Join in the glorious uproar of creation with The Riot and the Dance Adventure Book, adapted from the boisterous new nature documentary by bestselling children's author N.D. Wilson.

Look Inside the Book

Now you can follow along with Dr. Gordon Wilson as he traverses our planet, basking in God's masterpieces whether he's catching wildlife in mountain ponds or in the jungles of Sri Lanka. (Yeah, he did get bitten, but not by the cobra.) Beautiful photos and powerful narration will open your eyes to the extraordinary glory found all over the animal kingdom, starting with your own back yard. As a student, Gordon Wilson was told he'd never be a "real" biologist unless he stopped blabbing about all that Creator-creature nonsense. Now, Gordon is the Senior Fellow of Natural History at New Saint Andrews College and the author of The Riot and the Dance, a textbook for high school and undergraduate biology students. Gordon Wilson received his Ph.D. in Environmental Science and Public Policy from George Mason University in 2003.

What people are saying:

"The stunning cinematography and explanations of God's design will leave you giving our awesome Creator the praise he deserves." -Ken Ham, Answers in Genesis Founder and President

"My wife and I loved it." ~John Piper, author and founder of DesiringGod.org

"The beauty of nature has much to tell us about its true Author." -Scott A. Minnich, PhD Professor of Microbiology

"Dr. Wilson's narration brings to life the poetry and lyricism of nature." -Paul Garner, Fellow of the Geological Society of London

"A vividly powerful experience." -Denyse O'Leary, author, journalist, blogger

"The Riot and the Dance not only a feast for the eyes, it's also a hearty meal for the soul." -Marcus R. Ross, PhD Professor of Geology

"God's glory and character is certainly seen in His 'Wild Kingdom' all around us, if we dare to look." -Joseph Francis PhD, Dean, School of Science, Math, Technology and Health

God's Greatness and Beauty in a Fallen World

Great little companion to the nature movie and coming TV shows. "Dr. G" reminds us of God speaking in and through His creation even in its fallenness and how He reveals beauty amidst ugliness. This little book is good up show my grands God's glory through His creation. Beautiful
