These texts are excellent vehicles to achieve the goal of this course: learning about the living being in the context of the larger whole. Wile’s book gives the standard biological information from a Christian viewpoint, and Behe’s book places the consideration in a larger whole. The student is encouraged to see the plan and design in nature. This prepares him to do the fifth way of St. Thomas. Humani Generis provides an opportunity for the student to learn about the teaching of the Church on the origin of life. It also helps him be aware that the Church teaches on such matters.
Exploring Creation with Biology is a college-prep biology course that provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general biology. With a strong emphasis on the vocabulary of biology, the course provides the student with a strong background in the scientific method, the five-kingdom classification scheme, microscopy, biochemistry, cellular biology, molecular and Mendelian genetics, evolution, dissection, and ecosystems. Please note that this course does not contain a discussion of human anatomy and physiology. (Most college biology professors do not consider human anatomy and physiology to be a part of a solid, college-prep biology course.) Anatomy is such a detailed subject that it merits an entire course. The second edition of the includes more color and higher-quality illustrations, access to additional online resources for more advanced learners, and an appendix of review questions covering the entire course. The high-quality hardcover student text contains all student material, study questions, laboratory exercises, and module study guides with color photos and illustrations.
This softcover solutions-and-tests manual contains answers to module study guides, tests, and test solutions. A booklet containing an extra set of tests is shrink-wrapped with the manual.
