Apologia Who Is God? Review

This year my family has fallen in love with Apologia as we are just finishing up our first year of their science curriculum. When I was presented with an opportunity to review one of their Bible courses, I jumped at the chance. I was hoping that it would be incredible, and it did not disappoint. It is written in a conversational style to the student and is geared towards ages 6-14. However, I am getting an awful lot out of it myself!

Everything is organized in such a clear manner with the Who Is God? curriculum. With some products out there, I feel like I need a Ph.D. just to understand how it works. That is definitely not needed here. There are ten lessons which have a suggested pace of about two weeks per lesson. The book opens with a How To Use This Book section that is clearly written and super easy to understand. It includes a suggested lesson plan, what key features you will find throughout the book, contact information if you need further help, and the overall lesson structure.

The products for this course are as follows:

A Textbook~

This beautiful book is laid out in such a great way to keep your child’s interest, but at the same time it has not become visually cluttered. The quality of the pages and book itself are excellent. In the first lesson, Where Am I building My Life?, I was hooked. There is scripture, solid teaching, life application, vocabulary, memory verses, and much more.

A Notebooking Journal~

The book opens by saying . . . “The book you hold in your hands is yours. You are the author, editor, and illustrator.” They had my daughter immediately. The Notebook also opens with a How To Use This Book section. It explains in clear detail the thirteen different types of activities the student will find throughout their journal. Such as: Hide It In My Heart, Word Puzzles, Praise Report, and Living Out Loud. What an amazing learning companion and keepsake this book will become.

An audio CD~

A very nice option if you are interested in having someone read aloud the book to your child. The voice on the CD is nice and calm and reads at a very manageable pace.

A color book~

I was quite pleased to find the color book that has pages that perfectly line up with the various stories being taught in the text book. This allows for a child to color while you read aloud to them or to give a younger child their own special work while the older ones complete the Notebooking Journal. It really is a fun option.

Who Is God? is the first course in a four-part series including Who Am I? Who Is My Neighbor? and What On Earth Can I Do? We will definitely be continuing on. I have zero complaints about this curriculum.

I think the best review I can give of this course comes from the simple words of my 11-year-old daughter. When asked what she thought about the Bible curriculum, she replied, “They just do everything in such a fun way that I can actually understand and remember what I have learned.” Thank you, Apologia!

  25. We are planning to use this curriculum with our daughter when she reaches first grade! Have heard so many great things about it, and as you said, even believe I could learn from it.

  38. I’m unsure as to what planner you are asking about as well. I don’t see it anywhere on the page or a link to planners. Having said that, if there is a planner for elementary students, that would be for us. We have children ages 9, 7, 5, and 4. I, too, have been considering trying this curriculum for our kids this coming year. It would be great to win it! Thank you for the opportunity.

  39. I am not sure which planners you are referring to, but one geared towards jr. high and high school would probably be the best choice for our children. Elementary planners are more readily available elsewhere.

  40. We’ve been looking into doing Apologia Science this coming year, and I’d love to try the Who is God curriculum! My son’s going into 2nd grade, and would love the journal. Thanks for the review and giveaway!!

  42. I love Apologia for high school but have never tried their material for younger kids. I will have a 7th grade boy and K girl next year and would love to have this in our school!

  43. Looks like amazing curriculum. We’d love to try it out. I have a rising 2nd grader and a rising 5th grader 🙂

  44. This will be our first year homeschooling. This would start us in the right direction.

  51. I would love to use this Apologia “Who is God?” program with my 2nd grader next year, and perhaps go through it again when she’s in upper elementary. My family has been impressed with Apologia’s Science curriculum for our older boys.

  52. I don’t know who would enjoy this more…me or my kids. We love science around here.

  53. I’ve been looking over this curriculum online and plan to use it next year. I love the foundation that this will give my daughter for a Christian worldview.

  55. I adore these books! I only have the textbooks rather than the lapbook journal and other accessories. This book provides a perspective to understanding God that Bible studies and Sunday school do not about who God is and what He requires of us and why. I have 6 children.

  56. Thank you for the review! This looks like a wonderful help to teach my precious littles about God!! Thanks for the chance!

  57. This is our first year homeschooling and would LOVE to use this with my children. Thank you for the giveaway!

We love the the Biblical Truths that are woven into the curriculum reminding us how amazing our God is in all that He does! We also LOVE the journals! Apologia has made science fun and we would love to try this Bible class. Knowing how you have made your other materials, I know it will be nothing less than Amazing! Would love to be blessed by this material. =0)

  59. We have been looking into using the Who Is God curriculum so this would be a blessing to win. As far as a planner goes, my kids are between the grades of 4 – 7 (ages 9 1/2 – 12)…so whichever would work best for that grade/age group.

  60. We’ve been using Apologia science for the past two years, and will most likely continue with that curriculum…I have been searching for a good Bible curriculum and have been eyeballing this one in particular for a while…would love to win the first set!

  61. So excited to see this reviewed and offered as a giveaway. I have been looking at this and wondering if it would work for us. Thank you so much!

  64. My daughter and I both love Apologia Science and I would love to incorporate the apologia biblical into her daily life.

  65. I have looked into many studies since I started homeschooling 6 years ago. We started Apologia science last year recommended by a fellow hs friend and read about this series. As much as I would have liked to begin this, it was just not in our budget. So sad. I am excited to see this giveaway, I pray it will benefit whoever wins this package.

  66. I have requested a catalog! I’ve been looking for science material that teaches science from a Christian perspective.

  67. This looks exactly like the type of Bible curriculum that would engage my young son. I’m quite sure my preteen daughter would love the journaling aspect as well. It’s nice to find something that can work for both!

  68. We are looking for a Bible curriculum to begin, and I have heard great things about this one. Would love to win!!!

  90. My friend just had this at our bible study yesterday! we have a homeschool room where all our kids go while we have our bible study, and afterwards i asked her about the books she had with her, and she replied, almost word for word your initial sentiment – that it’s geared toward 6-14 year olds (which i think is a generous range, anyway!) but that she was learning a lot herself! i was impressed, and now i want it for my family next school year!

  91. I’m impressed with Apologia’s science and would really like a good Bible curriculum like this. Thank you for the review!

  92. I love their science program, and have been looking for a Bible curriculum to use, it would be nice to try this out…

  94. Thank you for offering us the chance to win such a generous prize. I would love to win this because we have not been attending church since we moved and I would like to introduce some regular spiritual learning into my childrens lives.

Thank you again for your generosity.

  95. We have also been enjoying Apologia for science and I haven’t been able to justify the expense of one of these sets of curriculum but I’d love to give them a try!
