Have you heard of C. S. Lewis? I am sure you have heard of his Chronicles of Narnia Series. That is what I think of when I hear his name. But is that all you think of? Well, now I want you to think of Mere Christianity when you hear his name.
The classic work commonly known as Mere Christianity is actually a four-book series which explores the common ground upon which all Christians stand. It brings together Lewis’ legendary radio talks broadcast during World War II previously published as: Right and Wrong as a Clue to the Meaning of the Universe, What Christians Believe, Christian Behavior, and Beyond Personality (or First Steps in the Doctrine of the Trinity) , and provides an unequaled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to hear this powerful apologetic for the Christian faith.
Stacy Farrell from Home School Adventure Co. wrote her Mere Christianity Critical Analysis Journal to go along with this wonderful book. The Mere Christianity Critical Analysis Journal is a great tool that will help you to strengthen your critical thinking skills while still cultivating a biblical worldview. Stacy had originally created the journal to be a companion resource to her wonderful Philosophy Adventure, but there is nothing stopping you from using in group or independent studies for teenagers through adults.
You are able to order the Journal in two formats, either spiral bound print or PDF digital copy. Both of these copies are $28.95. However, if you order before January 31, 2014 and use code 10FFMC you will be able to get 10% off!
This journal provides 10-16 questions to go along with each chapter in Mere Christianity and they can be discussed among many groups from homeschools to Sunday school groups and among families. With the purchase of the PDF copy, you would be able to print and write your answers in or you can use the really cool typeable format and just type your answers right on the screen!
Now you love the way this all sounds, but you don't have a copy of Mere Christianity you say? Well, here is a little secret I will share with you. You can download a free copy of Mere Christianity right here.
Since I don't have any high school students at home (yet), I used this journal for myself. And I LOVED it! First of all, when do I get to read something other than picture books? (Not saying that I mind that!) It was nice to spend some time sitting down and reading something a little more grown up. But than to add in letting me think more critically and to take my mind off lesson plans…yeah, I kind of liked that one 🙂
I have been taking my time while reading this book and working through the questions that Stacy has put together in her Journal. I have really enjoyed reading more about the Christian faith and learning more about myself in the process. This is a book that I would recommend to families with older children, or even as a family to discuss and bible study groups. This is not just a "homeschool" journal in the least bit! I have honestly not found one thing to complain about at all! Nothing! Stacy has done a wonderful job once again!
Now that I have you interested, why don't you join us tonight (1/16/14) for a Facebook party! It will be at 8 pm Eastern time and will include lots of fellowship and some giveaways. Please come help us celebrate the launch of this wonderful book!!
