TOS Review: God’s GREAT Covenant ~ New Testament 1

PhotobucketWe were first introduced to Classical Academic Press last year when we reviewed their Latin Primer A.  Well, they have done it again and produced an awesome product that we love!  We have had the pleasure of reviewing God's Great Covenant - New Testament 1 which is for grades 4 and up.  I actually used this bible curriculum with my 5th and 3rd graders, my K’er listening in.

Here is an excerpt from the website:

 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.

Broken down into 36 weekly chapters and further divided into 4 themed units this curriculum has it all.  Each chapter includes memory work, key facts charts, and fulfillment of prophecy section.”Think About It” questions do just that. They encourage your children and yourself included to really consider and relate to how God fits into our lives.  If you need more there is also a worksheet and a quiz to test your knowledge further. Want to check it out for yourself? There is also an audio download available which contains a recording of the Story Time section for each chapter read by Christopher Perrin. With  over 3 hours  of audio files in a mp3 format so you can burn to a disk or listen on your ipod/phone/touch and listen anywhere you go! Click here and you can preview the first 32 pages of the book, you will not be disappointed!
