"A Young Historian's Introduction to Worldview might well be the most practical and creative tool for teaching the concept of worldview to students in grades 5 through 8.... I particularly like the discovery approach used to lead students into worldview concepts. By raising questions and working through activities, students are led to explore their own beliefs and recognize the important questions they need to ponder."-- Cathy Duffy, Author of "100 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum", www.cathyduffyreviews.com http://www.cathyduffyreviews.com/worldview/young-historians-introduction.htm
"Some Christian families, aware of the importance of understanding their faith as a total worldview, rush to teach their childrenworldview analysis before their children are ready for such abstract concepts. Fortunately, Marcia Brim knows how foundational sound theology is for worldview analysis, and what's more she recognizes the power of story. In this wonderful curriculum, she weds theology to story to prepare middle school students to launch into deep waters of worldview analysis. And what a preparation it is! Homeschool families will benefit greatly fromChristian Theology and Ancient Polytheism." --Jeff Baldwin, Worldview Academy, TheGreatBooks.com
"I'm very impressed by the study. This would be a great compliment to the worldview classes that our pastor teaches at our homeschool academy."- MC
