Laura5 Stars Out Of 5critical for home school student leaving for collegeSeptember 11, 2018LauraQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If your home school student attends a secular university he / she will be inundated with secular religions in a daily basis. Can they defend their faith? 90% of children raised in church leave the church when they leave home. This resource will help your student understand the atheist / agnostic views and will equip them to defend their faith from secular humanism.
KarenSan Antonio, TXAge: 25-34Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Very important read in our current culture.August 1, 2018KarenSan Antonio, TXAge: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This has showed me how humanistic religions like beliefs in evolution are actually false religions. In the public school system, they seem to be presented as religion neutral however, they are very humanistic and becoming more and more anti-christian. I can see it so clearly now after how this book breaks down how and why that is. I was especially interested in the chapter about Scientology. I have in-laws that are part of that organization and found it difficult to understand what they believe. This book has really helpful. It is very important to understand the beliefs of the world around us so that we may better defend our faith in our ever changing culture and spread the Gospel. I will definitely have my children read through this book when they are in High school.
Sallysal5 Stars Out Of 5Very Relevant to Modern TimesJuly 31, 2018SallysalQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the third and final book of the series as of right now. It is so very relevant to modern society. It covers secular and Atheistic religions. This book really allows you to compare the various religions and viewpoints featured. It shows the contrasts between the religions and a Biblical Christian worldview. It is a fantastic resource for both adults and homeschool. From a homeschool standpoint, I will probably introduce this at a high school level. Throughout the text, there are multiple authors and I feel like this gives a much more well-rounded viewpoint on the various religions. I think this is a must-read for Christians today. There is so much background and information, and the text is very, very thorough. If you are using for homeschool, I highly recommend the teacher's guide as a companion.
nicole BTHMWashington Parish, LAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Answering questions, and providing ANSWERSJuly 26, 2018nicole BTHMWashington Parish, LAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The last volume in the series, is the newest, and one that is best for high schoolers, as it deals with how modern culture is trying to change God's religions into a pervted man's version, that does its best to bash Christianity, so that the fallacies inherent in their viewpoints are not seen. It's also a good second volume, to use with Volume 1, for a High School credit, if you wish to focus on Christianity and the threats against it.
The third book in the series cover Secular and Atheistic Religions, and I think kids need a good understanding of Volume 1, in order to be able to understand the differences presented in this book, and the underlying dogma behind them. Religions covered include Atheism, Agnosticism, Secular Humanism, Nazism: A Variant of Secular Humanism, Scientology (Thetanism/Church of .Scientology/Hubbardism), Communism: The Failed Social Experiment, and Postmodernism. As you can see, there is a lot of historical basis and involvement in those religions, so a good understanding of modern history would also be ideal. Once again, there is not one set 'author' for this text, but a series of authors, taking on eachchapter, like the previous books. This allows for different opinions, but ALL from the Christian viewpoint, so you aren't getting just ONE viewpoint!
The second part of Volume 3 deals with Epicureanism and Evolutionary Religions, Dualism and the Types of Religions, Christian Syncretism with Evolution and Other Belief Systems (Compromise), The Religion of Naturalism, Materialism, and Empiricism. This part is excellent for class discussion, and for looking at the philosophy and logic behind the different systems. I would also call it a college level area, as it was VERY similar to the Comparative Religion and Ethics class I had in college!
The rest of the Volume helps to answer questions, and tie up the series. This includes Afterlife: What Must I Do to Be Saved?, The Bible versus Other Alleged Holy Books, What Makes a Christian Martyr Differ .from Other Faiths Martyrs?, Do Secularists Have a Foundation for Morality?, the Intelligent Design Movement, Evolutionary Humanism the Most .Blood-stained Religion Ever?, Responding to Atheist Propaganda and Skeptics and Evolution (Not Creation) Is a God .of the Gaps. This section REALLY prepares the student for the perils and attacks, on their faith, that they will MOST likely face once the start college, or are already facing. Being able to answer these questions lets your faith attacker know that you have not only done your research, but have thoroughly researched the areas, and more than likely know more than they do, about their point of view!
