Elements of Faith, Hydrogen to Tin, is Volume One of a wonderfully unique series designed to introduce your child to the elements of the Periodic Table. How much your child will actually retain long-term is questionable, but Hydrogen to Tin has certainly taken what is often a dry, dull topic and infused it with as much vitality as we have ever seen. The facts supplied for each element are simply fascinating including in many cases how it was discovered, how it is being used today, and even where the name for the element originated. The author Richard Duncan, an engineer with a Bachelor's Degree in Chemical Engineering, also includes a short discussion of each element's importance in the history of science and a quick quiz to see how much information you've retained. Plus there are simple chemistry experiments scattered throughout this book.  

In addition there is yet another distinction that sets Hydrogen to Tin apart from other chemistry books.  Because a study of elements naturally lends itself to an awe of God's creation, Duncan has also woven into each element's summary relevant spiritual applications. So Hydrogen to Tin also doubles as a devotional guide ideally done as a family, but it can be used for individual study.  

Hydrogen to Tin also includes a glossary and the answers to quizzes. Written for ages 12 and older, but if you use it as a family devotional you will discover that much younger children will find the material equally intriguing.

Fun and interesting June 1, 2012
Reviewer: Laura girl  
I had my son read through this as in introduction to chemistry, to whet his appetite. My daughter picked it up and read here and there and then wanted to know more about some of the elements. This is not our primary chemsitry text but a very good additional resource.

Excellent supplement to chemistry course May 31, 2012
Reviewer: Denice  
My son read this book as a supplement to a chemistry course he was doing. He loved it! There were many times that I couldn't get him to stop reading it (which typically never happens!). The information is laid out nicely, each element on a two page spread. The author gives the history, some very interesting facts, examples of how it is used in today's environment, a short quiz and best of all, a short biblical or spiritual lesson that is relevant to that particular element. The reader will know that without a doubt, God's hand was responsible for each and every element covered in this book! I would higly recommend this book to all students in middle and high school. I hope that they come out with a volume 2!
