Not Just Science

Author:
Publisher: Zondervan
ISBN: 9780310863304
Release Date: 2009-08-30
Genre: Religion

This book argues that it is possible for our study of the natural world to enhance our understanding of God and for our faith to inform and influence our study and application of science. Whether you are a student, someone employed in the sciences, or simply an interested layperson, Not Just Science will help you develop the crucial skills of critical thinking and reflection about key questions in Christian faith and natural science.The contributors provide a systematic approach to both raising and answering the key questions that emerge at the intersection of faith and various disciplines in the natural sciences. Among the questions addressed are the context, limits, benefits, and practice of science in light of Christian values. Questions of ethics as they relate to various applied sciences are also discussed. The end goal is an informed biblical worldview on both nature and our role in obeying God’s mandate to care for his creation.With an honest approach to critical questions, Not Just Science fills a gap in the discussion about the relationship between faith and reason. This is a most welcomed addition to these significant scholarly conversations. Ron Mahurin, PhD Vice President, Professional Development and Research Council for Christian Colleges & Universities

ISBN: 9781317563747
Release Date: 2017-08-07
Genre: Science

As the amount of information in biology expands dramatically, it becomes increasingly important for textbooks to distill the vast amount of scientific knowledge into concise principles and enduring concepts.As with previous editions, Molecular Biology of the Cell, Sixth Edition accomplishes this goal with clear writing and beautiful illustrations. The Sixth Edition has been extensively revised and updated with the latest research in the field of cell biology, and it provides an exceptional framework for teaching and learning. The entire illustration program has been greatly enhanced.Protein structures better illustrate structure–function relationships, icons are simpler and more consistent within and between chapters, and micrographs have been refreshed and updated with newer, clearer, or better images. As a new feature, each chapter now contains intriguing openended questions highlighting “What We Don’t Know,” introducing students to challenging areas of future research. Updated end-of-chapter problems reflect new research discussed in the text, and these problems have been expanded to all chapters by adding questions on developmental biology, tissues and stem cells, pathogens, and the immune system.

Offering comprehensive coverage in a hip little package, In Conversation: A Writer's Guidebook is a pocket-sized guidebook designed for the Instagram generation. Composition scholar Mike Palmquist of Colorado State University and professional writer and editor Barbara Wallraff, formerly of The Atlantic, develop the approachable metaphor of writing as a conversation for an unintimidating entry point into college-level writing and thinking. As its subtitle suggests, In Conversation blends the helpful support of a writing guide with the easy-to-use reference framework of a handbook. Rather than presenting writing as a set of rigid rules to be mastered, the authors share writerly advice and help students understand the effects of their rhetorical choices. Fresh example sentences in the grammar, punctuation, and style sections illustrate creative revisions, and thorough documentation chapters on MLA, APA, Chicago, and CSE provide dozens of citation models across disciplines. Distinguished by spectacular visuals, natural, friendly explanations, and an emphasis on real-world genres, this guidebook invites your students to be a part of the conversation.
