This book is an approachable and readable explanation of the basics of biology for high school or undergraduate students. But Gordon Wilson doesn't dumb down the concepts: he gives students handles to grasp the wonders of life on all levels.

Details

In "Part 1: The Living Cell," you will be introduced to:

  • The basics of cellular and molecular biology, including the "motors" of flagella and other awe-inspiring nano-machines
  • The "how and why" of photosynthesis, cellular respiration, the central dogma, mitosis, meiosis, recombinant DNA technology, and Mendelian genetics, and more...

In "Part 2: The Diversity of Life," you will be taken on a fascinating tour of:

  • The major phyla and classes of all of the six taxonomic kingdoms
  • Important concepts in the creation/evolution debate
  • An exciting survey of God's living handiwork, including the tiny, deadly Trypanosoma, fungus firearms, sedentary sponges, bizarre echinoderms and unfamiliar facts about the lifecycles and habits of familar vertebrates and plants
  • The basics of ecology, such as symbiotic relationships, food webs, and the interdependency of life
  • A biblical approach to conservation, and much more...

Rather than teaching a pile of disconnected facts about biology, Gordon Wilson gives the reader a foundational knowledge of living things alongside his primary goal, which is to stir up a long-lasting wonder and curiosity about life and a greater desire to praise the Creator.
