Who Am I and What Am I Doing Here?

From Chuck Colson:

John [Stonestreet, Summit Ministries] told me he and his colleagues were frustrated over the quality of Christian books for kids. Most of them contained Bible lessons with a moral at the end. But’s that not teaching worldview. So Summit joined with Apologia educational ministries to write a worldview series for kids.

I’ve seen these books, and I can tell you this: They will ruin the efforts of secular teachers, journalists, and sex educators to brainwash our kids-because they instruct even young children how to think.

The first volume in the planned four-part series is titled, Who Is God? (And Can I Really Know Him?) — Biblical Worldview of God and Truth (What We Believe, Volume 1). The second volume is Who Am I? (And What Am I Doing Here?) — Biblical Worldview of Self-Image (What We Believe, Volume 2). The curriculum is intended for children as young as six, and contains “big ideas,” vocabulary, discussion questions, exercises, stories, and activities.

The books, written by John Hay and David Webb, introduce kids to the concept of differing worldviews and how they shape our perceptions of the world around us. They also teach kids that conflicting worldviews cannot all be true. When they face contradictory worldview claims, the authors invite kids to ask themselves two critical questions: How do I know what is true? And how must we live our lives in relation to the truth we come to know? Just the right questions!
