“Who is God?” by Apologia Press

We have been so blessed by “Who Is God,” by Apologia Press.  But we before we get further into our opinion, let me give you a little background on this product:

“Apologia has teamed with Summit Ministries to bring you the “What We Believe” Series. The “What We Believe” Series is an outstanding way to teach your child the essential beliefs of the Christian faith, but it’s so much more! With this student-directed, Bible-based curriculum, your children will learn how to use Scripture as a lens through which to view the world around them—to see everything the way God sees it—and know the truth.”

Who is God? And Can I Really Know Him?, the first book in the series on Biblical Worldview, introduces the concept of Worldview and lays a foundation for Christian truth through Scriptural references, storytelling, scripture memorization, and guided journaling.  

The basis for this study is something we are all too familiar with: “Our children are bombarded on a daily basis with competing messages. Every song, movie, book, TV show, blog, and game is full of ideas—ideas about truth, morality, beauty, identity, faith, and more. Not all of these ideas are true. Some are wrong, some are deceptive, and some are outright destructive. It is more important than ever that young children be equipped to discern among competing ideas and stand in the truth.”

So what are our thoughts about it?  Simply this: 

LOVE IT!! 🙂

We have been using this book to begin our school day since we received it and have all truly enjoyed this study.  Who Is God? is full of Godly truth and each and every concept is backed up with Scripture.  The kids (11 and 15) say they are enjoying it because, “it makes them think!”  🙂 The short stories really help bring the concept to life. 

I enjoy it because, in addition to the wonderful content, there is not a lot of prep time involved for the teacher.  In fact, there is no reason they could not do this independently.  Each section has thought provoking questions for discussion.   There are ten lessons in the book, which can be completed in one to two weeks, depending on the amount of time spent journaling and working on the memorization.  

We will continue using this study throughout the school year and look forward to using the second book in the series, Who Am I? And What Am I Doing Here?, next year.

What a wonderful way to start the school day!

    I love Apologia materials and I love Summit Ministries. My daughter is going to serve as a counselor for the month of July at Summit. I would love to win this product to use with my son.
