- About the author
Earth Science: God's World, Our Home is designed to draw middle-school students into close engagement with the subject matter and provide a solid education while fostering a sense of wonder and responsibility for God’s amazing world. Within the context of the fascinating study of landforms, minerals, and planetary phenomena, many other timely and important topics are covered including conservation of natural resources, climate change, pollution, and environmental justice, as well as the current scientific consensus concerning geologic history.
Earth Science should be about much more than learning about rocks and mountains and the seasons. Think about God’s exciting mandate to steward and exhibit vice regency over creation! Author Kevin Nelstead regularly draws the reader to appreciate the intricacy and excellence of God’s works.
