Positive Action for Christ: The Life of Christ

“Positive Action For Christ is a publishing house specializing in youth curriculum for fundamental churches. It began as a single ProTeen club in 1969 at Falls Road Baptist Church in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. Soon other churches wanted to use the materials Frank Hamrick had written for his teens, and by 1971 thirty-five churches were using Frank’s materials. A board was formed to govern the fledgling ProTeen ministry and the organization incorporated as Positive Action For Christ, Inc. in July 1972.”

“Positive Action employs 13 full-time and several seasonal part-time staff and continues to see its product line and its sales volume increase. Thousands of youth in churches and schools in all 50 States and in over 30 countries around the world now use Positive Action For Christ materials.”

Mission Statement:

“Positive Action exists to equip Bible teachers to magnify the majesty of God.” 

To determine if Positive Action for Christ is a good fit for your family, a Doctrinal Statement available at the Positive Action website.

We received a copy of The Life of Christ for review purposes.  One of the first things that got our attention is the professional quality of all the materials provided.    The materials can be used several different ways depending on your needs.  Whether you are looking for a daily devotional, a gradable Bible curriculum, or Sunday School Lessons, this package includes everything you need and more.

What’s included in the Student Deluxe edition:

The student’s manual includes:

  • Content age-appropriate for middle school or high school
  • Illustrations and notes from the teacher’s lesson
  • An introductory section with reading and homework to be completed in advance
  • Additional student research for each lesson
  • A Digging Deeper section with further ideas for expanding each lesson
  • A recommended reading list
  • Original artwork to introduce each lesson
  • Full-color pages with charts, maps, and photos

A good portion of the lesson is spent on building proper “context” for the material to be studied.  This includes history, political climate, geography,  mapping, and timelines.  There is a section where the student(s) can record notes from the teacher’s lesson right into their own workbook.    There are also great ideas for “Digging Deeper”, with everything from research papers, suggestions for additional reading, word studies, etc.

The Teacher’s Manual is very complete and contains everything you need to teach and lead meaningful discussions, correct the Student Workbook, and administer quizzes and tests.

We were very impressed with this product! 🙂

    This would be a great in depth study for teens, and John would be a good place to start. Visiting from HOPE.
