REMEMBERING GOD’S AWESOME ACTS is different from traditional textbooks which only teach one subject. Although the primary focus is Bible and Ancient History, the impressive lap-book style student notebook includes a drawing course, a structured creative writing course, speech and drama. In addition, geography, anthropology, archeology and linguistics are studied. The ultimate purpose of each element is to give the student a better understanding of the Bible. The focus is not on the individual subjects, but on studying issues, playing with concepts and mastering skills while learning discernment and logic.
When studying the Tower of Babel and the dispersion of the nations, the student does a country study from each continent. This includes not only facts about a country, but also the nation’s prayer needs, major religions and availability of scriptures. Art lessons help the student to appreciate the different facial features of other peoples. And language studies (using college-level techniques) help develop an awareness of the work of missionaries.
