    This game is more fun than some church services I've been to! This new game from a new publisher helps us learn about the Bible and contemporary Christian life in a variety of ways. Round 1 consists of trivia questions about the Bible, Christian music artists, and "What Would Church Folk Do?". Round 2 is the action round, with physical challenges that have players laughing, dancing, and singing. In Round 3, players must decide whether a phrase comes from the Bible or is just a common Christian expression. This game moves quickly, taking only 20-30 minutes. It may even be a good evangelism tool! 4 or more players.

    If I were to give you these four clues "Elijah," "Esau," "Jacob" and "Nazarites," could you tell me which one didn't belong? How about the connection between the other three? Not one of those feel-good, easy-cheesy Bible games with answers like "church" or "pew," this game will have you dredging the trenches of your memory looking for solid (and many times obscure!) facts straight from the pages of the Bible. Fun and educational, it works like this - the board features a triangle-shaped track with 30 spaces along which players move forward for correct answers, but may have to, in certain situations, move backwards for incorrect answers. Players are given four clues, and they must decide, for 1 point, which of the four doesn't belong, and for 3 points, the connection between the other three. They must always answer in this order; players cannot get points or name the connection without first eliminating the one that doesn't fit. If a player answers both parts correctly, they continue to get questions until they answer part of a question incorrectly. Bonus points are available for the next player to "steal" that question. "Give" and "Take" questions add an extra element to the game; if the player receiving a question doesn't know the answer (and thinks another player may not either!), they can slap down one of their "Give" cards and assign it to them. If that player doesn't answer both parts correctly, they must move backwards four spaces, but if they do answer correctly, they move forward four. If it's not your turn, but you know the answer and the receiving player hesitates, slap down your "Take" card and shout out your answer. If you get it right, move forward 4 spaces, but be careful - if you don't answer the whole thing correctly, you move backwards 4 spaces! With 500 double-sided cards, for a total of 1000 questions, players will be scrambling to study their Bible before the next play date! References for each fact are given at the bottom of each card in italics if you'd like to research anything. (Oh, do you want to know the answer to the puzzle – or have you already figured it out? The one that doesn't belong is "Jacob" – because the other three are hairy.). For 3-6+ players, game time is approximately 40 minutes. ~ Megan

    The state has declared a crackdown on the Christian church, allowing a wave of persecution and injustice to prevail. As common citizens, you must weigh your loyalties: fight for the church, or support the state? Unauthorized is a “social deduction” game, meaning players begin with a role, but may change over time. Some players are Police (loyal to the state), some are Pastors (loyal to the church), and the rest are Neutrals. Each player begins with a hand of cards - red for State, green for Church. During a turn, players choose a card from their hand to play – the color determines the loyalty they choose for that round. Each player can also perform a special action, usually involving trading or giving cards, or releasing players from prison. Additionally, the Pastor can discard State cards from any player, while the Police can interrogate players (forcing them to prove their loyalty, lest they end up in prison) and even choose to execute a Neutral! After 4 rounds, each player checks if they have played a majority of Red or Green cards: if most people support the Church and at least 1 is free, the Church wins. Otherwise, the State wins. 6-12 players; ~30 minute playtime.

    Have you heard the good news? You probably have, but in 34 AD, most people hadn’t. In Commissioned, players take on the role of well-known apostles (such as Paul, John, and Barnabas) as they attempt to spread the gospel across the Mediterranean amidst the persecution and confusion of the early church. Each game begins by selecting one of five scenario cards, each with specific tasks and special rules. Players begin in a single city with a small (but growing) church membership in the region based on the selected scenario. Each round, players draw “faith cards” (representing their apostle’s works), face Trials (such as false teachers, who prevent the growth of the church), Pray (select faith cards to help the church), Share their advice on which cards to play, Move to a new city, Grow the church, and Mature (acquire new faith cards). This process continues until the victory condition is met and all players win, or 5 cities’ churches have been “extinguished,” in which case they lose. An additional game mode allows one player to become the “Adversary,” who actively works to undermine the developing church. If you’ve ever wanted to experience the trials of the early church in board-game format, this is certainly your best bet! Comes with an appendix which explains some of the historical background and biblical citations. 2-6 players. 1 hour playtime.

    Learn the value of using limited resources wisely as you strategically sow your seeds in this fun card game. There are three types of seeds: time, money, and labor. Players get 3 seeds each turn and must choose which crops to play them on in hopes of receiving the best harvest. Players can also swap crop and harvest cards and play event cards to maximize their points. The player who earns the most points wins. Sow your seeds wisely, because you reap where you sow! Play time is about 30-45 minutes. For 2-5 players. ~ Rachel

    Now this popular party game is available in a Bible edition perfect for families, youth groups, and church activities! If you're not familiar with the regular edition, Apples to Apples is a hilarious card game for 4-10 players. The game consists of red apple cards and green apple cards. The green apple cards each feature an adjective such as "harmful," "friendly," etc., and if you're not sure exactly what the word means, each card contains a helpful list of synonyms at the bottom. Red apple cards contain nouns – people, places, things, or events. In the Bible edition, the red apple cards all contain nouns from the Bible or Christian history, and a Bible verse is featured on the bottom of each card. In the first round, one player is elected the "judge," and he or she deals out seven cards to each player including him/herself. He or she then flips over a green adjective card. Each player (except the judge) plays a red noun card face down that they feel best fits that adjective. The judge shuffles the cards (so they won't know who played which card), reads through them, decides which card is the best fit (or the funniest, depending on the judge!), and awards the green apple card to that player. Then the player on the left of the judge becomes the next judge, who replenishes everyone's hand to seven cards, and the second round begins. The first player to gather four green apple cards wins! The game contains 432 red apple cards, 144 green apple cards, card trays, and instructions which include instructions for three game variations. This one is sure to be an instant hit with your family and friends! ~ Megan

    Phonics instruction integrated with Bible stories and verses. Is a well-done program with these characteristics exactly what you're looking for? Master Books has introduced an easy-to-use program with straight-forward lessons and little prep for the teacher. Starting with letter recognition it proceeds through short vowels, long vowels, and some digraphs. Both letter sounds and printing letter strokes are taught.

    Organization is not typical (N, D, A, T, S, P). The accompanying narratives are in biblical chronological order, however. Daily lessons introduce letters with a biblical narrative (N is for nothing, none, not even a bit! Genesis 1:1-2) and a Bible verse. The lesson/narrative is scripted for the teacher and includes questions for the student, finger tracing, listening, identifying words with the letter sound, and reading practice followed by a worksheet for the student to complete. Bonus (optional) activities are provided to use as needed and time permits. Introductory material for the teacher includes general instruction, a writing readiness assessment, sight words for each lesson, helpful hints for teaching the lessons, a materials list, a daily lesson schedule (5 days a week for 18 weeks), and a progress chart. There are periodic reviews.

    This is a one semester course for either Kindergarten or First Grade. It seems like the publisher may be planning a sequel but if not this is an excellent standalone and will get your student off to a good start. ~ Janice

    Now there's no reason to wait until your student is in 3rd grade. Bible Heroes is an excellent language arts bridge from IEW's Primary Arts of Language to their theme-based writing lessons. Or you might decide to use it as a new entry point for the IEW program (as you finish your favorite phonics/reading program). Either way, I think you will be very pleased with what this program supplies – lessons that not only provide instruction in writing with structure and style (as the name implies), but also introductory grammar and Bible. The 27 lessons cover IEW Unit 1 (two lessons teaching Key Word Outlines), Unit 2 (seven lessons on Writing from KWOs), Unit 3 (twelve lessons on Summarizing Narrative Stories), Unit 4 (three lessons on Summarizing References), Unit 5 (three lessons on Writing From Pictures), and Unit 7 (one lesson on Creative Writing) The approach is solidly multi-sensory. Lessons include verbal and written activities as well as games for reinforcement and all source material is taken from the Bible. Although the target audience for this course is 1st-2nd grade, material can be adapted for up to 5th grade.

    The consumable Student Book provides instructions which are to be read to the student, additional gray boxes that have notes to the teacher, and space for students to complete lessons and writing assignments. Appendices include: styles helps, game pieces (cardstock), and vocabulary cards (also cardstock).

    Purchasers of this course have access to two free downloads from the IEW website. One of the downloads is the Student Resource Notebook (also available for purchase in hard copy format). It provides supplementary and reference material needed by the student. The other download is the Bible Heroes Teacher's E-book; this Teacher's Manual is a vital part of the course and its use is expected. It provides more detailed instructions for each lesson, a scope and sequence chart, ideas for discussion of each hero and virtue, answers to review questions, sample key word outlines, brainstorming pages, instruction for games and activities, copies of checklists, and copies of game boards. ~ Janice

    This book will help you to develop Christian character in your children. 13 units focus on honoring God, respecting others, telling the truth, self-control, kindness, obeying rules, forgiveness, responsibility, patience, loving everyone, apologizing, thankfulness, and sharing. Every unit holds 10-11 pages of stories and activities for that value. A poster for that trait starts each chapter, along with games, songs and a craft. Then there is a Bible lesson , such as the story of Jonah for "saying I'm sorry," and an application lesson - a real life situation story in which fictional children learn the lesson. A few activities are included for each lesson, such as following directions, puzzles, crosswords, and other practical, original exercises. Every unit ends with a "My Contract" page, where kids can decide to sign a contract to try and do better in that area. Although you can use this with just one child, I think it would also work well for a Sunday school class or group of children, as it is reproducible and several of the activities and games utilize "teamwork." ~ Stephanie

    In typical, fascinating Usborne style, this updated volume takes readers on a whirlwind tour of 10,000 years of history, from the first farmers to the fall of the Roman Empire. Unlike many other books that focus on this time period, the focus is not only on the Greeks and Romans, but early civilizations from around the world are also represented, including the Hittites, Canaanites, the Hebrew kingdoms, Assyrians, Persians, the early Chinese, early Arab kingdoms, early North Americans, the people of ancient Peru, the Olmecs, the Celts, early African kingdoms, and many more. The focus is more on daily life than events of the time, and examples of housing, architecture, art, weapons, tombs, agriculture, and more are represented for each time period. Visual types will enjoy the cut-away views of structures so they can "see inside" houses and tombs of each civilization. A map and a list of important dates are also included for each civilization. Most pages also include a link to check out a related website that gives readers an opportunity to do things like hear how a Hittite would have said "hello" or play a game of Senet. An excellent resource for any study of ancient history. 96 pgs, pb. – Jess

    Learning new things is easier for young students when tied in to a common theme. That's why unit studies are so popular and successful. So what about Galloping the Globe? It's a unit study centered around geography. It encourages a detailed look at a selection of countries from the six populated continents as well as the North and South Poles and Christmas around the world. Using the countries being studied geographically as the basic platform, the authors have included ideas and references, projects and activities for integrating Bible, people/history, science, literature, vocabulary, internet sources, maps & flags, cooking, music/art, games, puzzles, and crafts into the curriculum. An aspect to this unit study which is similar to the Trail Guide to… series is the student notebook approach, where the child will actually produce a notebook full of art projects, reports, biographies, geographic dictionary pages, and much more. This is intended to be something they can show to other people, reinforcing and reviewing what they have learned as they explain various facts to friends and family. This is a fairly flexible course, with a full study of every topic listed taking between two and three years to complete. You can also pick and choose projects to simply make this a year long course. While geography is the main focus of this unit study, it does a good job of including the resources needed to study the other subjects, too. Answers are included and the consumable work pages are reproducible (and are also now found on the included CD-ROM in PDF format, which makes it even easier to use with multiple children). There are several recommended resources which are used multiple times throughout the course. If you are interested in purchasing these, please see below. Items without prices are those that we do not currently carry. The resource list has been recently revised to accommodate for items that were going out of print, and several new resources have been added. This is the newest version, revised in 2010 with a CD-ROM of printable forms, activity sheets, maps and flags. CD is Win/Mac compatible; requires Adobe Reader (a free download). 266 pgs, pb. ~ Zach

    Learning scripture has never been more fun! This simple game for 2 or more players/teams allows children (and parents!) to show their knowledge of scripture. After placing the stack of cards upside down, the first player decides if they want to answer an easy or hard question. The other player then reads the verse with missing words and awaits the answer. Example of questions: Easy, "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his _____(Psalm 19:1)" Hard: "But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, _________ (Galatians 5:22-23)." Answers are provided, although keeping your Bible handy to check answers would reinforce scripture memory. An excellent way to reinforce Scripture learning for homeschool or Sunday School classrooms. Contains 50 glossary, color-coded cards, containing 2 Scripture verses from the NIV (1984 ed.) and instructions. ~ Deanne

    Ephesians 6:13-18 tells us that we must put on the "full armor of God". Reading this scripture passage to your children or having them memorize the verses is great, but having them actually suit up in realistic armor as you go through the commands in each verse will really help the message hit home. This silver and red multi-piece play set includes: Helmet of Salvation, Breastplate of Righteousness, Belt of Truth, Spirit-of-the-Word Sword, Shield of Faith, and shin guards (just to complete the look). Everything is made out of sturdy, safe plastic and the sword's tip is blunt. Boys and girls alike will be thrilled to put on the "full armor of God" and use the character-building lessons learned in the passage in their own lives! – elise

     The teacher manual is now a 3-ring binder that includes the content of the former teacher cd-rom. The teacher binder is split between an introduction to the course and lesson plans. The introduction describes the advantages of Bible survey, the course purpose, methods used, teaching tips, lesson objectives, one- and two-year lesson schedule (70 lessons), and a memory verse program. Lessons include teaching tips and suggestions for discussion topics, activities, games, projects, small-format student pages with answers, and questions for enhancing lessons. Some lesson suggestions are for groups or classrooms only, but most will work well in a homeschool setting. In the back are reproducible tests and answers - twelve unit tests and two semester exams. Some of the information found in the teacher manual isn’t found in the student book, but may be included on tests. Test questions may be short answer, multiple-choice, true-false, matching, and short essays.
