God's Great Covenant New Testament Course

another great product from Classical Academic Press

     Our family enjoys listening to audio books. On the day that we received the audio files for God's Great Covenant New Testament One we had just finished working on our garden for several hours, so the kids enjoyed listening while we ate a quick lunch. After chapter one ended, they requested more and more. Joseph laid down and closed his eyes, but he shared enough comments to let me know that he was listening closely. My favorite was "I remember Grandmommie reading this to me out of my Bible." Thirty five chapters cover the birth of Jesus Christ through his ascension. The audio version is a reading directly from the text in the student book without the activities. Though the actual lessons are designed for students fourth grade and up, the audio component is enjoyable for all ages.

  • 36 weekly chapters, divided into 4 themed units
  • Each chapter contains:
    • A memory page that includes a weekly memory verse, key facts chart, fulfillment of prophecy section
    • A thought-provoking “Think About It” question that encourages children to consider how to relate to God in their own lives
    • A worksheet and quiz
  • Unit reviews that contain a memory verse worksheet, devotional guide, and a fun short story of life in Simon’s world

     A lesson 24 quote will give you an example of the style of the book. This chapter shares how Jesus taught using parables. "The three stories about lost things teach us three things: 1. all people are lost in sin and need to be found by Jesus the Savior; 2. God's great love for sinners is the motive for salvation, and except for God's grace, all would remain lost, and 3. God, and all heaven, including the angels, rejoice when they see the repentant hearts of those Jesus came to save.
     In telling parables, Jesus challenged His listeners to think differently, to see life and the world the way God does."

     Old Testament 1 and 2 versions are also available as well as timeline, map sets, and audio files. The New Testament student book is $26.95, also bundled with student book, teacher guide, and audio download for $56.95. Samples are available on the Classical Academic Press website.
