HomeschoolMama1 Stars Out Of 5Not Christian based!September 14, 2017HomeschoolMamaQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I had heard many positive reviews about this series (for homeschooling the elementary set) ... I eagerly anticipated getting my copy so we could get started on our history studies. Upon arrival and the perusal of the material, my heart sank. I do not think that the study of gods and pagan rituals is a good thing for any Christian home to be focusing on and that is exactly the focus this series has ... I believe there is a place for mentioning that they worshipped other gods (the Bible says as much), but it doesn't need to be glorified or studied to the point/extent that the author goes into. I also noticed the Bible stories themselves were far from accurate. This book is going straight back and we will find a new history book that is better suited for our home.

DawnTopeka, KansasAge: 35-44Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5Not for my family!September 6, 2016DawnTopeka, KansasAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 2Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1I can't imagine why Christian families use Well Trained Mine products. All products in which I have seen have a heavy Pagan or anti-Christian tone. Pagan fables are treated as if they are as valid as Christianity. The projects are very Pagan in nature. Some examples of Pagan projects are build a Pagan temple, mummify a chicken, make tattoos, etc. The Well Trained Mind curriculum design has children reading Mein Kampf and Communist Manifesto. As an adult solid in my faith, I still would not saturate my mind with the thoughts of Hitler. Where is the discernment amongst believers?!
