textbook) is the instruction, divided into chapters, then into lessons. Important notes about the curriculum and its use are found in the front of the book. Students will read the lesson in the Student Book and complete the activity page found in the Teacher Guide (sold separately or as part of the Book 2 Set). That’s how easy it is to use this curriculum. Don’t confuse easy-to-use with over-simplified content. After comparing the content of this course with that of Bob Jones, Saxon, Alpha Omega etc., Principles of Mathematics stays with the pack. It covers all pertinent topics for algebra preparation. While there is quite a bit of reading, the language is fairly easy to read and comprehend (conversational). The text is black and white with examples and illustrations, so may not appeal to your more visual learner. Lessons that have recommended calculator use are marked with a calculator symbol. 

    Book 2 is considered the pre-algebra portion of the program, so students need to be competent in basic functions of fractions, decimals, percent, and basic geometry. Book 2 assumes the knowledge of content presented in Book 1; so if you aren’t sure where to begin, have your student take the placement tests available on our website.
