Bible Doctrines for Today (3rd Ed.) Grade 10
This one-year study from Abeka® teaches key aspects of 9 essential Bible doctrines: the Bible, God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, man, salvation, the church, angels, and the end times. Viewing the Bible as the inerrant, inspired word of God, the course points directly to Scripture to explain theology, with additional materials that flesh out concepts. Designed as a 4-day/week course, lessons follow a structure: prayer; verse memorization and review (selected KJV verses are doctrine-related and also contain quotes from Proverbs). The lesson with discussion questions (about 25 minutes) will take its cue from the teacher outlines; content comes from the text.
A user-friendly Student Text (297 pgs, spiral pb) provides ample Scripture support for doctrine, in turn, explaining world views and false doctrine (with Biblical support for responses). Lessons are divided into easily consumed pieces, making use of detailed outline/bullet points and other helpful elements like summaries, charts, definitions and Scripture references. This text would be a helpful reference or discipling tool—for any high school student. Written from a traditional evangelical viewpoint, the course focuses on doctrinal truths and commonly avoids denominational “hot topics.” Of minor note, there is brief teaching on the pre-tribulation view of the rapture and a brief mention that a Pastor should be the “husband of only one wife.”
The Teacher Edition (364 pgs, spiral pb) contains the full text of the student book in the front, with bullet-point-like teacher daily lesson plans (no scripted lessons), and text review questions and answers. The teacher will determine how material is taught and discussed. The course recommends oral verse quizzes (every 4th day) and content quizzes after a series of lessons. Quarterly review, quizzes, tests (with essay questions) are provided with the Quiz/Test set and the separate Quiz/Test Key. For music correlating with this course, Sing His Praises Hymns and Choruses is available on the Abeka® website. ~ Ruth
