GENESIS
Finding Our Roots

by Dr. Ruth Beechick - READ MORE

Have we been brainwashed about our roots? Read evidence that the writings in Genesis are more ancient than historians admit. Adam, Noah, and other eyewitnesses actually wrote these records for us. This unique course, based on Genesis 1-11, integrates the linguistic evidence and other fields of knowledge with the Bible. It clears up the fuzziness of history before Egypt. Through literature and art it reveals startling insights about giants, dragons, cherubim and other beings that the early people knew but we have lost in myth. Gives true answers to age-old questions of God, man, and the world -- in order to develop the right worldview, which leads to right thinking. Includes maps, charts, timeline and full-color reproductions of ancient art. Six units with flexible uses for teens, almost teens, and the rest of the family.

HEART & MIND
What the Bible Says About Learning
by Dr. Ruth Beechick - READ MORE

Ruth Beechick’s book Heart & Mind offers fresh insight on what the Bible says about learning. Teaching and learning are more effective when people are viewed with heart – with the image of God within them. All other learning theories view man as simply a body. The body learns by seeing, hearing, and sensing in other ways, but it is the heart that acts upon these stimuli.
[Heart & Mind]

.
This book contains the most complete research available about heart in the Bible. The Bible says the heart knows, considers, speaks, remembers, deceives, meditates, and other functions that modernists like to attribute to the brain. This book also reports physiological research that shows the Bible was right all along in the way it spoke about heart. A chart in the appendix summarizes almost 1000 Bible references to heart by meaning.

By restoring our understanding of the role of heart, Dr. Beechick is reminding educators and parents – and especially homeschoolers – that we are not only “educating,” but truly training up the child in the way that he or she should go – in the image of God.
