Body of Evidence

Nearly 30 years ago, when I first came to the USA to speak at churches and conferences, I met Dr. David Menton in St. Louis. He earned a PhD in cell biology from Brown University. He served as a biomedical research technician at Mayo Clinic and then as an associate professor of anatomy at Washington University School of Medicine (St Louis). For almost two decades he has been profiled in American Men and Women of Science—A Biographical Directory of Today’s Leaders in Physical, Biological and Related Sciences. Dr. Menton has lectured throughout the United States and Canada on the creation vs. evolution controversy.

When I first met him, he was a professor (teaching anatomy) at Washington University School of Medicine. Dr. Menton has been honored for his brilliance as a teacher. When I first heard him speak, I was amazed at his communication abilities. Here was a very qualified professor who could communicate aspects of anatomy and physiology at a level the whole audience could understand—in a quite entertaining way but also with a challenging biblical message.

When Dr. Menton “retired,” he came to work full time with Answers in Genesis, and now resides in northern Kentucky. He presents fascinating workshops at the Creation Museum, and still speaks at conferences and churches. His presentations such as Fearfully and Wonderfully Made have been very popular, and DVDs have been purchased from all over the world. Dr. Menton now has quite a number of presentations on DVD. If you have never seen them, I urge you to obtain them.

We now have a new series of DVDs, entitled Body of Evidence, of Dr. Menton presenting his wealth of knowledge concerning anatomy for students and parents—in fact, for anyone who wants to be “wowed” by that amazing design of human body. You will be captivated as this PhD anatomist takes you on a journey through  the human body—from cells and tissues to the major organs and systems. See the incredible way that God has knit together our bodies. The series consists of eight DVDs with 16 programs:

  1. Cells & Tissues
  2. The Skeletal System
  3. The Integumentary System (Skin)
  4. The Cardiovascular System (Heart)
  5. The Respiratory System (Lungs)
  6. The Digestive System
  7. The Urinary System
  8. The Hearing Ear & The Seeing Eye

Today’s teens and their families are inundated with the evolutionary worldview—from basically every area of life! Even many “Christian” textbooks include millions of years and other ideas that are the foundation of evolution.

To help right that wrong, Answers in Genesis joined (the American Family Association) to coproduce the new 16-part anatomy and physiology series Body of Evidence, featuring Dr. Menton of AiG. We are thrilled to be able to release Creator-honoring teaching by a man of such high professional reputation and strong Christian character. If you’ve heard him at an AiG conference, you’ve seen a master-presenter! This grandfatherly creationist scientist uses his special brand of humor to help make scary words and hard topics easy to understand.

We begin shipping the first sets of this wonderful new series later this month. Go to the product page, so you can see a sample segment and preorder the set of DVDs with study guide (they are also available individually).

The study guide contains questions that allow students to get the most benefit from the Body of Evidence DVD series. Detailed questions follow the order of topics presented and guide students to find the answers. The questions also serve as an outline for the course. Each student will want his or her own copy to maximize learning.

You can also obtain the study guide separately.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
