Book details

Join in the glorious uproar of creation with The Riot and the Dance Adventure Book, adapted from the boisterous new nature documentary by bestselling children's author N.D. Wilson.

Look Inside the Book

Now you can follow along with Dr. Gordon Wilson as he traverses our planet, basking in God's masterpieces whether he's catching wildlife in mountain ponds or in the jungles of Sri Lanka. (Yeah, he did get bitten, but not by the cobra.) Beautiful photos and powerful narration will open your eyes to the extraordinary glory found all over the animal kingdom, starting with your own back yard. As a student, Gordon Wilson was told he'd never be a "real" biologist unless he stopped blabbing about all that Creator-creature nonsense. Now, Gordon is the Senior Fellow of Natural History at New Saint Andrews College and the author of The Riot and the Dance, a textbook for high school and undergraduate biology students. Gordon Wilson received his Ph.D. in Environmental Science and Public Policy from George Mason University in 2003.

What people are saying:

"The stunning cinematography and explanations of God's design will leave you giving our awesome Creator the praise he deserves." -Ken Ham, Answers in Genesis Founder and President

"My wife and I loved it." ~John Piper, author and founder of DesiringGod.org

"Riot is not an apologetic for creationism. That s too small of a topic for Gordon Wilson. It's an apology for wonder. ... Riot has a narrative so satiating, you might want to invite your unbelieving neighbors." -Dave Goodwin, President of the Association of Classical Christian Schools (ACCS)

"The beauty of nature has much to tell us about its true Author." -Scott A. Minnich, PhD Professor of Microbiology

"Absolutely stunning." -Dr. Günter Bechly, paleontologist

"If your world has faded to black and white, The Riot and the Dance is the cure for colorblindness." -Timothy G. Standish, PhD Senior Scientist Geoscience Research Institute

"Dr. Wilson's narration brings to life the poetry and lyricism of nature." -Paul Garner, Fellow of the Geological Society of London

"A vividly powerful experience." -Denyse O'Leary, author, journalist, blogger

"The Riot and the Dance not only a feast for the eyes, it's also a hearty meal for the soul." -Marcus R. Ross, PhD Professor of Geology

"God's glory and character is certainly seen in His 'Wild Kingdom' all around us, if we dare to look." -Joseph Francis PhD, Dean, School of Science, Math, Technology and Health

My grandson really watched this

Absolutely love this book

I bought this for my 8yo son who absolutely loves natural science! We watched the Riot and the Dance Water documentary and it brought me to tears! To watch something with a clear and godly message in an area where Christians have ceded so much ground filled me with great joy. And to enjoy the video and now the book with my son and not have to fight the atheist world view is just wonderful!
Keep up the good work! Fight the good fight! I can’t wait to see more from this series!

God's Greatness and Beauty in a Fallen World

Great little companion to the nature movie and coming TV shows. "Dr. G" reminds us of God speaking in and through His creation even in its fallenness and how He reveals beauty amidst ugliness. This little book is good up show my grands God's glory through His creation. Beautiful
