Make Room Monday #4 ~ Learning About God from A to Z

If you haven't heard yet, I have a lot of homeschooling stuff. Tons. I buy more each year and I get quite a bit from the Homeschool Review Crew. I don't, however buy more bookshelves each year. You can see the dilemma, right?

Since I need more room for new books, I have decided to spend the rest of the summer giving away some of the stuff that we are not using anymore. You read it right, I am offering free homeschooling curriculum. Everything I offer will be in Excellent to Like New condition.

This week I'm offering up a nice goody from the old Sonlight Core 4, Learning About God from A to Z. I bought Core 4 right after they stopped using this book. I was bummed because I was looking forward to using the book and I'd heard rave reviews about it. So I bought one from Sonlight before they ran out. Then I forgot I had it and never used it. lol One of the problems of owning so much, I guess. So now one of you can own this brand new, never been used, book.

About Learning About God from A to Z


In 26 lessons (one for each letter of the alphabet), Mary Erickson presents a hands-on introduction to theology for families that emphasized both understanding who God is and letting that knowledge inform everyday behavior. Each chapter covers one of God's attributes ('A' for almighty etc.) through puzzles, discussion questions, application, crafts and prayers. While you could use it with younger kids, Learning About God from A to Z is ideal for upper-elementary students; older kids won't get much out of it.


Erickson uses a variety of creative approaches to introduce each topic. In one lesson, kids "interview" Daniel after his experience in the lions' den; in another, they stage a play about the lives of Esther and Mordecai. She also emphasizes Bible knowledge as the foundation of genuine theological understanding. Students are instructed to "color-code" passages in their Bibles--underline or highlight them with specific colors according to the theme or doctrinal truth found in those verses.

It really is fabulous and I had a hard time deciding to let go of this one. In the end, I just had to admit that I cannot do everything even if it is totally awesome. Sigh...

This looks like an awesome resource! It is hard to say what my favorite Bible resources is just now. I have several kids devotionals that we use. I have a habit of jumping around - so we don't always complete a whole book. I just pick the parts from each one that I feel we need to work on.

asteiner18 said...

We adore veggietales and we have a few random devotionals and children's bibles but sadly I hadn't thought of sitting down the girls with child age bible related products until I got serious about homeschooling, we do not have a lot of bible curriculum yet, that is pretty much the only part I still need to build up!!

KGB That's Me said...

Leo and Christy Marez said...

Would love this book as a resource, and trying to get my child training bible together to start using as resource.

I'd say it's YouVersion.com . It's helped me read through the Bible this year using Professor Horner's 10 chapters a day approach. Bible Gateway dot com is second.

Ticia said...

Hmmm...... I'd have to say What's in the Bible.
