Excellent!!!
This is exactly what I was looking for our curriculum! Not preachy, no religion. This reads like a story and promotes great easy conversation with my kids. They enjoy it and it shares truth in such a gentle obvious way. 10 stars!!!

Love this book
My children learned so much from this book. It was very understandable for both of them they are in 2nd and 3rd grade. I would recommend this book!

Great for the whole family
My kids ask me when we get to do Bible study because they all enjoy "Who Is God?" so much. There are a variety of different activities to mix things up from day to day, and we can pick and choose what extras we do. I recommend this Bible study to anyone wanting to develop and grow their Biblical worldview.

We read the Bible daily but my eleven-year-old son still had questions about God He is finding these answers in Apologia's "Who is God?" As we are studying my child is learning to build his own "house of truth" based on these questions:Where am I building my life?How can I know what's true?What is God like?Who are the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit?If God created the world why isn't it perfect?Why did God create me?Will God meet all my needs?Why does sin keep me from knowing God?Is Jesus the only way to God?For those who want to learn a Biblical worldview about God and truth this is a worthwhile study

We began using the �Who Is God?� study last school year and would definitely say that it was the best find of our year! My children are currently 13 11 9 and 6 and we have all equally enjoyed our Bible study time using this curriculum Right off in Lesson 1 my kids were challenged to really think about whether or not they have built their lives on the rock and we had a fun time putting to memory the �Seven Ways To Build On The Rock� which were taught in the lesson I bet I could still go around the table and have the kids recite these seven ways without any difficulty even though we learned that eight months ago! Each lesson includes a short story (which builds with each lesson using the same characters and which we have all found to be very entertaining) vocabulary words inscription memorization suggestions prayer a worldview study and an illustration of the house of truth that you are building as you continue learning throughout this series The �House of Truth� is a house built on the truths of the Bible The truths that are learned in each lesson are displayed on the foundation walls and roof of the House of Truth The Foundation is �Knowing Loving and Obeying God My Rock� and each Biblical Truth (such as #1 �God always tells me what is right and true�) is laid onto this foundation We�ve tried to be creative in recording the information that we�ve learned in each of the lessons ~ my kids have typed up some of the prayers found at the end of each of the lessons to place in their notebooks they have written out some of the �Hide It In Your Heart� verses for handwriting/copywork we�ve completed some of the curriculum�s journal suggestions they have each written out definitions and quotes we once illustrated some of the lesson�s inscriptions each of the children have drawn illustrations of the �House of Truth� and each stone laid and we have sometimes typed up lists of different things we�ve learned (for example the �Nine Ways We Can Glorify God� which we learned in Lesson 7) This school year I also purchased the �Who Is God� coloring book and the kids have all enjoyed coloring pictures that coordinate with the lesson while I read aloud and then we also add these pictures to our notebooks I really have found that my very mature 13 year old daughter reaps from this study as well as my 6 year old not-as-mature-baby-of-the-family Obviously what my 13 year old walks away with is very different than her littlest sister but there really is a lot for everyone to learn from this course In fact during my last home school assessment my assessor who is also a Christian retired public school teacher stated that she was going to buy this book for herself! She stated that she had never learned how to be equipped to answer these kinds of questions herself and that neither her church nor obviously the public school system taught her to consider her worldview and how to answer questions regarding her faith So I kindly wrote down the title of this curriculum and the website for Rainbow Resource

Janet A on Dec 18, 2015
I like how the author breaks down each topic. The stories in each chapter build on each other, throughout the book. I ordered this book for our co-op class. This book would be an excellent resource for a student to work through individually, along with the workbook. But I found it to be difficult to teach out of for co-op. To me, this book was written to work through daily. The workbook compliments it wonderfully. But I would not suggest if for a once a week co-op class.

My oldest is 6. Will she get enough out of this program yet? I want something more in depth than what we used this past year.
User on Jan 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am using it with my 6, 8, and 10 year olds. It gives really good instruction and depth. The kids enjoy the stories and illustrations that go with it. We pace ourselves and do not rush through the chapters (just 10 lessons in the whole book, so meant to take time with). That is good because for the parts that are heavy on content with fewer stories/illustrations, it seems better to take smaller "bites." I have my 10 year old doing more of the suggested reading/writing with it, and the 6 year old I have doing only maybe drawing a picture to go with it or something like that. I think your daughter would get something out of it! And you could circle back around to it in a few years and it would probably be a good thing to re-do at a later time. Hope that helps! (I just asked my six year old what he thought and he said he likes it, he likes the stories in it.) :)
