Third Book Review

The final book that I reviewed this month from  from Master Books, a division of New Leaf Publishing Group, was:

Here is the book trailer from the website:

This book was written by Ray Comfort and Jeffrey Seto.

Inside the covers of this book are 32 inventions that have their foundation in natural design. It looks at these things and shows how studying nature has allowed for incredible advances in technology. When you are able to look at nature up close it is impossible to not see a Creator behind it all. . .the spider web that is stonger than Kevlar, moth's eyes that inspire solar cell, cat's eyes and their ability to reflect light.

I loved being able to share this book with my kids as part of our school curriculum  It does a great job explaining technological advances and well as how things work in nature. What a joy to have such a colorful and well done book to add to our library!

Second Book Review

The second book I had the opportunity to review from Master Books, a division of New Leaf Publishing Group, was:

Here is the book trailer from the website:

This book was edited by Don Landis, the president of Jackson Hole Bible College in Jackson, Wyoming. It was contributed to by  students at Jackson Hole Bible College.

I cannot say enough about this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it! It was the prefect mix of facts and illustration. The book deals with the problem that evolutionists have with the relics we have of our past that indicate that ancient man had to have an understanding of science, math and astronomy. There is so much evidence in this world that man was not a creature that slowly evolved into a being with  the ability to reason.

Starting with an introduction in apologetics and concluding with a list of their axioms, a fact that ought to be widely held and understood as truth, this book covers a range of topics about ancient man. It discusses how the long lives of pre-flood man would have allowed for hundreds of years of collaboration and an ability to perfect an idea. It shows how the Biblical story of Babel would allow for an explanation of similarities between cultures around the globe. Some of these similarities include building style, music, legends and a focus on astronomy.

Although we may never know the truth behind ancient man, this book presents a great starting point to learn more about our past.

Unique Opportunity. . .

I recently had the unique opportunity to review three new books from Master Books, a division of New Leaf Publishing Group.

The first book I opened up was:

Here is a link to the book trailer from the  NLPG website.

This book is written by Ken Ham president/CEO and founder of Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum, which we got to visit last summer. 

We are in our second year of homeschooling and one of the things that I love is that I have the opportunity to present the truth about our world to my children. This book does an amazing job of presenting the story of Adam and Eve in a way that is easy for my children (as well as myself) to understand! The illustrations captured their attention and the text allowed for clear understanding. 

The book is thoroughly based on Scripture and starts at the beginning with the creation account. It discusses the purpose of man and what life would have been like in the garden. It introduces the concept of sin and the consequences that followed and have left an impact on our world today.

 What I love about this book is that it allows be to answer the questions about Adam and Eve with confidence and I loved sharing it with  my kids.
