As a Christian family, it is very important to us that our children know their Bible and be quite literate of the content contained therein. Veritas Press has come up with a pretty cool online program that can help with that: VeritasBible.com.
VeritasBible.com is an online subscription program that teaches your students about what's in Bible. It takes you through the stories of the Bible starting from Genesis through to the New Testament. Once you get an account, you can create different profiles for your kids and each child can then go through it at their own pace. You get to choose which part of the Bible to focus on (Genesis to Joshua, Judges to Kings, or the Gospels). Being a firm believer in starting from the beginning, I had the boys start at Genesis. I had them use the program on a daily basis.
The program is set up like a road map. Each stop represents a lesson, and the lessons are grouped by themes or events such as:
- The Fall
- Cain and Abel
- Enoch and Methusalah
- The flood
The lessons themselves are very engaging. They contain narrations, animations, games, songs, and Scripture reading. The lessons are told by people who are acting as if they lived in the time of Joshua, retelling what happened.
The boys liked the program. They thought it was light-hearted and enjoyable. They like that it is interactive and not monotone. They were not that impressed about the talking animals, but overall thought it was a nice program. They also felt that a lot of it was topics that they already knew, so it might be repetitive for older kids that have been immersed in the Bible all their lives.
This program is a great option though for a Bible curriculum. I personally love the abundant presence of actual Bible passages. I also love the repetition and review built in the program.p through the games and the tests.
Veritas Press has wonderful graded curriculum, among which is a Bible curriculum ( which other crew members got to review as well), but VeritasBible.com's subscription program is definitely another good option worth checking out.
