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.

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