Item Description...
Overview
From the engineering marvel of the human foot to the eye's 10 billion calculations per second, Gillen's exploration of basic anatomy and physiology consistently testifies that we are fearfully and wonderfully made! This ideal high school text offers clear explanations, examples, diagrams, and illustrations of the human body. Questions challenge your students to think further about each chapter's presentation.

Publishers Description
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.

Marvelous Interweaving  Jan 14, 2002
Could we -- Homo sapiens -- have just happened through a series of evolutionary changes over thousands of years? Careful examination of the human body reveals that macroevolution of Homo sapiens is not possible. The more intricately one explores human anatomy and physiology, the more obvious creation by a Master Creator becomes. The more scientific research discovers about the functioning of the human body, the more obvious a planned, "intelligent design" by God becomes.

High school and college anatomy and physiology textbooks usually present an evolutionist view without presenting accurate, truthful explanations of what is known and what is theory. Even in clinically-oriented texts that used to be "neutral," such as human anatomy, physiology, and microbiology, we now see Darwinian philosophy and medicine interwoven throughout. Logical reasoning and statistical explanations for these "new" developments of human structure, function, and disease are not discussed. References from other scientists that mention God are not accurately quoted, or worse, not acknowledged at all.

Body by Design presents human anatomy and physiology clearly, accurately and truthfully. Purposeful, intricate design of structure and function are discussed. The evidence for logical, deliberate design by God is interwoven into a detailed explanation of the human body systems. Body system relationships to one another are explored. 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 defines the basic anatomy and physiology in each of the eleven body systems, as do many texts. However, the unique contribution of this book is the evidence it provides for design in each of these systems through description of their basic biology. Body by Design also contains biographical information about famous biologists, like Vesalius, Harvey, Starling, Pasteur, Lister, and Cuvier revealing that a design view of the body is not new. Instead, this is a common view held through the ages. Only in recent times have biologists been so antagonistic towards the idea of a Creator being responsible for the origin of mankind. Additionally, the book compares and contrasts the viewpoints of creation/design with macroevolution on specific human traits.

Tables assist the reader with understanding relationships between design and purpose. Figures provide details of key anatomical structures and physiologic principles. Clear examples are used to explain relationships between structure, function and intelligent design. Focus boxes stimulate thinking and provide practical application of the information presented. "Check Your Understanding" questions, at the conclusion of each chapter, go beyond rote memory to stimulate process thinking and reasoning.

Body by Design achieves a marvelous interweaving of anatomy, physiology, and creation. Only high school and college students who are willing to explore the intricacies of human anatomy and physiology in a logical, thought provoking manner should venture into this textbook.

Excellent Book  Jul 20, 2001
This is an amazing mix of creation science and intelligent design. I highly reccomend it not only for a textbook but for a top resource in anybody's library. Gillen does a great job of pointing out that creationists embrace science and have no problem with natural selection, mutations, antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and much more. This book is a great resource for refuting evolutionary thinking with science.
