    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

    When you're homeschooling it makes sense to study nutrition as a family, right? After all, you probably are all preparing and eating the same meals, and meal planning and shopping may even be cooperative efforts (if not, Mom is probably overworked!). Nutrition 101: Choose Life! was written for homeschooling families by a team of four moms (including two homeschool moms) to educate families about the relationship between our bodies and the food we eat. It's a unique book in that it is part textbook, part reference, and part cookbook. It's also a beautiful book, with glossy, full-color pages and good quality illustrations and photos. Finally, it's also biblically-based with plentiful Scripture references (KJV version) and a constant reminder that we are charged with maintaining the incredible body systems that God endowed us with. The course is divided into six main units, covering the major body systems: the brain and nervous system; digestive system; respiratory system and the senses; muscular and skeletal systems; cardiovascular and immune system; and the endocrine system and emotions. Units are further

    divided into four chapters, each designed to be completed in about a week. The authors provide a suggested daily schedule; however, you can easily adapt this to fit your needs. Each body system studied ties into a study of a particular nutrient or nutrients that you are encouraged to work into your diet, and to this end, quite a few healthy, whole-food recipes are included. The end of the book is also literally packed with a huge assortment of appendices (including lots of helpful charts!) and a thorough answer key for the activities. Each chapter includes text for reading, discussion questions, activity suggestions for elementary and secondary students, additional resources for further exploration, a "power recipe" and related activities. Typically, you'll first read about a body system, learn its function and all of the major parts, then continue on to learn about common health issues related to that body system and their causes. This is usually followed up by a closer look at a particular nutrient or group of nutrients that is beneficial to that particular body system.

    The "Power Recipe" (and associated list of activities) for each chapter is usually related to one of the featured beneficial nutrients. For instance, Unit 3, Chapter 4 is on the eyes. The first part of the chapter examines the parts of the eye and how the eye works. Then you'll read about eye sight issues including pink eye, sties, cataracts, glaucoma, presbyopia and age-related macular degeneration. Next you examine nutrients that help maintain eye health including antioxidants, beta-carotene (to be converted to Vitamin A), lycopene, anthocyanosides, DHA, lutein, zeaxanthin and others. Several foods that have an adverse effect on eyesight, including trans fatty acids and processed foods are also discussed here. Discussion questions include how to protect your eyes, what foods are bad for your eyes, and applying what you've read about the eye to a particular Scripture. The activities are hands on and include spending time blindfolded (elementary level), finding a percentage of family members that wear glasses or contact lenses (elementary), explaining the difference between an ophthalmologist and optometrist (secondary) and discussion other meanings of vision (secondary). The "Power Recipe" focuses on carrots as an ingredient for a fresh carrot juice smoothie, and several carrot and juicing activity suggestions round out the recipe activities.

    The format of this course makes it extremely easy to use as a family. You can assign everyone to read (or read aloud) the text, and then get back together for the discussion questions. Discussion questions tend to be fairly easy if you've read or heard the chapter, so everyone would be able to participate here, maybe even over dinner! Depending on the ages of your students and the time allotted, you will probably want to pick and choose activities to assign. The featured "Power Recipe" would be easy to incorporate into a meal and the related activities may naturally fit into meal preparation.

    While this course is packed with excellent information, recipes and activities, there are a few items I should note. First of all, for all of the anatomical information and vocabulary covered, there are no tests or worksheets to reinforce the reading. The focus of the course is really to educate families and encourage them to change their eating habits, not provide easily graded assessments! However, this would be fairly easy to supplement if desired. The recipes and foods you are encouraged to try are healthy whole foods with low to no sugar, whole grains and possibly some ingredients you haven't met before. If you've never explored your local health food store, you'll find quite a few reasons to visit it now! You'll also find that there are some pretty strong opinions presented here, for example, when discussing toxins found in household cleaners and personal care products, or when examining specific nutrients or supplements-including extensive recommendations for Young Living Essential Oils. You will likely come across something here that you may disagree with, based on your own beliefs, or at least something that will make you stop and think (or perhaps do some further research on). Lastly, I did notice a couple of typos in perusing this resource, which was disappointing in such an otherwise appealing book. Whether you are looking for a nutrition course or trying to educate yourself or your family on why you should eat healthier foods, this is definitely a resource to consider. It's one that you'll want to leave on the shelf long after you've "finished" the course, as you'll be referring to it again and again! 448 pgs, pb. Jess/Deanne

    V.M. Hillyer, the first headmaster of Calvert School, spent many of his school years studying only American history. Believing that studying world history would broaden children’s horizons and give them a better understanding of the world and history in general, he set about to write an understandable and comprehensive world history children could enjoy. A Child’s History of the World functions to familiarize young children with some of the countless historical events and people of significance while reading like a good story. While many of the topics touched upon may not be the most important in overall world history, they are nevertheless significant because they can be understood by a child. The subjects are covered in chronological order, from the beginning of the world through the end of the Cold War. This gives the child a linear view of world history that allows details to be filled in later. The softcover text is 432 pages in length, and is written to pique interest by asking questions throughout the text. Black and white illustrations are interspersed with the textual information to enhance the content. This book is a resource for the History Odyssey level 1 courses, and is written from a different perspective. Although references are made to God and Jesus, the first four chapters talk about how things started and cave men. His suggestion that the earth began as a spark that was thrown from the sun, cooled to a cinder and became the earth as we know it is new for me. Chapter 5 is titled “Real History Begins,” so if you’re not interested in his version of how the earth began you can begin at chapter 5 and really not miss anything of historical value.~ Donna

    Eight lessons help kids understand what it means to be salt & light to the world and encourage them to develop a Christlike servant attitude. 262 pgs, hc.

    I Peter 3:15 says "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have," and this book offers the information you need to prepare to give those answers. This hefty 400+ page book will prepare believers to defend their faith and offers solid research and scientific fact for those who are skeptics, from the perspective of two gentlemen who were atheists and came to Christ through evidence.

    This text explores the meaning of truth and the truth of religion through evidence that supports Bible content in the areas of origins, miracles and signs of God, testimony to Jesus' life, inspiration of the Word of God, and more. The curriculum guide follows the text chapter by chapter and is designed to help students remember and understand the content presented in the text. This guide is published by Apologia and co-authored by Frank Turek & Chuck Winter. Frank is also one of the authors of the text, so the two books work together flawlessly for a complete one-year study of worldview and apologetics. The curriculum guide presents supplemental material, study questions, and activities for discussion, writing, and reflection. There is no answer key for the guide, but the author suggests that most answers can be found easily in the text, and sometimes page numbers are given to help you find them. Each lesson begins with pages to read from the text, important vocabulary with space to write their definitions, and four sections titled hook, book, look, and took. Hook is designed to get your attention and make you think; Book takes you deeper into the topic covered in the chapter; Look allows opportunities for the student to research assignments or other suggested activities; and Took summarizes the information and helps you apply it. A DVD series has been developed which features Frank Turek and enhances the content of the course, but it isn't required to complete the course.

    This course is easy to read and presents arguments for Christianity in a truly logical fashion. Humorous anecdotes are presented to reinforce some topics, and biographical information of some very famous scientists dot the landscape of this text and curriculum. Even if you don't want to use this as a high school course/elective, the text is an interesting read for anyone who has questions or wants to know how to defend their faith.

    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.

    Open up this very kid-friendly introduction to characters from Greek, Roman, Norse and Egyptian mythology. The illustrations are simple and quirky (not scary) and the language is a hoot! Each section is written in the “voice” of the particular god or goddess, each one getting a page or two. The book also clearly states who is connected to whom and how so, something I always found hard to remember about mythology. This is meant to be read by the student first hand and although officially designated for middle-schoolers, I think a 3rd or 4th grader could read it just fine. A glossary in the back will help with vocabulary words and there is a small folded poster in the back. If you have the other Basher books, you will definitely want this one for your reading collection. 7" x 7”, 128 pp, sc. ~ Sara
