Dear Parent or Church Leader,
As both a representative for a national Christian curriculum provider and a Christian homeschooling parent, I believe the best education rests on Christ and the Word of God. What good is an excellent education if we lose the hearts of our children to secularism?
The Thinking Like a Christian Video Series by Greater Than I Ministries has been an excellent resource in teaching our teens to develop and defend their Christian Worldview. Our culture, public colleges/universities, and workplaces are steeped in secular thought. Many of our churches are filled with believers who have little knowledge of what they believe or why. Sadly, many of us don't know Church history or doctrine. When questioned, many believers are ill-equipped to share their faith or defend their beliefs persuasively. As the video series reminds us, "My people perish from lack of knowledge." (Hosea 4:6) This should not be so when this outstanding video resource exists to equip believers.
Our family has used the Thinking Like a Christian Video Series as a worldview
course for High School. There are currently two sets of video lectures available. Each
video set includes 6 sessions on topics like History, Economy, Philosophy, Science,
Psychology, and Ethics. Roger Wheelock speaks in a clear, engaging manner on
relevant topics we encounter every day. Roger's passion for God's Word is evident in
his speaking. He desires to equip the Church for spiritual warfare. He reminds us we
are in a battle of ideas for hearts and minds. Roger's lectures begin by pointing out the rich history of our faith, the major worldwide influence of Christianity, and the
foundations of our nation's history. It is enlightening to learn of our rich Christian legacy.
Each video set comes with discussion questions and supporting Scripture for further
research of the Word. My teens and I watched the video sessions together in one
sitting, looked up the Scripture and answered the questions individually later, then came
together for another session to discuss and review what we learned. What interesting
conversations we had together! The Thinking Like a Christian Video Series helped us
to define our worldview. It equipped us to defend our faith. We honed our critical
thinking skills. Our dinner conversations were enlivened with talk of current events in
the light of God's Word and our Christian ethics.
The Thinking Like a Christian Video Series is ideal for teaching in a group setting.
Our video set is now being used as a Christian Worldview Study for a group of teens.
They meet each week to review their Scripture worksheets and notes from the previous
lesson and then watch the next video in the series. The students and their parents are
enriched and empowered by the study.
Our own teen, now attending a state college, has met with many profane, anti-
Christian values. She is immeasurably thankful she had the opportunity to research and
solidify her Christian Worldview. She is empowered to stand against the tide and
prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks, to give the reason for the hope that
she has with gentleness and respect. (I Peter 3:15). The Thinking Like a Christian
Video Series is an invaluable tool to train disciples of Christ in their homes, churches,
and Bible studies. 8e transformed by the renewing of your mind! (Romans 12:2)
