Concept: This graphic cover depicts harmony, disharmony and a return to harmony - an element of disorder descending on order and back. The ray of light and human silhouette on the star trails spectrum set a pattern disturbed by an action and the consequences of action speaks form out of chaos, something out of nothingness - a Supreme image resonating a mortal one.

This book is not written for everyone. Fearfully and Wonderfully Made is written for those who believe that a God, a Divine being, an Intelligent Designer, created them. The study of the human body is an astonishing celebration of our Creator, who with extraordinary care molded our bodies, provided us with novelty to celebrate our differences, and integrated us with such wonderful systems, functions and capabilities that such praise is stopped in our throats.

The anatomical and physiological aspects of the body are applied to aspects of training in an introductory and pervasive way, including the biomechanical applications to movement in performance. Designed with practical applications of exercises, this book serves as a basic textbook for students interested in performing. The text is also a wonderful complement to homeschool education.
