About the book

A world created in perfection, now unveiled...

From the frontiers of scientific discovery, researchers are now taking design elements from the natural world and creating extraordinary breakthroughs that benefit our health, our quality of life, our ability to communicate, and even help us work more efficiently.

An exciting look at cutting-edge scientific advances, Discover of Design highlights incredible examples that include:

• How things like batteries, human organ repair, microlenses, automotive engineering, paint, and even credit card security all have links to natural designs
• Innovations like solar panels in space unfurled using technology gleaned from beech tree leaves, and optic research rooted in the photonic properties of opal gemstones
• Current and future research from the fields of stealth technology, communications, cosmetics, nanotechnology, surveillance, and more!

Take a fantastic journey into the intersection of science and God's blueprints for life - discovering answers to some of the most intricate challenges we face. Experience this powerful apologetics message in a multi-purpose resource as a personal enrichment tool or as an educational supplement.

My Thoughts

If there would be ONE reference book in science you would have to buy this year, I would suggest you Discovery of Design.   I admit that I didn’t know what to expect with such a title but when I received the book I was very impressed with it.

The book consists of little articles telling the reader about how scientific development is often based on things in nature.   The articles are grouped depending of their subject like microorganisms, insect world, flight, underwater life, land animals, people, vegetation, and nonliving objects.  Each article has two pages of information, references as well as questions for further studies.   No sure how to answer the questions?  No problem.   At the end of the book you will find an appendix which contains the answers to the questions.  

While reading this book you will learn more about day-today things you are using like tires for example.   I am amazed on how God has being creative to the point that scientist today are observing nature and are trying to reproduce it through objects we use in our homes.

Whether you read this for yourself or share a few of the stories with your kids, this book is a little gem in itself.   It will help you to understand how things works as well as discover nature through new lenses.

The book Discovery of Design is available everywhere even
