The Bible and Its Influence

The Bible and Its Influence

Based on research studies, Essentials in Education determined that regardless of a person’s stance on matters of religion, an educated person needs to know about the Bible. The content of the Bible has had a tremendous influence on people and cultures throughout the world. Its subject matter permeates great works of literature, music, and art; it provides a foundation for history, law, and politics. The Bible and Its Influence was developed to teach the content of the Bible in public schools and colleges. To ensure that the material is presented in an objective and academic way, the authors worked with the First Amendment Center and forty contributors of various backgrounds to create the lessons. The result was a book that is compliant with the Constitution and Supreme Court rulings.

The teacher’s edition provides instructional tools and strategies to ensure a rigorous academic program for students. The teacher’s edition includes a wrap-around design of instructional notes, critical thinking activities, and connections and applications to other academic content areas. Teacher materials also include Pacing Guides, Lesson Plans, Graphic Organizers, Chapter and Unit Tests, and Unit Project and Writing Activities with rubrics.)

Together these books provide the tools for a successful Bible course.
