This book was recently published as the Christian Liberty Nature Reader Book 5, and it investigates the wonders of the human body. Students learn about how and why God created the systems of sight, hearing, breathing, touching, and thinking. Concepts are illustrated, and each chapter concludes with comprehension questions. This second edition has been updated to improve its medical accuracy.

Chapter One—How Food is Used
What Is Made from Blood?

In this chapter, you will learn why your body needs blood to develop and operate properly. As you learn more and more about how your body works, remember to praise the wonderful Creator whose wisdom designed each and every function of the human body. Everything in a plant or tree is made from the sap. This is, then, the building material, as we may say, of the plant. In much the same way, everything in your body is made from blood. The blood, then, is to your body what sap is to a plant. It is the common building material of the body.

As an example, consider a rose. It is made from the sap that comes to the bud through the vessels in the stem. In the same way, the little finger of the child becomes the large finger of the man, from the blood that comes to it through the vessels in the arm. As the stem of the plant grows larger in time, so does the arm of a child. The sap makes the stem grow, and the blood makes the arm grow.

If you cut off a branch of a plant, it stops growing because the sap no longer comes to it. It soon dies and decays. If the arm of a child is cut off, it cannot grow, because no more blood can come to it. Like a branch that has been cut off, it dies and decays.
