Written by an accomplished teacher, practicing biologist, and internationally best-selling author, What Is Life? A Guide to Biology was developed to engage students who may never take another biology course—future business owners, lawyers, teachers, poets, etc. Drawing on his extensive classroom experience, Jay Phelan focuses on clearly articulating key concepts and eliminating unnecessary detail and topics—without introducing inaccuracies from simplification. What Is Life? prepares students to talk confidently and knowledgeably about science with their friends, to be intelligent consumers of scientific information, and to make responsible decisions about scientific issues. Now, What Is Life? A Guide to Biology with Physiology includes chapters on plant and animal physiology. Visit the What Is Life? preview site at www.whfreeman.com/phelanpreview

Evolution Chance and God Book Excerpt:

Evolution, Chance, and God looks at the relationship between religion and evolution from a philosophical perspective. This relationship is fascinating, complex and often very controversial, involving myriad issues that are difficult to keep separate from each other. Evolution, Chance, and God introduces the reader to the main themes of this debate and to the theory of evolution, while arguing for a particular viewpoint, namely that evolution and religion are compatible, and that, contrary to the views of some influential thinkers, there is no chance operating in the theory of evolution, a conclusion that has great significance for teleology. One of the main aims of this book is not simply to critique one influential contemporary view that evolution and religion are incompatible, but to explore specific ways of how we might understand their compatibility, as well as the implications of evolution for religious belief. This involves an exploration of how and why God might have created by means of evolution, and what the consequences in particular are for the status of human beings in creation, and for issues such as free will, the objectivity of morality, and the problem of evil. By probing how the theory of evolution and religion could be reconciled, Sweetman says that we can address more deeply key foundational questions concerning chance, design, suffering and morality, and God's way of acting in and through creation.
