Moms of Master Books are Excavating Minerals!

Mineral Book, the Cover 500x658The Mineral Book is the newest release in the best-selling Wonders of Creation Series!

Developed for multi-level teaching, the book is conveniently laid out with our unique skill-based color-coding system that allows you to educate your child at the perfect level for him or her. This educational resource is filled with full-color pictures and illustrations, and can be used in the classroom, for independent study, or homeschool settings.

Created by Dr. David McQueen, The Mineral Book is the embodiment of a dream to make mineralogy accessible to beginners, students, and hobbyists who want to learn about the order and beauty of minerals shaped by the Creator.  Readers get to learn all about the inherent properties of minerals, where they can be found, and how they are used.  With the added bonus of  fun facts and a super-cool 24-inch, full-color pull-out poster, this is a book moms are going to  like as much as their kids!

Minerals are a gift of God’s grace and provision.

Salt is a perfect example of one such vital mineral. It helps maintain the fluid in our blood cells and is used to transmit information in our nerves and muscles so we know how important it is to life. Jesus told his followers that we are the salt of the earth (Matthew 5:13), something thus needed for health and flavor.

Finally, a God-honoring book that reveals the first mention of minerals in the Bible, symbolic usages, their current values in culture and society, and their mention in heaven.

    I really just enjoy seeing the natural beauty of geodes as much as any man-made work using minerals.

    Something that is beautiful and complex in nature that can also be used by man to create art and other things of beauty.

      David McQueen here author of the Mineral Book…we lived in D.C. from 1977-1981 and I sure enjoyed the marbles you speak of…keep in mind this: marble is a metamorphic rock. The main (but not only) mineral in marble is calcite.

    I love all the amazing colors of minerals. I think my favorite art use is inlay work – mineral and wood together!

    I love the natural ways that our Lord has chosen to display his creations, like the Grand Canyon or ice caves!

    Marble carving, mosaics, jewelry – all of it impresses me. I love seeing what people have done with the beauty all around us over time.

    Thanks for hosting this!

    Warmly,

    Geodes are fascinating to me and I think they also demonstrate how complex people are onside, no matter how worn and dirty they may seem outside. :-)
