Product Description

In this comprehensive, introductory course to worldviews, students will learn to build a Biblical worldview, identify literature based on a biblical worldview, speak the biblical worldview into culture and learn about the founding of modern America upon a biblical worldview. Writing, analysis, outlines, short answer, paragraph plot summary and fill-in-the blank answers focus on developing the student's mental ability to seek out the core beliefs presented through media and culture. Utilizing popular movies (The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life), classic literature (Frankenstein, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) and apologetic material (Mere Christianity, Know What You Believe, Answers for Difficult Days) students learn reading comprehension, analyze different worldviews according to a Christian view and study topics on ethics, man, history, devil, and more. 479 pages, softcover.

    As a former student

    As a former student I believe this product causes more harm than good. If a parent doesn't know why they believe what they believe, they are in absolutely no position to push those beliefs on their children. if you're thinking about having your child take this course you should definitely take it first, as well as an unbiased studying of other world views and beliefs. If you don't already understand the content of this entire series by yourself, it is not your place to force-feed it to a child, especially your own child.

    Additionally, it's mentioned in comments about how the workload can force time away from almost all subjects except for math and science. This is extremely damaging to a child's development. A child should learn about history and about art and literature. A child should be taught foreign languages and government and economics and statistics.

    Additionally, I sure hope that all of those homeschooling parents out there truly understand that if they want their child to truly succeed, their child is going to have to learn more than their parents ever did. Science, art, history, even math has changed so much in the last 25-30 years that most parents haven't actually learned anything that is in modern textbooks. It is extremely easy to spread ignorance to your children while they are being homeschooled, and it is extremely important not to do so. It has the potential to ruin your child's life. I would definitely recommend a private school over homeschooling, unless you're an up-to-date expert on everything. And in the end, this course takes away the time you have to teach them more important things. And it's not particularly effective, I took this curse and it has a great many logical fallacies in it, as well as horrible misspellings and grammatical errors. This series almost singlehandedly convinced me that everything this series stands for is wrong.

    Great foundation for World views study

    I am using this book for my 11th grader, first-time home- schooled child. One of my older boys was always home schooled and took this course in 8th grade. It was very difficult and we thought he would give up. He took the rest of the courses and did extremely well. I chose to do this over two years as a supplement to Bob Jones History. It covers some of the same ground (we are not using the book in order of its contents - doing the ending first to coincide with the early American history he is studying right now.)

    This gives my son a depth of understanding of our country's origins that even the history book does not explore. The two work nicely together. In completing it over two years, and at a later age, I think he will get a lot of good and not have the stress of the huge workload. He really enjoys the concepts and work!

    I knew quite a lot of students who took this course in either 8th or ninth grade. It is very time-consuming, so the other subjects should be limited to math and science. But it is worth it. All three Worldviews of the Western World courses that follow are also time-intensive and well worth the effort.

    I have to admit, however, that there are issues with the editing. There are several misspellings, grammar errors, etc. We just laugh them off and go on. This was a book written by a family and they have chosen not to release a corrected edition.

    I first considered purchasing this book during the summer, but decided to just use what I already had at home. My children became very frustrated. I decided to go ahead and purchase this book and I am very glad I did. Both of my children are loving it and say they find it much more interesting. We have all been very pleased.

    Excellent - Fills in the Gaps

    I feel this has been an excellent study for my High School children. It has filled in the gaps to things I may have missed when giving my homeschooled students a chrstian education. The more you put into it, the more one would get out of it. I wish there was a little more guidance with answering the questions, like a teachers guide, but I have found it okay to get through without. I LOVE how the paragraph writing turns into one larger paper at the end (of the first section... that's as far as we have gone so far). My children are average students that HATE to write. Of course, they wrote very basic papers, but I felt they did well on them considering how they truly hate that sort of thing. A more advanced student could have a very biblical sound, scripture backing, worldview essay!

    This is a high school curriculum. Both of my older children have gone through it and they both recommend it and say it helped them and tell me I have to have my younger three go through it as well. They value it themselves, that much.
