    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

    Can you name the bird after which some bullet trains are designed or what an Osage Orange Tree and barbed wire have in common? Biomimicry is a process through which we discover and utilize designs from nature; useful features that benefit living things and also can be employed for the welfare of mankind. This book looks at design examples from 8 different categories of nature: microorganisms, insects, flight (bats, birds, flying reptiles), underwater life, land animals, people, vegetation, and nonliving objects like the Opal, nanoparticles, and water flow. The chapter on vegetation even includes a chart of medical benefits we receive from certain plants and animals. Each two-page spread tells about the example, what we have learned, and its application. Each passage is followed by questions for further study and either internet search words or references. Answers to the questions and a glossary are found at the back of the book.

    FYI: The front of some bullet trains is designed to look like the bill of a kingfisher to cut down on noise. The kingfisher is able to dive into water without much splash despite the change in pressure. This is similar to the change in air pressure experienced when a bullet train exits a tunnel, and the shape decreases sound that would normally be caused by the change in air pressure. Scientists are studying nature everyday in order to benefit mankind and this book looks at those discoveries through the lens of a Christian worldview. ~ Donna

    Can you be a scientist and a man of God? Of course! Read about important scientists throughout history who found no conflict, men who made important contributions to science as Bible-believing Christians. Men like Francis Bacon, Copernicus, Michael Faraday, Samuel F. B. Morse, Louis Pasteur, and Galileo (who was excommunicated and imprisoned by the Catholic church for his scientific theory that the sun, not the earth, is the center of our solar system and, just recently, has been exonerated by the Pope, 350 years later). Brief but interesting biographical sketches provide stimulating reading to accompany any science program!

    The scientific "war of the worldviews" began as a battle over biology. In the 1600 and 1700s the foundation of biology was laid primarily by Christians who freely used the Bible as the basis of their understanding. But all of this changed in 1859, when Charles Darwin's popular new book, Origin of Species was published. Over the past one hundred and fifty years, his evolutionary worldview has overwhelmingly become the accepted paradigm for the origins of life.

    This supplemental resource from Master Books has been written to give young people answers - from Science and from Scripture, ANSWERS that show how Science and the Bible fit together to honor the Creator. Divided into three units, a total of nineteen chapters, it teaches students science from a Biblical perspective and helps them to defend their faith. Each chapter also provides a "Building Inspection" review which includes multiple choice, fill in the blank and short answer questions. Unit One investigates biological change (Darwin vs. Design) and looks at such topics as genes and Genesis, gene pools and variation within kind, species, "change through time" vs. Darwinian change, natural selection, evolution, mutations, and much more. Unit Two covers topics such as descent vs. design, classification and missing links, life before birth, and creation, evolution and the embryo. Unit Three examines DNA and origins including biological molecules, living cells, chemical evolution, evidence of creation, DNA and reproduction, and many other topics. Black & white illustrations, answer key included. 158pgs, pb. ~ Deanne

    Learn about Earth Science from a Biblical worldview. Use this 160-page book as a resource or pair it up with your science curriculum to add more dimension to the history and methods of discovery and invention. Dr. Gary Parker will take you from Newton’s discovery of gravity to the formation of the Grand Canyon using as your guide the Bible as the ultimate “history book of the world”.

    Not just an information book, this will challenge you to think about your view of creation through questions called Building Inspection. After reading each chapter (which uses science to support the Scriptures), content is reviewed using these questions to help solidify a Biblical outline of Earth’s history. Earth structure, atmosphere, minerals, rocks, water table, and types of volcanoes are just a few of the topics covered. Full of black and white illustrations and photos on almost every page, this book offers visuals to enhance understanding. Important facts and vocabulary are in bold throughout the reading and answers to the questions are found in the back of the book. ~ Donna

    Like the other texts in this series, the Earth Science employs a mastery approach to learning science students should learn, master, and retain, what they learn. A curriculum that uses this approach covers fewer topics but covers each more deeply. This text also integrates learning by combining skills in the areas of science, math, science history, and English language usage. Every chapter follows the same format objectives are stated, vocabulary terms presented, textual information numbered and divided into digestible amounts, learning checks' at the end of each reading section, and an exercise at the end of each chapter. Chapters in this book cover Earth in Space, Visualizing Earth, Thinking About Earth, Matter & Minerals, Rocks & the Rock Cycle, Plate Tectonics & Mountain Building, Volcanoes & Earthquakes, Weathering/Erosion/Soils, Surface Water & Groundwater, Landforms, Earth History, Oceanography, Atmosphere, Weather, and Climate & Air Pollution. A glossary, mineral chart, and other resources are found at the back of the text. The author believes in questions that require complete sentences as a response, so you won't find any true/false, matching, or multiple choice questions. Colorful illustrations and photos are used to enhance the content of this small format text (6.5" x 9.5").

    The text states three goals for which the student is to strive be good stewards of God's gifts; learn, master, and retain what you learn; learn to keep a lab journal. The student section at the front of the book explains how to keep your lab journal or you can use Student Lab Report Handbook (#47300) for guidelines suggested by this author for keeping a lab journal. This handbook is recommended for use at the high school level. There are eight Experimental Investigations found right in the text and include an overview, basic materials list and step-by-step instructions.

    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
