Great book on the human body
Review by Belle
Lots of information on each of the 11 systems in the human body. We purchased this book to use as our health curriculum. Pictures are in black and white.
Detailed
Review by Kandi
Great details, but with the pictures were in color. Would make it easier to study.
Good info
Review by Stacy
I like that there is a lot of good info in here from a Biblical perspective. However, I do wish that it had those wonderful color photos that Masterbooks is so well known for.
Good information
Review by Rachel
This book has a lot of great information in it, not just about the human body, but about God and how the Bible ties in as well. The format could be a lot better, as the pages are a little crowded and more pictures in color would be nice, but it is written in an easy-to-understand way, so if you can overlook the formatting, it is a great book.
Great kit
Review by Kari
I have the kit that this came in. It’s a wonderful resource I recommend for all high schoolers. Especially those going into the medical fields after graduation. Christian texts are very hard to come by that have this level of quality while still be true to the Word of God. Wonderful curriculum!
Excellent book!
Review by Karen
Filled with information that is not only good for students, but great learning for parents too!
Great text combines anatomy and physiology with bible truth
Review by Patricia
Body By Design, by Alan L. Gillen is a high school textbook that integrates knowledge from anatomy and physiology with biblical creation. Whether you want to learn more about the body's central nervous system, cardiac system or respiratory system- every body system is covered in this comprehensive text. Filled with sharp photographs and classically drawn medical images, anatomy will jump out at the reader. This is one of the best anatomy books written for students that I have read.

Written in a graphically appealing style- sharp state of the art, up close diagrams bold fonts, and bold graphics, this informative book is perfect for kids of all ages, especially high school. This book is not only an authority on anatomy and physiology and every body system, but it is entertaining to read as well.


This book is divided into chapters or sections based body system categories. There is the science of every body system, and organ and even the functions at the cellular level. The plethora of information makes this so much more than an academic text, but a great resource to return to year after year. The indepth material covered makes it a good study guide for college level science and health studies. As a recent graduate of nursing school, I appreciated the accuracy and scholarship of research of this text. Any reader from younger students and adults students as well, will have a well rounded experience with the combination of science and its integration with biblical truth. In this day and age of secularism, it is more important than ever to see how science and faith go hand in hand.

The presentation of this book- its magazine article styled layout, photos and graphics makes this anatomy subject jump out at the reader. The biological complexity portrayed in this book testifies to God's glory. This unexpected way of looking at this body system is sure to leave impressionable young minds with a lasting taste of God's magnificent wonder. I found the information to be accurate and the terminology to be consistent with the subject matter. The scientific and medical depictions and graphs are accurate as well as visually appealing. The explanations as well as the medical illustrations make concepts about the brain, spine and synapses, easy to understand. I wish I had this book a few years ago as I was taking my anatomy courses. The only change I would like to see is a full color version of this book. As a blogger for Moms of Master Books I received a copy of this for the purpose of writing this review.
Excellent Human Body Book
Review by HomeschoolMom
When I first received this book I was a bit overwhelmed with the amount of information, but when you slow down and read through, it's very easy to follow along with. I haven't used it as a textbook yet, but will be over the next few years and I'm really looking forward to it. One of the things I find fascinating - with both science and history, is that when God is included, you're free to include more information and facts - making for a more complete study.
