Prepare your children to grapple with challenging ideas as you evaluate together the role of Christianity in society.

Full of rich narratives and intriguing questions, this 18-week curriculum for upper-level high school students covers many subject areas including history, worldview, critical thinking and apologetics.

In an age where misinformation about Christianity and its influence abounds, the goal of What Good is Christianity? is to educate and equip students regarding the positive role and influence of Christianity in relation to a variety of topics and, in the process, respond to contemporary criticisms.

Students will examine topics like Christianity and Western culture, democracy, social justice, education, literature, the fine arts, science, the environment, atheism, charity, special challenges, women and slavery.

We want to help you raise children whoare able to think for themselves, reasonably, as they weigh the claims they will encounter in daily life. Consequently, our goal in this curriculum is not to force-feed information, but to expose you and your children to a variety of ideas they are likely to encounter in their Christian walk, while at the same time providing relevant insights as your children wrestle with challenging ideas.

Seven carefully-selected resources (6 books and a DVD set) accompany your Instructor's Guide. Inside your IG alone you'll find a section on tips for classroom use, the schedule, notes, assignments, discussion questions, and four articles that address interpretation (hermeneutics), faith and science, warfare, and Christianity and women.
