TOS Review: Who is God/Apologia



     Apologia's book Who Is God? And Can I Really Know Him by John Hay and David Webb helps you teach the truth from God’s Word to your children. We have approached this book two different ways. At first I read out loud to the kids, and they answered questions. Later I had the girls take turns reading out loud, and I asked each of the children to answer questions. Discussions evolving from the readings have been interesting. The chapters are long, but can easily be broken down into smaller units. 

     The main idea is presented in multiple ways throughout each chapter. Colorful illustrations, hands on activities, and stories are included to help make the concepts concrete for your children. The company provides a link from the book to the website with a wealth of additional information including notebooking pages, teaching aids, and more.

     My children have enjoyed reading Who Is God together and even shared it with my Grandparents. This is a resource we plan to continue using. This 252 page hardback book is Volume 1 of their Biblical Worldview of God and Truth series: What We Believe. Each of these 4 volumes (the last two will be released soon) are available for $39.

     From the website:
"Who is God and Can I Really Know Him?, introduces the concept of worldview while laying the foundational truths upon which the evangelical Christian worldview is built: God is truth and He reveals His truth to people; He is the one true and almighty God; He is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; He created everything; we are God’s children and are made to love and to praise Him; God meets all our needs; sin keeps us from God; and Jesus is the only way to God."
     These are truths I want my children to learn now. Apologia also has this link available to actually see a sample from this book. See what others on the Crew say about this resource here.

  1. The book sounds like an awesome way to get the questions started early – the questions that lead to answers – and Our Lord. I just came to read you today – not for the link – but I look down below and there’s a list – so I’ll see you in that comment section too.

    God Bless and keep you and all of yours

  3. I was just scrolling down to take a quick look at the blogs I subscribe to and saw that you're reviewing the apologia series I was just reading about in their catalogue. I completely want to get it, and especially like the sound of the second book about teaching children to see their identity in the Lord. Thanks for the review!
