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.

A great Bible curriculum for the entire family . . . one our family will use over and over again.

It explains so much to him that makes sense. We love it!! He loves the lessons, he can understand it because it doesn't use big overgrown words that he would have to look up in the dictionary to figure out what they mean. This book was made for kids his age.
JC5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent curriculum choiceDecember 28, 2016JCQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I can't say enough good things about this product. We are LOVING it. We have used many different bible studies as part of our homeschool curriculum and this one is by far my favorite. The kids love the stories and all the activities that align nicely with the stories. I love that there are different levels for the supplemental journal so all of my kids can be learning the same concepts and be challenged in their own way. I also appreciate the additional history tidbits, character concepts, and other cross curricular information that is included within this book. This just makes it more meaningful and easy to relate with for our entire family. I have had many people ask about the curriculum I use and this is one of the first things I mention. I have already purchased the Vol. 2 set that I know we will use upon completing Vol. 1.
MBJ5 Stars Out Of 5Who is God? What We Believe, Volume 1May 19, 2016MBJQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I have yet to use this text with our daughter, Awana, or a homeschool class during the 2016-17 school year; however, I am excited to do so. The presentation of the material is beautiful. The style of writing flows easily and guides the reader through the concepts. The activities suggested and the potential of time spent with your child or other students have far-reaching potential for God's glory.
For our family it's the content that draws us to this book. The Biblical worldview is rivaled by no other approach, particular church doctrine, or "philosophy" on which to live. We are excited about the impact this will have not only on our daughter, Awana clubbers, and homeschool students, but also on our family as a whole.

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.
