    At just about any home school convention in the 1980’s or 1990’s, you would be able to attend a workshop or main session on creation vs. evolution, and more specifically, why young earth creation (the universe being something less than 10,000 years old) was the correct belief. The home school market has been dominated by young earth speakers and books. While there is evidence to support this view, a young earth is not the only possibility for a created universe. Indeed, in centuries gone by, theologians from the Christian church tended to believe in old earth creationism. This book gives us a broad overview of some of the aspects of the debate and looks at evidence presented by various factions during different eras, with their relative strengths and weaknesses. Not even the co-authors agree. Mark Rooker is a young-earth creationist, while Kenneth Keathley leans toward old earth creationism.

    Part of the debate hinges on looking at scientific evidence in light of biblical and religious understanding. The first few chapters of the book are devoted to summarizing the primary beliefs and theories that are held, both scientific and religious, ancient and modern, Christian and non-Christian. I liked a couple of points that the authors made here. In the Genesis account of creation, God states several times that His creation “was good,” with the summary statement in Gen. 1:31 of “it was very good.” Compare this to Eastern religions that consider the physical world to be an illusion, or that the physical world is something to avoid or escape from. The authors also make the point that whether a person comes down on the side of creation or evolution depends on his view of design vs. age; if one believes that the universe is well-designed, he tends to believe in creation, but if one believes that the universe is very old, he tends to believe in evolution.

    While the first part of the book lays out the basic beliefs, the rest of the book is divided into five parts that get into more specific issues. Part 2 delves more deeply into the creation account in Genesis 1 & 2. Part 3 discusses possible meanings of the days of creation. With that background, Part 4 delves into questions about the age of the earth and evidences for them. Next comes a section on the Fall and the Flood. The last section deals with evolution and intelligent design.

    I must say that parts of the book presented evidence that conflicted with my point of view. I believe this will be true no matter what your point of view may be, since the goal of the authors is to discuss the evidence for the various theories, not to promote any specific one. I applaud their ability to openly discuss evidence and to be honest about the fact that not all evidence supports any one theory. This reminded me of a presentation I attended some years ago by a woman who is an astrophysicist working for NASA on the Hubble Telescope project. She said of evolution/old earth creationism/new earth creationism debate that at one time or another, she had personally been in all three camps. This book will broaden your horizons to the scope of the debate and give you a good handle on its main ideas. 430 pgs, sc. ~ Bob

    Maybe the term "relationship homeschooling" is new to you or maybe you have heard it tossed about on the internet, but just don't have a good sense of what it means and how it may affect your homeschooling or parenting journey. Before you read any further, I must share honestly, that this review may be biased. I say this from the heart as a veteran homeschool mom, whose homeschool journey was radically changed by the precepts within these pages. I stumbled upon a series of homeschool encouragement seminars in our area presented by the author, and my heart was greatly encouraged. But more than that, I went home a changed Momma. No longer focused on the externals, I began to look at the heart of my children.

    Now that is out in the open, let me step back and try to share why I feel this book should be in the hands of every homeschool mom. Is it because of the earth-shattering message or great writing style? No. Is it because of the cautions she presents about being Berean's in today's homeschooling and Evangelical Christian culture? No. While these are all valuable to the reader, the significance of this book is found in the essence of "One Anothering." What is "one anothering," you ask? One Anothering is the profoundly simple concept that as parents, we view our children as brothers and sisters in the Lord and treat them with the respect and dignity set forth in the New Testament "One Another" verses: love one another, forgive one another, encourage one another and so forth. In this book Karen weaves together scripture and stories of her personal journey in parenting and homeschooling along with questions for introspection and discussion, all designed to leave you flooded with a sense of relief that you can succeed at homeschooling with the joy God intends for us. Excellent for individual or a small group study. Scripture from various versions. 288 pgs, sc. ~Deanne

    If I could have only one science resource in our school, this would be it. Moody Press has taken the creme de la creme from its science films in producing this excellent set. Each hour-long DVD features exceptional photography and intriguing subject matter, all to display the wisdom and power of our Creator. Part 1 explores the life support system designed into planet earth. Part 2 provides fascinating facts from the animal kingdom. Part 3 focuses on the marvelous design of the human body. (The DVDs in this set are the same as three of the DVDs found in the larger set, #035071, listed below.) Parts of this series have held visiting neighbor kids in rapt attention. Mark (then age 8), our science guy, particularly liked segments showing a lizard running on 2 legs, seed pods that "explode," and seeds that "walk." After viewing this set, you will see why "God saw that it was good."

    That proverbial talk about the “birds and the bees.” You know you need to do it. Teaching your children about God’s plan for sex and all the male/female interaction that leads up to it is part of what it means to bring up a child in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. And you want to do it – sort of. It’s just that it’s so very uncomfortable – and you don’t know what to say – and there might be questions asked that make you ashamed or guilty. . .  Dennis and Barbara Rainey (parents of six) of Family Life Ministries know you need “a plan” and they’ve provided a lovely one – a getaway weekend kit complete with instructions for you, guidelines for what to do, excellent speakers to get the difficult words out in the open by offering interesting audio sessions, an engaging format, a solid study of Biblical values, and enjoyable scripture songs.

      The goal of this program is to encourage and empower parents to discuss the difficult topics of intimacy, sexual behavior, and personal feelings that are facing their children as they enter the preteen years. To give parents the tools they need to both challenge their sons and daughters as they enter the pathway to Christian adulthood as well as provide the foundation for future discussions and sharing. To build a mentoring relationship with your children that continues past the weekend and into all the years leading up to adulthood.

      Preteen? Isn’t that jumping the gun a bit for the birds and the bees? Not in today’s culture. It’s literally everywhere around us – and now in ways unimagined by all previous generations. This program is designed to set the stage for a close parent/child relationship as the child moves into this period. Topics are handled biblically, carefully, and tastefully. Some topics are left optional for the parent.

      A weekend getaway. That’s the general setting. One child – with the parent all to himself (boys with fathers; girls with mothers) – doing an activity of his choice that he loves to do and spending time listening to “talks” and working through study material together. It’s a wonderful affirmation that the love of the parent can transcend the upcoming changes that the child will be experiencing.

      There are five audio sessions and one optional session: 1) the adolescent experience, 2) how to handle peer pressure, 3) changes that are ahead (God’s design for sex), 4) purity (protecting sexual innocence), and 5) dating (properly engaging with the opposite sex). The optional session covers really delicate issues (masturbation, pornography, and same-sex attraction) and can be inserted after the fourth session and before the fifth if the parent chooses,

      The Getaway Kit provides the necessary framework: a tour guide for the parent, travel journal for the preteen including 25 follow-up devotions, CDs containing 5 sessions, scripture memory songs and downloadable MP3s of all sessions.

      The Tour Guide is for the parent – basically a leader’s guide for this very focused Bible study. This little manual includes sections on planning the getaway, an itinerary for the weekend, a suggested schedule, preparation checklists (and needed supplies), guidelines for writing a note to your son/daughter, and very specific suggestions for praying for your son/daughter. Also included is a page-for-page reproduction of the Travel Journal (accent color rather than full color) so you can work through it with your son/daughter.

      The Travel Journal is for your son/daughter and is designed as a companion for the experiences of the weekend. With a travel theme and an engaging appearance, it provides a place to write notes (from the talks), thoughts, and answers to questions as well as the guidelines for godly Christian living provided by this study material. There are 25 follow-up devotions that continue with a similar theme and help strengthen the biblical core of the young adult’s understanding of the various issues. This is a nicely done keepsake book with a hardcover, full-color graphics, and an elastic strap for place-keeping.

      The CD Set provides the core material for the heart of the weekend and the program. Eight CDs provide the weekend talk sessions. These sessions feature scripture memory songs, dramatic vignettes, humorous features, real-life stories from teens and adults, and lots of teaching from parents and experts that have “been there, done that.” Songs are CCM-type of music with understandable lyrics, singable melodies, and full instrumentation backup.

      Having “that” talk with your children may never be entirely comfortable, but this kit gives you a plan; the certainty of godly, biblical content; and the promise of enjoyable memories.

    All in one small 4" x 6" book, you will find 101 scientific facts found in scripture. The format of this book is very straightforward: each fact is numbered 1 through 101, and a short paragraph gives an explanation on the topic which includes a passage from supporting scripture. Paragraphs range in length from 3 to 20 lines. Topics range from origin of the universe to dinosaurs to love to the shape of the earth – "The earth is a sphere (Isaiah 40:22). At a time when many thought the earth was flat, the Bible told us that the earth is spherical." This tiny book concludes with an explanation of the Bible being the inspired Word of God and what one needs to do to be saved. 101 Scientific Facts & Foreknowledge would be great to carry in your pocket or purse for quick reference or give as a witnessing tool. 31 pgs.

    I am excited that Ray and Charlene Notgrass have written this excellent, one year world history course! While many families enjoy a chronological, multi-year approach to world history, others prefer to study history in a more traditional manner-one year at a time. Written in the engaging narrative ‘voice’ that has made the Notgrass courses beloved by many homeschool families, this new World History begins at the very foundation of our Christian foundation- Adam and journeys to the end of the 20th century, with a final unit on our interconnected world (from the thrill of world-wide sporting events to turmoil in the Middle East).

    Containing 30 units, with 5 lessons per unit, this course will take students one year to complete. It is anticipated that daily lessons will take 45-90 minutes per day, although it is naturally flexible for homeschool families to set their own pace. While the target grade range is 5 through 8, families with younger children will find this a perfect ‘read aloud’ curriculum, as the text has been clearly and engagingly written.

    Let me give a bit of an example of how the unit lessons are laid out. At the start of each unit, there is a brief introduction to the lessons including the recommended literature selection to accompany the reading. Each weekly unit has one lesson from each of five categories: Our World Story (major events in history); God’s Wonders (impact of the world’s created wonders on history and culture); World Landmarks; World Biography of some of history’s most influential personalities and Daily Life (an inside view of everyday life). Daily lessons are richly illustrated with graphics and photographs, including maps of historic places and regions. At the conclusion of each lesson (approximately 5-8 pages), parents and children will select assignments to complete from a list of 5-7 assignments. Older students may be able to complete all the activities-but again- there is built-in flexibility for your individual family’s needs. Assignments include readings from the Our Creative World book (collection of original documents); Map Book assignments; Timeline Book assignments; assignments from the Student Workbook and Lesson Review Book (optional resources), as well as language arts assignments covering vocabulary, creative writing, literature selections. Thinking Biblically assignments are also included with most lessons and are designed to engage students in applying Scripture to history and life. Each unit also provides a suggested weekly family activity-projects vary and include arts and crafts, recipes and games. Materials are easily found for the projects and are designed to bring the family together to enjoy time together building memories.

    Curriculum package contains From Adam to Us Part 1 & 2; Our Creative World, Map Book, Timeline Book and the Answer Key to end of the lessons questions as well as the activities and tests in the Student Workbook and the questions and tests in the Lesson Review. Although it is possible to share the Map and Timeline books, they are available separately, allowing each child to have their own copy. I suspect that most children will be eager to create their own map and timeline.

    If you would like to add more supplemental instruction or review, consider the Student Workbook (5th-6th grade) or the Lesson Review (7th-8th grades). Both include additional assignments that correspond to the daily lesson as well as unit tests and questions related to the literature selections. Most literature based questions are recall based. However, there are a smattering of higher level thinking questions.

    Middle school children will be enthralled as they view world history through the lens of a Creator God who is alive and active, from the very foundation of our world through present day. ~ Deanne

    From Eratosthenes to Wernher von Braun, this volume looks at the exploration of our planet. The high-interest vignettes and tales of discovery include references to God and faith, where applicable. I hadn't realized before reading this book that rocket scientist Wernher von Braun was also a committed Christian. I also understand a little better now why, despite the fact that Eratosthenes virtually proved the Earth was a sphere, people clung to the belief that the Earth was flat.
