Novare Science and Math — Upcoming Biology Textbook

NovareGeneralBiologyHere’s some good news for Christian science teachers, whether in a Christian school or home school setting. In the past, science educators in Christian environments had to chose between using secular textbooks and Christian textbooks. The Christian science textbooks were written mostly from a young-Earth, anti-evolution, anti-environmental perspective, and were therefore unsuitable in the minds of many Christian educators. On the other hand, these teachers wanted to have discussions of science and Christian faith integrated into their curricula, and so they found the secular books to be less than ideal as well.

Novare Science and Math has a high-school General Biology textbook in the works, with a target release date of the summer of 2020. This textbook is written from a Christian perspective, and presents the current scientific consensus on biological evolution. Novare has a FAQ page that includes the question “How will your biology books handle evolution?

For those who cannot wait until the 2020-2021 school year, Novare has a Beta edition of the textbook that will be available for the 2019-2020 school year.

Novare has other textbooks as well, such as Earth Science: God’s World, Our Home, written by myself. This eighth-grade level Earth Science textbook provides a Christian alternative to both secular textbooks, and the young-Earth creationist textbooks that presently dominate the Christian science curriculum market.
