Product Description:

Children catch a glimpse of the courage required by some to call themselves Christians. When Kuri's father defies the traditions of his culture to serve God, Kuri is frightened. Will God keep them safe?

We personally own a lot of these books. Many of them are among our children's all-time favorites. That's saying a lot, since my children are voracious readers. There's such variety in this line - they run the gamut from biography to fantasy, but consistently enrich. It is indisputable that every book you read becomes a little part of you. Knowing this, we want to be careful not to fill our children's heads and hearts with objectionable, disturbing or useless material. Many of our customers are Christian homeschoolers, as we are. Even among this group, parents differ in the degree of restriction or criteria they apply in selecting materials they consider appropriate for their children, depending upon their particular convictions in this area. However, we feel confident that even the most convicted parent would have no qualms about this thoroughly Christian series. While books in the Light Line have a "strong Christian message," they are not "preachy." Rather, they skillfully entertain while presenting that message, with vivid characters and strong, exciting story lines. The biographies are among the best my children have read - they have been particularly stirred by With Daring Faith, the story of missionary Amy Carmichael. Series are listed first in each section, followed by single books listed alphabetically.




Category Description for BJU Press Bible Truths Curriculum:

A complete Bible curriculum at every level, with daily lesson plans, student materials, visuals, and (at some levels) accompanying music tape. All but the K4 level have a consumable student worktext. Required materials are listed first under each grade level. An asterisk (*) proceeding the item means it is optional. Complete Home School kits contain all essential materials to teach one child. Optional materials are useful to the course, but not vital. Teacher Picture Packets (grades K5-1) contain full-color 12" x 18" pictures correlated to lessons in the course.




Category Description for BJU Press Curriculum:

We are pleased to be able to distribute BJU Press curriculum to our customers. Most homeschoolers are already familiar with their materials. For those who are not, BJU is a Christian university located in South Carolina that produces and markets curriculum materials for Christian schools as well as home schools. Probably the most homeschool-friendly full-curriculum supplier, they have not only accommodated homeschoolers, but have continually worked to make their materials better suited to the homeschooling family. Many of their courses now contain manuals written specifically for the home school setting, and visuals and supplemental materials have been "pared down" from the bulkier visuals still used in classrooms. While other curriculum suppliers initially frowned on distributing teacher materials to homeschoolers, and provided only expensive classroom versions, Bob Jones quickly embraced homeschoolers, readily allowing them access to teacher's editions and, eventually, producing less expensive spiral-bound or paperbound versions to save money for homeschooling families. Their materials are all top quality. They are professionally prepared, educationally sound, and Biblically-based. Used in Christian school classrooms across the country for years and constantly improved, they are courses you can trust in your homeschool as well. We have long been fans of Bob Jones curriculum materials, having used courses in almost every subject area for one child or another through the years. In our particular situation (seven children, Mom and Dad sharing in teaching as well as in running Rainbow Resource Center), a well-constructed, teacher-ready course can be a God-send. Although we have used a variety of methods and curriculums in our homeschool through the years (and continue to do so), we strongly feel that the Bob Jones materials we have used have helped to produce excellent, college-ready students. Unless you have a particularly strong aversion to textbooks of any kind, at any level, we highly recommend these materials to you.

Curriculum can be found by subject area in our catalog; see index for page numbers. A free scope and sequence is available below, with specific information by grade level.




A chronological study through the Old and New Testaments, including Bible study, application, memorization, and hymns. Students learn Bible study skills and about the historical context of Bible events. This course includes lesson plans for two "Journey" books. The optional Visual Packet includes a TimeLine featuring Bible characters, other heroes of the faith, and Bible scenes. Hymns studied are on CD.

We bought this book as a chapter book for our 2nd grader We found it a little difficult for her reading level so we turned it into a read aloud instead Wonderful book! It gives the reader a sense of what it was like for these new tribes being exposed to the Gospel and foreign missionaries for the first time But most of all it speaks of the faithfulness of God and the changing power of the Gospel Very well written and very accessible for a young reader
