    Formerly titled Victor Journey Through the Bible, this is a wonderful reference to accompany your own Bible reading or family Bible studies. It covers selected (major) Bible events chronologically, providing helpful historical and cultural information about traditions, clothing, everyday objects, places, and more. For example, the Tower of Babel entry discusses its location, possible excavation sites, what the name "Babel" means in Akkadian, information about ziggurats (the most probable form of construction), and the birth of nations after the flood. Very interesting, informative and colorful, this profusely illustrated volume abounds with photographs and artistic renderings, besides maps, charts, lists, and diagrams. Although the title has changed slightly from "Victor" to "DC Cook," the interior content has not been changed. A welcome addition to your library.

    Have you ever decided that you were going to read the Bible, start to finish, only to be sidetracked because the task seemed so daunting? The Wayfinding Bible offers you alternatives to help you navigate through portions of Scripture. This Bible is the New Living Translation and offers you three different routes – flyover route, direct route, and scenic route. The flyover route is divided into 54 readings to help you get a chronological overview of the Bible. The direct route divides the readings into 215 sessions that help you get a complete perspective on the entire Bible and how it fits together (in less than a year). The scenic route is divided into 386 readings that will take you on a journey through passages that may or may not be familiar. Each route is marked with colored arrows at the top of the pages – blue for the flyover route, green for the direct route, and orange for the scenic route. Those arrows will tell the reader if they should continue reading on the next page (straight arrow), skip pages (arrow curved up), jump to a different book (dotted curved arrow), or go backward to read in a previous passage (arrow curved back).

    Along the way, readers will find written introductions for each book, historical markers that emphasize specific locations, scenic overlooks that will also help the reader understand the history and people of the Bible, and Side Trips that highlight passages on certain topics. Getting Your Bearings are found in 8 different places of the Bible to help you look back and look at where you are going next. Photos, maps, illustrations, and a timeline will help you keep on track as you travel through the Bible. An itinerary is found at the back of the Bible for each route, which allows you to keep track of your readings (stops) along the way. A fourth route is found at the very back of this Bible – "Thru-Hike." It takes you chronologically through every word of this Bible. This is the most intense of the reading schedules and you can check off as you read through your journey.

    Choose the route that fits your schedule and get familiar with the flow of the Bible. Enjoy the journey as you learn what God's Word has to offer. Read through as a family or read for personal devotion time – but get started finding your way through the Bible. p/b. ~ Donna

    The first of four units in the MFW high school program, this one is considered foundational to the rest and covers Bible, history and English and is worth 3 full-year credits (1 credit per subject). The lesson plans are designed for the students to work independently the majority of the week, with a parent-student conference and discussion of topics covered on Fridays. You will need to add math and science to the curriculum (MFW recommends Saxon Math with DIVE CDs for math and Apologia Science) and may also want to consider adding foreign language, logic or other electives. For Bible and history, students will read through the Old Testament along with Taking the Old Testament Challenge. The Old Testament Readings are also central to the ancient history study along with Notgrass Exploring World History. Students will fill in an Ancient History Timeline Book to record events from their reading. There are comprehension questions, map work and service projects as well. In English, the focus is on essay writing, particularly the argumentative essay, and students will write five of these during the year. Literature from the periods covered is also read and analyzed from a Christian perspective. The Limited Edition Package includes Lesson Plans; Ancient Literature Supplement; Ancient History Timeline Book and figures; Daniel Inductive Bible Study for Teens; Unwrapping the Pharaohs; Student Bible Atlas; Exploring World History set; What On Earth Am I Here For?; The Odyssey; The Cat of Bubastes; Bulfinch's Greek and Roman Mythology; New Answers Book; The Iliad; Encyclopedia of the Ancient World; The Tabernacle; Eric Liddell; the Epic of Gilgamesh; Taking the Old Testament Challenge and Journey Through the Bible.

    This CD-ROM by Richard Thetford contains 52 lessons on the history and geography of Bible times. The lessons are presented on more than 940 PowerPoint slides, so you'll have to have Microsoft PowerPoint (or at least PowerPoint Viewer) to be able to use them. The CD is a companion to the History and Geography of the Bible Story by Bob and Sandra Waldron. Although the lessons are based on that book, they can easily be used with any Bible or even history class curriculum. The lessons give a good summary of the history of Biblical nations and will help students learn the geography of the Bible lands. Basically, it gives a general survey of the Bible from Genesis through the close of the first century. High quality, full-color maps, charts, and photographs are included on the slides, and when students click on the screen, information pops up. Info is presented sentence by sentence so students can click at their own pace to follow the lessons. Sometimes the info is presented in outline form, with several bullets per slide. The 52 lessons are divided by geographic areas, time periods, and books of the Bible with instruction on the geography of Palestine, promises to Abraham, the conquest of Canaan, the empire of Solomon, the fall of Israel, the life of Christ, Paul's journeys, and so much more. There are reviews of some of the books of the Bible, which quickly sum up what happened and where it happened in that book. The history and geography of the Bible really comes alive through the charts, maps, and other graphics, and the concise text sections make it easy for students to focus on the key facts about a large variety of Bible stories. The very first lesson shows students (and teachers) how to get the most out of the presentations and explains why learning geography along with the history of the Bible is so important and effective. With a good summary of the entire Bible, facts on the geography of the Bible lands, colorful graphics, and an interactive computer interface, this is a great way to learn historical details about the Bible.

    This CD has been updated and is now even more useful because it now includes student questions (with answers) for every one of the 52 lessons. If students understand the material, they will be able to answer the 10-20 questions per lesson, which are provided in PDF format. Works on any operating system, as long as you have Microsoft PowerPoint or Viewer.

    This book is a visual treat for visual learners (like myself). I am a huge fan of the Rose Publishing pamphlets due to the wide variety of visually-pleasing Bible charts, maps, and time lines they offer. As a result, I was thrilled when this amazing book wound up on my desk. I had to force myself to stop looking through the pages so I could write this description! This book has 188 pages of spectacular full-color charts, maps, and time lines – many of which you can buy as individual pamphlets, but some that are not available individually.

    The content of this book can be broken up into six different categories. The first category is a section dedicated to general Bible charts. In this section there are charts that present the books of the Bible, an overview of the Old and New Testament, insight on how we got the Bible, lists of 100 well-known people and prayers, and a Christian history time line (which is really good!). Next you move into the Old Testament Charts, which provides you with an outline of creation, 100 well-known events, family trees, names of God, insight to the Ten Commandments, and wonderful charts that bring clarity to Judges, Kings, Prophets, the prophesies of Daniel, and important archaeological finds that support the Old Testament. The third section of this book gives New Testament charts. This section includes charts on the genealogy of Jesus; 100 prophesies fulfilled by Jesus; events, miracles, parables, and teachings of Jesus; information on the twelve disciples; 100 well-known events from Acts to Revelation; archaeological finds that support the New Testament; and other charts that cover well-known portions of scripture such as the Armor of God and Fruit of the Spirit. The next section contains twenty beautiful and well-labeled maps that highlight different features of the Middle East and The Holy Land, as well as showing where Jesus walked and the locations of Paul's missionary journeys. The fifth section includes colorful illustrations and diagrams of places described in the Bible, such as Noah's Ark, The Tabernacle, The Ark of the Covenant, Solomon's Temple, Herod's Temple, and a detailed diagram of Palm Sunday to Easter. Lastly, the final section provides information on Christianity, Cults, and Religions, denominations comparison, the Trinity, and a comparison of Islam and Christianity.

    This book is hardcover and has a spine, but it has a hidden spiral binding that allows you easily reproduce the pages for your classroom. This resource may seem a little pricey; however, if you bought all of these charts separately in pamphlet form, you would pay much more. Plus, you will be hard pressed to find another resource that so clearly presents the truths of the Bible in such an amazing visual format! – elise

    Linda Hobar, the author of this world history series, states in the beginning of this book, "I believe history is the story of God revealing Himself to mankind and that He did it most perfectly through the person of Jesus Christ…the "mystery" is the gospel of Jesus Christ." What a refreshing and different view from most world history curriculums! Those looking for a world history program that aligns the stories of mankind with the living story of God will truly appreciate this Bible-centered approach to the history of the world. Picking up where Volume 1 leaves off, this volume begins with the Pentecost and the first followers of Jesus (including Paul) around 29 A.D and chronologically continues through the early church and moves into the Middle Ages, covering the years through about 1456 A.D. The format of this book is very similar to that of the first volume; however, there are some small differences. Firstly, there are fewer lessons (84 as opposed to 108), but these lessons are slightly longer, offering more information on a given topic. Lessons generally take the form of real-life biographies, sharing the stories of men and women who changed the world while simultaneously showing the relationship between God and the world during that period. Another new feature is the bolding of key words to aid students in finding the information again later for activity or vocabulary purposes. As in the first book, this volume includes pretests to be given at the beginning of each week, end of the week reviews, memory card suggestions, bi-weekly quizzes, quarterly worksheets, and two semester tests. Memory cards are fact cards that students create for each lesson, capturing the main points and dates on an easy to review flashcard. The end of the week reviews continue to hold timeline and mapping exercises, providing students with helpful visuals of when important figures lived and where places studied are located. This volume also contains even more activities following each lesson than the first volume. This is simply to provide you with more choices, not to overwhelm you with feeling like you should do them all! These activities are generally categorized into younger, middle, and older student activities in order to accommodate the curriculum to a wider spread of grade levels, with the youngest comprised of many hands-on activities to help them experience history, middle activities a combination of hands-on exercises with research, and the older ideas centering on research, encouraging students to learn more and dig deeper into the people and lessons from history. The activities and memory cards, as well as the weekly and quarterly reviews and tests, are meant to ensure long-term retention of the key events and people throughout history, as opposed to the short term memory capacity we often hold history (and other subjects!) lessons in. The back of this hefty 700-page book contains the outline maps for the lessons, additional fun supplemental activities, suggestions of books and resources for further study of many of the topics, a chart of materials needed for the activities found in each lesson, and a full answer key. The fascinating journey across the continents continues as students discover who lived when and the way God worked His plan throughout this period of history. ~ Steph

    Using her well-known talent for making complex topics clear and understandable, Dr. Beechick has provided us with another valuable and exciting resource for teaching. This book is riveting! In a sharp departure from her fabulous "how to teach" books, Dr. Beechick introduces us to an almost forgotten world in a fantastic work of historical fiction - combining the actual, historical truths revealed in scripture with various other sources to create a fluid, easy-to-read "walk" through early history. We journey from creation to the departure of Abram from Ur, through the eyes of the Old Testament authors. Hopefully, Dr. Beechick will continue in this vein in future books. 176 pgs.

    We have all heard C. S. Lewis's statements of who Jesus Christ must be: a liar, lunatic, or God. But, have we stopped and thought about this statement? Who is Jesus, really? Lee Strobel, a brilliant writer and journalist, was an atheist who set out to disprove Christianity and Jesus' claims. However, after digging into the research and evidence, he made a 180-degree turn and found that everything Jesus' claimed about Himself was true. Strobel has now made his findings available to all in this exceptional book. In a three-step journey, he will take readers through the evidence, starting with evaluating Jesus' claims concerning Himself and the identity of Jesus as the foretold Messiah. Next, readers will take a look at the validity of the biographies of Christ and extra-biblical evidence for Christ's existence. Finally, readers will get an inside look into what happened during the resurrection. With the engaging graphics and easy-to-follow writing style, this book will appeal to teenagers. 115 pgs, pb. – John
