As a Young-Earth Creation Science believing family, we love finding new resources for teaching our children these truths. I think it is so important to teach science from a Christian worldview, because contrary to secular teachings, Christianity and science are not in contradiction to each other.
“Science was born in Christianity … because only in a Christian worldview can we believe the things about the universe that make science make sense.” – Dr. Wise
The Devotional Biology Homeschool Class is a video course for high school students that teaches biology from a creation worldview. Once again, I am blown away by the content produced by Compass Classroom and I am excited to introduce this curriculum to you!
Devotional Biology Homeschool Class
We received the Devotional Biology Video Curriculum from Compass Classroom for reviewing purposes and all opinions are my own. Because of the length of this course, I have not yet completed the course at the time of this article. I have based my thoughts off of the initial several video lectures and texts I have completed.
This is an in-depth biology science course. It is an excellent option for a high school biology science class and also for adults interested in science or Christians interested in Creation Science.
While this is a very thorough science course, it is more than that. It is a way to see God through His creation.
I am not downplaying the fact that this is a very high-quality and thorough biology course, but I want to focus on the fact that this course is a solid ‘argument’ in favor of Christian-based science.
In most secular biology programs, you start with the tiny organisms and continue from there with an evolutionary view of life. In this course, we start with the Creator of the organisms.
We are made to know God (the source of life) while learning all about biology! It is firmly rooted in Scripture, God’s Word is woven all throughout the course, and this is very much a course for Christians.
However, it was developed and is taught by a man who has this resume:
“Dr. Wise earned his BA in geology from the University of Chicago, and his MA and PhD degrees in paleontology from Harvard University. He founded and directed the Center for Origins Research at Bryan College and taught biology there for 17 years. He then led the Center for Theology and Science at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary for 3 years, before founding and directing the Center for Creation Research and teaching biology at Truett McConnell University for the last 7 years. His fieldwork has included research in early Flood rocks in the Death Valley region, late Flood rocks in Wyoming, and post-Flood caves in Tennessee.” – [source]
He was taught science from a secular worldview but as a Christian, he went on to teach biology based on biblical truths. I love how God uses all things (like secular teachings & research) for our good and His glory!
Through this amazing science biology course, we learn that life does have a purpose. And that purpose is reaffirmed over and over again throughout this course.
I am super impressed with Dr. Wise and his Devotional Biology Video Course. I am enjoying working through this course myself and will be using this as a resource in our homeschool for my children (my oldest has already been watching the videos with me).
