Announcing: Journey #2 in our Explorer Series for Kids
In my “Note from the Editor” in the June 2002 issue of Reason & Revelation, I announced “Journey #1” of our new Explorer Series—“Christian Evidences for Kids.” For years, parents and teachers had been urging us to provide them with a Bible class curriculum that they could use to teach Christian evidences to their third through sixth graders. We listened, and complied.
The result is our 13-lesson Explorer Series, which takes curious young minds on a fascinating journey through God’s Word and God’s world. In Journey #1, beginning with lesson one, eager children can explore essential facts that will ground them in concepts oftentimes overlooked in regular Bible class settings. They will learn about apologetics. They can examine proof for the existence of God and the inspiration of the Bible. They will find facts from science that they can use to refute the theory of evolution (including false ideas about their alleged ape-like ancestry). They will be exposed to the evidence that dinosaurs and humans lived on the Earth at the same time. They will discover eternal truths about the deity of Christ and the uniqueness of His church. And so on.
In Journey #2, the saga continues. Beginning with lesson one, kids will learn about the Genesis account of Creation. From there, they will be able to study such topics as the Bible and the age of the Earth, and how man was created in the “image and likeness of God.” The series also discusses the origin and mission of Satan, the Fall of man, the Genesis Flood, and the Tower of Babel. Studious children also will learn about the differences between the Old and New Testaments, how we got the Bible, alleged mistakes in the Bible, and how other religions differ from Christianity. The last two lessons in the series deal with the problem of evil, pain, and suffering, and the topics of faith and knowledge.
Each 8-page lesson is presented in the same format as Discovery, our popular magazine on Scripture and science for children. Every issue is printed in full color on enameled paper in an 8½x11-inch format, and includes professional artwork and illustrations, as well as activities such as puzzles, word-finds, fill-in-the-blanks, true/false questions, and mazes—all of which are designed to reinforce the teaching found within each lesson.
The series is designed so Bible school teachers have the freedom to send individual lessons home with each child, or compile all 13 lessons into a notebook that can be used in class and then given to the child for future reference at the end of the quarter. Sets containing all 13 lessons are shrink-wrapped. We recommend this new series for use in Christian schools, VBS classes, home-schooling situations, and summer camps. In keeping with our mandate to make all of our materials as affordable as possible, cost for the entire series of 13 lessons is only $10/set. Why not order a set today for each youngster in your third—sixth grade Bible class program, vacation Bible school, or summer camp enrollment?
