Devotional Biology: Learning to Worship the Creator of Organisms is an amazing opportunity to learn high school biology from one of the top creation scientists in the world.

Dr. Kurt Wise designed this unique class to fully integrate a Christian worldview with the biological sciences. The result is a completely new way to approach biology. He has taught this class for over a decade to high school and college students, and is now making it available for the first time in video format.* The class includes:

  • 71 in-depth video lectures* 
  • Textbook (PDF) 
  • Lab manual (PDF)**
  • 15 Lab Instructional Videos**

Click on "Samples" tab to watch a full lecture and read the accompanying material in the textbook.

One of the many interesting things about the class is how Dr. Wise starts with our understanding of who God is, then shows how God has created the living world to reflect His unique attributes in His creation. He explains a fascinating array of subjects from a creationist perspective, including the nature of life, Biblical kinds, biosystems, biodiversity, cell theory, the history of life, and much, much more. (Click on Lessons tab for full list.)

This class is good for one full credit for a high school lab science.

*Only available now as streaming and MP4 download; DVD will available for this product June 2018.

Bio: 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.

  1. Joyce

    I am enjoying the biology class so much. I have always liked to learn about the human body, but never enjoyed the rest of biology so much. I love this emphasis on God's involvement in our world through His miracle of creation and His sustaining of everything. His worldview is so much more interesting than the secular worldview. I am through about a third of the lectures so far, and I love thinking about how well He has organized everything, and how beautiful He originally made it all. There is even a lot of beauty still left in the world 6000 years after it was partially destroyed by sin and continues to be destroyed by sin. How wonderful heaven will be without sin! How beautiful it must be!

  2. Alice

    Finally, a biology curriculum that teaches students to look first at the aspects of the Creator of life in order to better understand the organisms He has created.
    Dr. Wise presents the lessons clearly and in in depth, with material that shows how actual science supports the Biblical creation account. Students are also encouraged to see themselves as stewards of this creation.
    The corresponding lab manual gives students hands-on experience and eyes-on witness to the wonderfully complex intentional creation our Lord has provided to us.

    exactly what I've been wanting for my kids. Showing that God, who is the creator, wants to be with us. And He shows His attributes through creation/science. Nothing is unconnected to our God.

    I purchased this even though my kids are not in HS. We're watching it as a family and will enjoy this again and again...

  4. Mike

    Dr. Wise , again, explains technical information in a way that clarifies and shows the amazing design features God has put into His creation. This is exciting in that it gives evidence to combat evolution, and to strengthen our faith.
