Our kidlings are leaving the church in record numbers. All that Sunday school and Bible reading doesn’t keep them coming back on Sunday. Why? Well, a lot of it has to do with the Biblical world view clashing with the secular world view.
Finally, there’s a program that can help you instill reasoned thinking and a solid foundation for the way God wants us to think about the world. Introducing “Philosophy Adventures”!
“When Paul urges us not to be blown about by every wind of doctrine, a knowledge of what drives those winds will blunt their impact. Philosophy Adventure will give students a grasp of the foundations of Western philosophical thought and do it in an accessible and engaging way, but even more, its integrated approach will give your students the rhetorical skills to communicate the important differences between that which is ‘falsely-called wisdom’ and a truly Biblical worldview. Philosophy Adventure is more than a course on thinkers, it’s a course in how to think for yourself and how to effectively share those thoughts with others. And it’s a course you and your students won’t be able to put down!”

“At earlier times in history, Christians had the luxury of being able to ignore the formal discipline of philosophy. However, if the events of the last hundred years have shown us anything it is that philosophical ideas have practical consequences. It is therefore imperative that Christian students be equipped with the tools for understanding philosophy.
“Philosophy Adventure helps towards this end by mediating complex ideas to middle school and high school students. The first volume presents the rich legacy of the pre-Socratics in an exciting, accessible manner. The thing I like so much about it is that Stacy Farrell brings ancient philosophy alive through activities that facilitate student interaction. I have also been impressed by the interdisciplinary aspect of the project, which successfully integrates philosophy with history, science, mathematics, geography, logic and the Bible.”

“If philosophy is the love of wisdom, then Philosophy Adventure is a course to love for your teen children. This captivating overview of pre-Socratic philosophers not only will help instill a love for knowledge and wisdom in your child’s heart and mind, but even more it will fuel the growing flames of faith and Christian worldview at a critical point in your child’s life.
“What makes this course especially distinctive is its trust in the Christian student—encouraging your child to interact with all knowledge (the history and views of philosophers who have shaped thinking), and then helping them to ‘make a defense…for the hope that is in you’ from Scripture and reason. Thoughtfully-designed writing, thinking, and speaking exercises biblically equip your child to make their beliefs their own. Beautifully-designed interior pages make philosophy both more appealing and easier to learn.
“This is the kind of wholehearted learning that fueled our own family’s love of learning. I heartily recommend this adventure.”
