Chemistry Daniel Zuidema

Daniel R. Zuidema. Chemistry.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, May 31st, 2016. 48 pp.

This is a booklet on a Christian worldview of the academic discipline of Chemistry that is part of the Faithful Learning Series published by Presbyterian and Reformed that provides an introductory look at various academic discipline from the perspective of the Christian worldview.  This is the third book I’m reading in this series and I’m really enjoying this series.

In this particular book the author looks at the field of Chemistry theologically by utilizing the paradigm of Creation, Fall and Redemption.  Beginning with creation, the author argues that Chemistry is one way we mirror the glory of God, in coming to understand and utilizing God created chemical processes.  I appreciate how under the section of “Creation” the author argues that chemicals are not in of itself evil, but it is the use of it that can be used for evil.  He gives us examples of things that we might thing as bad can at times have functions that are not evil.  It is a good reminder that we must not be dualists who are against what is physical as Christians.  Since I do not have a degree in Chemistry I appreciated the author breaking down for us the various courses in Chemistry such as organic, physical, analytical, biological, etc.

We have quite a stream of readers of our blog from Southern California and I thought it would be helpful to post this.

Christians must definitely be informed in how they vote where they vote not against their principles but as much as for it.  You might not think there’s much reason to vote concerning presidential candidates but there’s still other candidates for other offices.

Here’s the voter’s guide for San Diego County:

Ratings:

We have changed our ratings system from the Thumbs Up to a Five Star system.

Every candidate is considered after thorough research; we also have a questionnaire for candidates to complete.

Here is our new rating system:

  •  : The best candidate. Our strongest endorsement.
  • : Very good.
  • : Acceptable.
  • Vote only to prevent worse candidate(s) from winning.
  • : Terrible. Do Not Vote. All your other votes will count.

The Jekyll Island Chronicles Book One A Machine Age War

Steve Nedvidek and Ed Crowell. The Jekyll Island Chronicles, Book One: A Machine Age War.  Marietta, GA: Top Shelf Productions, May 31st, 2016. 176 pp.

This was a fun graphic novel.  I was looking for something like this for some time now and I’m glad I found it!  This is a historical fiction that has a bit of steampunk feel though it is centered in the 1910s-1920s than British Victorian Era.  The story line exceeded my expectations.  This work tells us a story of the post-World War One period in which US president Woodrow Wilson was trying to sell the League of the Nations both abroad and at home.  However this is not about the League of the Nations but an alternative history of how a secret conspiracy group is going about perpetuating terrorism and a president who is worried about the future.  Eventually at a place called Jekyll Island in the state of Georgia a gathering of the leading men of the time would be united to fight this threat by raising a team of superheroes.
