God's Great Covenant TOS Crew Review 2012

Pin It Now!

  Bible Study is the first subject we start with every morning, even on the weekends, I am always looking for help in teaching my kids about the Bible and the stories it holds within it's pages. The TOS Crew was given the opportunity to review God's Great Covenant from Classical Academic Press. This curriculum is geared to children grades 4th and up.

   In God’s Great Covenant, New Testament 1: A Bible Course for Children, students will follow the story of Jesus, the Messiah and King, as He is born and fulfills all God’s promises. But Jesus does not arrive as people expected. The people were looking for a mighty warrior to deliver them from the oppressive Roman government. Instead, He came as the suffering Savior, who would die as the sacrifice for sin and death. He was building a kingdom that was not of this world—it was the kingdom of God. He is the Son of Man, God’s Servant, the Messiah, and the Son of God. Each of the four units in this text emphasizes one of these names of Jesus. God’s Great Covenant, New Testament 1 teaches the Gospels to students in fourth grade and up, using stories, worksheets, memory verses, devotional guides, quizzes, and a little boy named Simon. In the introductions to the text, students will also learn about the historical, cultural, and geographical setting of the New Testament. This book is a most comprehensive and heartfelt study of the Gospels, and many parents and teachers will find themselves learning along with their students.

   God's Great Covenant Bible curriculum comes to you as a consumable student text and workbook, filled with pages that cover 4 units, with each unit covering 36 chapters. The chapters includes a Memory page, Story time, Review Worksheets, and a Quiz. Each chapter's end brings forth a Memory Passage section, Worksheets, Devotional Guide and final story to be used as a review.

    The Workbook is set up to work on a chapter a week and continue on until you complete the Unit and then move onto the next Unit and move forward with it's chapters. The Student guide has a companion Teacher's guide that is similar to the student one, except it has answer keys and places to jot down your own thoughts and notes to help with comprehension and teaching.

You can also purchase an MP3 download of an audio selection that includes the  recording of the Story Time section for each chapter read by Christopher Perrin. This audio download is over 3 hours in length and can be burned to a CD so that you can take it wherever you roam for your listening pleasure. We used the audio files in our car so when we were out doing errands and traveling on the way to camp we could listen to them. The boys enjoyed this aspect of the curriculum, we often listen to audio files like Adventures In Odyssey so this was a welcome addition to the course.
  The student workbook sells for $26.95 and the Teacher's version is available for $29.95 and don't forget the audio file download which can be purchased for $9.95. You may also choose to purchase the complete bundle for $56.95. This bundle includes everything you need for a successful study of the New Testament.  Classical Academic Press has also published God’s Great Covenant Old Testament 1 and 2 and God’s Great Covenant Old Testament Timeline and Map Set to help you teach the Bible to your children.
  You can preview a sample lesson while shopping on their website, sample views are a great way to guide you in making the right decisions for your family. This aides in choosing which volumes would be best for what you are currently studying and also help in making purchases for the future.
