    Can you please give more information regarding your religious views? Do you have a statement of faith type thing? I want to be sure we agree on the major theological points before I purchase?

    Is there a way to get some sample lessons so we can look over before committing to using it?

    What age is the Year 1 for? I’d like to use it but can’t figure out the demographic (referring to Pete Emma’s telling gods story)

    Great … but

    DeeAnne Oldham

    The good and not so good (for OUR family):
    This is what I was looking for. It has a great flow and order for teaching. I love the set up of these lesson, but we use them daily, not weekly. Even giving elaboration to the lessons, I have no idea how we could possibly stretch it out to a one week lesson. At this rate, we will be done with the whole series within the year (1st grade.) For example, the first lesson is 2 scriptures. Reading the same two scriptures everyday is boring to the kids. I like how the author gives the passage (we read it directly from the Bible)— then he gives a comparative story for the kids to get a visual. Due to the fact that the story is so well written, it really doesn’t need to be revisited all week, especially for elementary age kids… maybe preschool? There are activities available. I don’t love them, but with some being coloring pages, etc., it just isn’t something that you could expand all week and keep the kids engaged. I would recommend using it as a devotional… because it is pretty short and sweet. It is perfect for that purpose! The author IS great!

    Caution!

    Kirsten

    I would like to strongly caution anyone who is interested in this book and curriculum. I almost instinctively bought this just based on the fact that it’s from The Well-Trained Mind. Thankfully, I (at the last minute) decided to research the author’s beliefs. Based on the many things I read from sources that I respect, I now personally view Peter Enns as a heretic, which I do not say casually. Just to give an example of his beliefs that I don’t agree with, Peter Enns, who is a theological liberal, denies the inerrancy of the Bible. So I certainly wouldn’t want him to teach my children hermeneutics. I just wanted to warn anyone who might also be tempted to trust blindly.
