Excellent accompaniment to College Prep text!

Would you listen to Exploring Creation with Biology again? Why?

This is the third student in my family to use this audio book. For a Sophomore in High School on a College Prep track, this resource helped extend the learning beyond simply "reading a text book". It encourages critical logical thinking from a Biblical Worldview, of which there are few resources that fit this description.

What did you like best about this story?

The unapologetic Biblical Worldview is my favorite aspect of this audio book.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The entire text encourages critical thinking, not simply requiring the student to regurgitate the publishers/authors point of view.

Any additional comments?

Keep digging into science in all it's aspects. God is not afraid of our questions or disagreements that are always certainly raised during scientific study...the fact is that if we are seeking Him, we will find Him. Period. :)
I'd buy this again without hesitation! :)

Good but slow

The reading of the book is quite slow but this can be fixed by abutting the speed.

Great introduction to the world of biology

If you could sum up Exploring Creation with Biology in three words, what would they be?

God's amazing world!

Any additional comments?

At age 51 I am learning about Biology for the first time. This course is an amazing and thorough introduction that takes a scientific approach to the subject. It debunks foolish notions about "Bio-genesis" and shows clearly that the world of biology had to be created by the creator God. The deeper you go into cell structure and the functions of biology the more amazing things get. This book is a sensible scientific approach to biology.

Creation rubbish

Extremely dry and boring. God created everything , who created god? The biology is matter of fact and souless in this production. For me a waste of money. Very childish and the chapter on evolution is laughable.

HARDCORE BRAINWASHING

The main objective of this book is to brainwash Christian beliefs. Everything else is secondary.

It lacks objectivity. It is highly opinionated.

Wasteful. I was looking forward to factual, objective text about biology (something lacking on Audible) from a non-evolutionary perspective. Disappointing.
