Category Description for Progeny Press Study Guides & Books:

The best way to describe these wonderful books is "literature and Bible study rolled into one." Truly from a Christian perspective, these classic and award-winning books are examined in the light of God's Word and a Biblical worldview. The author sent us several review copies and they are wonderful!

Each guide includes:

- a concise synopsis of the book

- information about the book's author

- background information pertinent to the story

- suggestions for activities relating to the subject matter

- introduction of literary terms

- vocabulary exercises for each section of reading

- comprehension, analysis, and application questions for each section of reading with discussion of related Biblical themes

- a complete answer key and suggestions for further reading

Their brochure states "Our goal is to teach students of all ages to examine what they read, Christian or secular, classic or contemporary, and value the truth it contains as measured against the Bible." A worthy goal indeed! If you want to study great literature from a Christian perspective, here's your answer! If in doubt, try just one - we're sure you'll be back for more!

Progeny Press guides are available in two formats: softcover staplebound booklets and CD-ROMs. The CD-ROMs originally featured printable .pdf files, but Progeny Press is now transitioning these to interactive .pdf files. Inspired by a tax software, these files are able to be used by the student on the computer, or printed out. Questions in the files have text boxes to type in or buttons to select, so you won't have to print worksheet pages if you don't want to. Plus, users can grade their answers and leave notes as well! Upper Elementary through High School CD guides are now interactive, while Lower elementary

We have a son who struggles with lying It's been an issue for a few years We have talked about it prayed about it read stories that teach against lying(like "The Boy Who Cried Wolf") and praised him when he tells the truth Sometimes he will go a long while on the right track and then start lying again In the book "Shiloh" the main character Marty tells a lie and it leads to many more lies As we saw Marty dig himself into a deeper and deeper hole with his lies I seized the opportunity to have some great conversations with my son Even though Marty was doing it for a good cause (to protect an abused dog) his relationships with others become broken and he can't really relax and be happy because of all the lies and secrets Marty is so relieved when his mother finally discovers his secret! The book gets pretty intense when the dog gets hurt and the rightful owner finds out and demands his dog back Everything ends well though Marty learns how damaging lies can be and how wonderfully freeing the truth is There is also a great contrast between Marty�s father who upholds the truth and the dog abuser who is a habitual liar The book makes it clear that lies are bad though this is shown through experiences rather than stated out-rightly This was helpful because it didn't become preachy and condemning to my son it just gave him a lot to think about I'm so glad to get my son thinking about lying on a deeper level! Though it is suggested for grades 3-5 as a read aloud it sure gave my first grader a lot to chew on
