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:
- 67 in-depth video lectures (28 hours total)
- Textbook (Hardcover or PDF) – Updated July 2021! Click the Sample Textbook tab on this page for more information
- Lab Manual (PDF or printed)
- Teacher’s Guide – includes test and lab manual answers. (PDF or printed paperback)

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. This class is good for one full credit for a high school lab science. Dr. Wise earned his BA in geology from the University of Chicago, and his MA and PhD degrees in palaeontology 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.
