Series: What We Believe
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. This is why 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.
These books are great for parents to use with their children at home. At a time when Christian teachings are subject to increasing hostility, children must learn early what they believe, why they believe it, and how to boldly defend those beliefs.
The What We Believe series helps parents and their children ask the important questions-and answers those questions with uncompromising biblical truth.
A wonderful tool to help Christian parents keep family discipleship front and center. This is one curriculum in a class by itself.
Author of The Ultimate Guide to Homeschooling
A fantastic and much-needed resource for parents to help kids build a biblical worldview. I'm looking forward to taking my own kids through these valuable lessons.
Excellent, Bible-rich worldview curriculum.
A great Bible curriculum for the entire family . . . one our family will use over and over again.

Sonja CrutcherTexasAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Everything I wanted in a Bible studyApril 9, 2014Sonja CrutcherTexasAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I bought this for my 10-11 y.o. ds for his Bible class this school year in our homeschool. It has been everything I hoped to have in a Bible curriculum. The chapter titles clearly detail the study. The narrative style, appropriate stories, subtopics, and the worldview studies have all been excellent. There is plenty of Scripture covered in each chapter, which includes the "Hide it in Your Heart" feature. My favorite feature is the Worldview study at the end of each chapter. The topics are appropriate for the age level, but very thorough! We are tackling worldview materials that most curriculum never cover. I like having both a Bible study and Worldview study in one book. I look forward to continuing these studies. Not the same old Bible stories material at all! There are deep truths in this material.
anneToronto, Ontario, CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A fun and spiritually challenging study.November 8, 2013anneToronto, Ontario, CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As a teacher and a homeschooling Mom, I can truly recommend this series. Both my son and myself thoroughly enjoyed this study. The text brought up worldviews and challenged our thinking in a straightforward way. This study is biblically based and allows the reader to compare his/her beliefs to whom God is and what He has done for us. The inter-active journal is also a fantastic resource, though you need to plan a good amount of time to insure it is completed. (we used it for a writing grade in addition to other writing assignments) The journal allows for drawing, creating of mini books, etc. and our son chose to use the Praise Report as an opportunity for song writing! Thank you to all who created this! God Bless.
Q: Suggested age? What ages is this program recommended for?
This is recommended for ages 6-14.

Tell us a little about yourself. I am a father of six children, all of whom have been taught at home. Though I currently work as a freelance writer and editor, and I have more than a dozen years' experience in Christian publishing at the management level.
What was your motivation behind this project? The project was born out of a crying need among homeschooling families for a quality curriculum to help them instruct elementary-age children in a biblical worldview as well as the fundamental beliefs of the Christian faith. Our publisher, Apologia, has published many wonderful science textbooks for Christian families and schools, and they sought us out to help them expand their offerings to include a series of full-color textbooks on worldview. Who Is God? (And Can I Really Know Him?) is the first in a series of four books.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? John and I hope that these books will change the way children and their families look at the world each day. In a world of competing ideas, these books are designed to help children learn to discern the truth by using Gods Word as a lens through which to view the world around them -- to see everything the way God sees it. We pray that these books will bring the world, its Creator, and His amazing love into clearer focus for parents and their children, helping them to build an unshakable faith to last a lifetime.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I have been tremendously blessed by the project, which has required me to approach God anew with a childlike faith. It's not easy to describe His wonders and beauty and mysteries using only a fifth-grade vocabulary, but I did my best. Now it's in the hands of the Holy Spirit to use as He sees fit.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I hesitate to mention the names of friends and colleagues for fear of omitting someone. However, among contemporary authors, I am particularly fond of the works of Kathleen Norris, Mark Buchanan, Jan Karon, and Ken Gire. Jack Hayford has been a huge influence on my life.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Our publisher, Apologia, is well known for its customer support, and this product will prove no exception. Parents and teachers who will be using these books as curriculum will have free access to extensive teaching helps and supplemental materials posted on the Apologia website.
