Dr. Don DeYoung Publishes Hands-On Educational Book for Children
An esteemed Grace College professor has released a new children’s book. Dr. Don DeYoung, chair of the science and mathematics department and professor of physics at Grace College, held a book signing on Tuesday, December 10 for “77 Fairly Safe Science Activities for Illustrating Bible Lessons.” The book, published in September 2013, contains hands-on science activities and fun-filled demonstrations for revealing truths about God and creation. The experiments use common household objects, require little setup, and are illustrated with diagrams.
DeYoung is the author of several more books on science and the Bible, several of which feature a question-answer format with concise discussion of popular issues. He also conducts workshops for children with hands-on Bible-science activities and often speaks on creation, detailing how the intricacies of nature are a powerful testimony to the Creator’s care for mankind.
He is the current president of the Creation Research Society, a worldwide group of scientists who promote biblical creation, fund research, and publish books and a technical quarterly journal. In addition, DeYoung writes and speaks for Answers in Genesis, a widely-known apologetics ministry supporting young earth creation.
“My purpose in writing is to interest all ages, from 5 to 95, in the study of the Bible and science,” explained DeYoung. “Many people are intimidated by secular trends of science including big bang and evolution theories. However, a close look at nature shows clear harmony between the present-day creation and God’s Word. I believe that people of faith have the best reason to enjoy nature because we know who made all things.”
The book can be purchased on Amazon. For more information, visit discoveryofdesign.com.
