Body by Design defines the basic anatomy and physiology in each of 11 body systems from a creational viewpoint. Every chapter explorers the wonder, beauty, and creation of the human body, giving evidence for creation, while exposing faulty evolutionistic reasoning. Special explorations into each body system look closely at disease aspects, current events, and discoveries, while profiling the classic and contemporary scientists and physicians who have made remarkable breakthrough in studies of the different areas of the human body. Body by Design is an ideal textbook for Christians high school or college students as it utilizes tables, graphs, focus sections, diagrams, and illustrations to provide clear examples and explanations of the ideas presented. Questions at the end of each chapter challenge the student to think through the evidence presented.--Back cover.
