Body By Design
by Alan L. Gillen
Body by Design: The Anatomy and Physiology of the Human Body defines the basic anatomy and physiology in each of the 11 body systems from a creational viewpoint. Every chapter examines different organs and structures giving evidence for theistic design. Focus sections that highlight the interwoven complexity between the body systems are also included. Students are challenged to think through the evidence-the facts as we know them today-and to consider the statistical likelihood of macroevolution. The end result is an effective, interwoven presentation of anatomy, physiology, and creation.
Body by Design is an ideal textbook for Christian high school or college students as it utilizes tables, graphs, focus sections, diagrams, and illustrations to provide clear examples and explanantions of the ideas presented. Questions at the end of each chapter challenge the student to think through the evidence presented. (159 pages)
