This unusual book defies classification. It is primarily a unit-study-style theological study, but it also covers a good deal of science, history, geography, literature, art, and linguistics.
It consists of six units, all based on the book of Genesis, plus appendices. The six units are entitled, "God's Book of Creation," "Book of Adam," "Book of Noah," "Book of the Sons of Noah," "Book of Shem," and "Book of Terah." Each unit begins with Scripture and Scripture study.
Following next are a series of topical studies. For example, in the first unit on creation some of the topics addressed are dragons, "day," the origin of the week, and creation myths for comparisons. Short readings from other sources are often included, such as selections from two unbiblical "creation" myths.
A final section offers suggestions for further study: correlated readings that fit in directly with the study (primarily from Adam and His Kin by Ruth Beechick and The Genesis Record by Henry Morris), science text topics to look for to expand knowledge, other topical areas for further reading, and writing assignments.
Questions and activities are interspersed throughout each unit; they vary in difficulty from simple to challenging so you can select those that are appropriate for each of your children. Some will require outside reading and research and will clearly be best suited for older students.
The KJV is used throughout, although you can substitute another version if you prefer. The perspective is that of a literal interpretation of the Bible, supporting a young earth. There might be areas where you might hold a different viewpoint. Some might be major (e.g., the age of the earth and length of each of the days of creation) and some might be less crucial (e.g., in talking about the writing of Chapter 1 of the book of Genesis, she states that God either wrote the words Himself or told Adam the words to write). Throughout the study, Dr. Beechick brings out the importance of developing a Biblical Christian worldview.
This is a hardcover book, only about 112 pages in length, so it should take less than a semester to complete. It should work best for family Bible study time, perhaps led by Dad, with Mom then incorporating much of the extended topical studies into school time. It is heavily illustrated and nicely formatted.
