The Dance of Number, ideal for independent study, is a sequenced and tightly integrated curriculum involving four textbooks totaling 1924 pages (Grades 6-10, ages 12-16) consisting of 14 chapters, called the steps of the Dance. The only prerequisite for the first textbook is above average reading comprehension. This curriculum starts from ground zero, teaches the basics of arithmetic from a fresh, vibrant perspective, and then takes the reader on a journey that leads to the borderlands of the mountain range called Calculus. There are plenty of side roads along the way where we stop to gaze at the scenic beauty (i.e., a unified look at principles of Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry). It is a long trip; its completion is worth the effort.

The texts are not named Algebra I or Algebra II, etc., because the four-volume sequence tells an coordinated story engaging the student in the nature of the structure of number, the development of its history, and its interpenetration with science. As the student takes this journey, all the concepts of Arithmetic, high school Algebra, most of Geometry, and a complete study of Trigonometry are unfolded.

Because of this harmonized approach, these texts are different than most of what is on the market. The author wants the student to see how the ideas/branches of mathematics interpenetrate (e.g., you are doing algebraic operations and geometrical procedures as you are learning the elements of trigonometry). Our current textbook structure is not that successful at doing this.

This is volume 2 of Part 1 of The Dance of Number subtitled Elements of the Dance ... Becoming Proficient in Arithmetic (Steps 5 to 7).

[General structure and specific features]

This volume teaches the arithmetical operations involving division, fractions (rational numbers), and decimals, along with the number sense required to master such operations. The discussion of division includes a detailed exploration of basic divisibility rules. A streamlined approach to the division algorithm is also taught. A startling revelation of the rational number system is unfolded. Basic geometric constructions are explained, the methods of scientific measurement explored, and the history and use of measurement systems, British Imperial and Metric, detailed. Pertinent and challenging quotes from mathematicians, scientists, and theologians appear throughout the text. To complete this thoroughly indexed text, an additional detailed solutions manual is available, a manual that includes the teacher’s guide. A suggested scheduled along with a quiz and exam packet is also available.

[Grade level]

This text is aimed at grades 6-8 (Arithmetic and Pre-Algebra).

[Prerequisite]

Successful completion of volume 1 of Part 1 (Steps 1-4).

[Unique Feature]

Here is a unique study of math that is grounded in Trinitarian theology: Discover the beauty of how math principles are interrelated; i.e., how they are interconnected and how they interpenetrate with the physical creation, revealing in a created way the uncreated perichoretic nature of the Triune Creator, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who mutually indwell each other in dynamic relationship of loving communion.

Product Description
Too often, teachers feel ill-equipped to present a compelling, integrated biblical worldview. In Undivided: Developing a Worldview Approach to Biblical Integration, Dr. Martha E. MacCullough identifies the prominent worldviews in our culture and presents a model for biblical integration that fosters worldview thinking in teachers and students and can be used even by teachers with no formal biblical training.

Students today are surrounded by competing and contradictory worldviews. They look to their teachers for guidance, but too often, teachers feel ill-equipped to present a compelling and integrated biblical worldview leaving students with splintered perspectives that separate secular from sacred.

Through strategic curriculum design and committed biblical study, teachers at any level, kindergarten through college, can develop wholehearted students who think and act out of a biblical worldview in life and learning.

Product Description
Does God belong in the public arena of politics, business, law, and education? Or is religion a private matter only--personally comforting but publicly irrelevant? In today's cultural etiquette, it is not considered polite to mix public and private, or sacred and secular. This division is the single most potent force keeping Christianity contained in the private sphere--stripping it of its power to challenge and redeem the whole of culture.

In Total Truth, Nancy Pearcey offers a razor-sharp analysis of the public/private split, explaining how it hamstrings our efforts at both personal and cultural renewal. Ultimately it reflects a division in the concept of truth itself, which functions as a gatekeeper, ruling Christian principles out of bounds in the public arena.

How can we unify our fragmented lives and recover spiritual power? With examples from the lives of real people, past and present, Pearcey teaches readers how to liberate Christianity from its cultural captivity. She walks readers through practical, hands-on steps for crafting a full-orbed Christian worldview.

Finally, she makes a passionate case that Christianity is not just religious truth but truth about total reality. It is total truth.

Product Description
What does mathematics have to do with the Biblical text? Isn’t 2 + 2 = 4 everywhere? Doesn’t everyone—regardless of religion, culture, or point of view—see it the same way? Actually, mathematics is not just facts and figures; it may surprise people to know it also includes a worldview—a philosophy with implications for how to approach it and how to use it. Not only so, but mathematicians disagree about mathematical facts and processes: some reject what others accept, disputing even what constitutes mathematical proof—and one mathematician proved we cannot know it all ! Yet so incredibly effective is mathematics in describing and explaining physical phenomena, and even some of the most chaotic of human enterprises, that the universe appears to have been designed by a pure mathematician. Through most of history, mathematics has been intimately tied to religious and philosophical beliefs. Is that any less true today if it is approached “secularly”? The mathematics in this book is mainly confined to high school level so it should not be too difficult to understand. Included are applications—and scriptures that help students learn mathematics. Whether involved in education, or using mathematics on a job, or just interested in mathematics or philosophy, each reader is offered something to ponder.

ISBN: 097736111X
Publisher: Christian Perspective
Publication date: 2015-04-09 18:03:49
Language: English
Price: 999.11



Product Description
Math does not have to be hard or difficult to understand. Nor do we as Christians have to settle for viewing it the same way the world does. Beyond Numbers exposes the spiritual harm in today's math presentations and shows how math is really an exciting testimony to God's faithfulness and is an incredible, God-given tool. The second half of the book walks through teaching math biblically, covering everything from curriculum choice to overcoming obstacles. Written in a straightforward, non-technical manner, this book is perfect for homeschool parents and anyone else who wants to view or teach math biblically. James D. Nickel, professor of mathematics and author of Mathematics: Is God Silent?, said, "The book is a great, general-purpose introduction for a typical parent." Sandra A. Lovelace, homeschool pioneer, speaker and author, and International Consultant with HSLDA made the following statement: "Every homeschooling parent, every Christian teacher, and maybe every Christian who uses mathematics ought to read this book." Homeschool mothers have found the book delightfully easy to read and encouraging. One mother explains, "As a homeschooling mom committed to teaching my children to love God whole-heartedly, I was startled to find I had unconsciously accepted math as a spiritually neutral...I believe every Christian teacher who reads Beyond Numbers will be challenged to rethink his/her assumptions about math, and will be motivated, as I am, to find new ways to present math facts, concepts and principles biblically."

Product Description

Is capitalism Christian? Is there a Christian perspective on business? How should a Christian use power in the workplace? In addressing such difficult questions as these, Business Through the Eyes of Faith demonstrates how God can dwell at the center of one's life even in the secular marketplace.

Here is pragmatic affirmation of the role that committed Christians can play in the business world. The authors stress the connections between Christian principles and good management and provide biblical passages that support their principles and relate them to the practical issues faced by Christian managers. Issues such as employee motivation, workplace communication, business leadership, the role of profit, and social responsibility are all addressed in concrete terms and reinforced by short vignettes, suggested biblical passages to explore, and commentaries from contemporary theorists and practitioners.

Business Through the Eyes of Faith shows that business can and should be a reflection of God's kingdom. It is an invaluable resource for Christian business students, managers, and those who wish to understand the concerns and motives of Christians in the business world.

Building upon the doctrine of Creation, the authors show how the reading of literature helps us to be more effective interpreters of the stories and images we encounter daily. They demonstrate that great works of literature open up a realm of beauty and truth and help us gain an understanding of ourselves, God, and the world.

Price: 10.39



Product Description

"Christian musicians know of the obligation to make music as agents of God's grace. They make music graciously, whatever its kind or style, as ambassadors of Christ, showing love, humility, servanthood, meekness, victory, and good example . . . Music is freely made, by faith, as an act of worship, in direct response to the overflowing grace of God in Christ Jesus."

Co-sponsored by the Christian College Coalition, this thought-provoking study of music-as-worship leads both students and experienced musicians to a better understanding of the connections between music making and Christian faith.

"Christian music makers have to risk new ways of praising God. Their faith must convince them that however strange a new offering may be, it cannot out-reach, out-imagine, or overwhelm God. God remains God, ready to swoop down in the most wonderful way, amidst all of the flurry and mystery of newness and repetition, to touch souls and hearts, all because faith has been exercised and Christ's ways have been imitated. Meanwhile, a thousand tongues will never be enough."

Best relates musical practice to a larger theology of creation and creativity, and explores new concepts of musical quality and excellence, musical unity, and the incorporation of music from other cultures into today's music.

The Visual Valet is a distillation of what I've learned on my journey as a teacher about connecting God's world to God's word. It is designed to help teachers--and their students--remember the "big picture" which gives meaning to all the details that we study. Because it is suggestive rather than prescriptive, it can be used to assist all ages consider the important questions that are often ignored when answering, "Why do we have to learn this stuff anyway?" I discovered that no matter where I taught, my thinking was the biggest obstacle to offering Christ-centered education. I trust that the Visual Valet model will help you be a more intentional Christ-follower wherever you teach.

 Product Description
The Bible can and should be an environment in which we live and move and have our being, an environment in which we are shaped by God in different and interrelated ways. As with aspects of our physical environment, we may have never noticed many elements of this spiritual environment before or may have only the vaguest sense of their influence. While we may be more familiar with certain elements, we may not realize the full extent of their influence or be too preoccupied to see how they relate to form the larger whole of how we are shaped. This book looks one-by-one at several ways in which the Bible's environment influences us as people and, in particular, shapes our beliefs, attitudes, and practices as teachers in the classroom. It is concerned with helping readers to be, at one and the same time, faithful to our common calling as educators and faithful to the Scriptures as Christians.

Product Description
The Bible reveals God as the creator and lord of everything: "The earth is the LORD's, and everything in it" (Psalm 24:1). Yet for many people, including many Christians, this comprehensive worldview has become obscured. A line divides personal faith from daily life, work, and recreation, and we are left feeling fragmented, disconnected, and without purpose.

But God is at work today, leading a generation back to an undivided understanding of the kingdom of God and the earth. What lies beyond the sacred-secular divide? A fulfilling, integrated life that unites faith and action, the spiritual and the physical, Sundays and the rest of the week. God cares about every part, and we have the incredible opportunity to join him in his all-encompassing, redemptive plan for our world. What are we waiting for?

Revolutionizing the lives and renewing the minds of believers and local churches from North America to Africa, the Kingdom Lifestyle Bible Studies help people grow in their relationship with the King and his kingdom. Each tested, insightful study is designed for group or individual use and equips believers to engage in a vibrant life with Christ and offer healing to a broken world.

Product Description

Understand where we came from.

Whether you're an avid student of the Bible or a skeptic of its relevance, The Book That Made Your World will transform your perception of its influence on virtually every facet of Western civilization.

Indian philosopher Vishal Mangalwadi reveals the personal motivation that fueled his own study of the Bible and systematically illustrates how its precepts became the framework for societal structure throughout the last millennium.  From politics and science, to academia and technology, the Bible's sacred copy became the key that unlocked the Western mind.

Through Mangalwadi's wide-ranging and fascinating investigation, you'll discover:

  • What triggered the West's passion for scientific, medical, and technological advancement
  • How the biblical notion of human dignity informs the West's social structure and how it intersects with other worldviews
  • How the Bible created a fertile ground for women to find social and economic empowerment
  • How the Bible has uniquely equipped the West to cultivate compassion, human rights, prosperity, and strong families
  • The role of the Bible in the transformation of education
  • How the modern literary notion of a hero has been shaped by the Bible's archetypal protagonist

Journey with Mangalwadi as he examines the origins of a civilization's greatness and the misguided beliefs that threaten to unravel its progress.  Learn how the Bible transformed the social, political, and religious institutions that have sustained Western culture for the past millennium, and discover how secular corruption endangers the stability and longevity of Western civilization.

 

Endorsements:

“This is an extremely significant piece of work with huge global implications. Vishal brings a timely message.” (Ravi Zacharias, author, Walking from East to West and Beyond Opinion)

“In polite society, the mere mention of the Bible often introduces a certain measure of anxiety. A serious discussion on the Bible can bring outright contempt. Therefore, it is most refreshing to encounter this engaging and informed assessment of the Bible’s profound impact on the modern world. Where Bloom laments the closing of the American mind, Mangalwadi brings a refreshing optimism.” (Stanley Mattson, founder and president, C. S. Lewis Foundation)

“Vishal Mangalwadi recounts history in very broad strokes, always using his cross-cultural perspectives for highlighting the many benefits of biblical principles in shaping civilization.” (George Marsden, professor, University of Notre Dame; author, Fundamentalism and American Culture)

Product Description
A Christian educator's philosophy of education serves as a guide to educational practices and as a tool to evaluate and develop practices that are coherent and consistent with a Christian worldview. In By Design, Dr. MacCullough walks her readers through a disciplined exercise in developing a personal philosophy of education that is informed by their worldview. D. Bruce Lockerbie (Chairman of PAIDEIA, Inc.) says, "Dr. Martha E. MacCullough provides a rare service from a scholar's desk: She offers essentially her notes, lectures, and exercises given to students who are preparing to follow her vocation as teachers. Her course is an introduction to various philosophies of education, and her premise holds that anyone seeking to develop a philosophy of education must first determine one's own perspective on life that results in a distinctive worldview." Phil Basset (Director of Teacher Training for International Schools of China and Adjunct Professor of Education at Cedarville University) says, "Dr. MacCullough has an unusual ability to understand complex philosophies and theories, examine them in the light of her deeply held Christian worldview, and then explain them in clear and understandable ways. In By Design, Dr. MacCullough brings all of her considerable intellectual and pedagogical abilities to bear as she brings intellectual rigor down from the ivory tower and puts it to work."

Our children are bombarded daily with competing messages. Every song, movie, book, TV show, blog, and game is full of ideas -- ideas about God, people, truth, beauty, and right and wrong. Not all of these ideas are true. Some are deceptive and even destructive. The What We Believe series helps children learn to discern the truth by using God's Word as a lens through which to view the world around them -- to see everything the way God sees it. Easy to use for the whole family, this beautiful hardcover volume is the first book in a four-part study that introduces young people, ages 6-14, to the basic truths of the Christian faith. Through engaging stories, creative notebooking, and fun activities, they will come to know and trust our loving God while building an unshakable faith to last a lifetime.

Who Is God? (And Can I Really Know Him?) is fantastic! A great resource for parents to use with their kids, this content really hits the bulls-eye. And the visuals are off the chart. This could be the Sistine Chapel of children's apologetics books!

A tapestry of challenging questions, exciting stories, solid biblical teaching, and wise counsel. This series will bring adventure and fun back into learning for the whole family.

Author of Someday Heaven and God Is with You

Instruction in apologetics and worldview is sadly lacking among Christian youth, and that's probably why so many fall away from their faith after high school. This book is a 'moral flashlight' to illuminate the source of truth for young people everywhere. Get it and read it with your kids. I am.
Chuck Holton

I absolutely LOVE this book! Apologia has successfully produced another awesome curriculum which exceeds our expectations, and for that, we in the homeschool community are grateful!

Marissa Leinart

Emmy-winning news anchor

In my twenty-one years of working with youth and children's ministries, I have seen my share of resources and program materials. But rarely have I been as impressed as I am with Who Is God? (And Can I Really Know Him?). This is a vital resource, extremely well done, and one which I predict will become a standard text in many churches, homes, and schools. In our video-driven culture, many are saying that fewer and fewer people are reading and that it is especially hard to get kids into books. Yet my niece and nephew (both in elementary school) couldn't put this one down. I highly recommend this book and the entire What We Believe series.

“…Biblical thinking that addresses the issues of the 21st century in an effective and redemptive way” which can be read online

Product Description
Do you wonder why the Christian faith has become weak and ineffectual in dealing with issues of politics, education, the media, and daily life?

Landa Cope had a crisis of faith. Her realization that a large Christian population didn't benefit a community -- and that Christians didn't seem to care -- provoked deep sadness, burning questions, and a passion to uncover how the gospel can truly bless society. The answers to her questions bring new hope. An Introduction to the Old Testament Template is a practical and thought-provoking guide to applying God's whole biblical revelation to every area of culture. Readers of all professions and backgrounds will rethink long-held beliefs and learn how to bring a righteous influence back into the culture in which they live.

Price: 7.00


A history of science from the time “when disagreements took place primarily among Christians over how to best express God’s relationship to the natural world…”

Product Description

"I consider The Soul of Science to be a most significant book which, in our scientific age, should be required reading for all thinking Christians and all practicing scientists. The authors demonstrate how the flowering of modern science depended upon the Judeo-Christian worldview of the existence of a real physical contingent universe, created and held in being by an omnipotent personal God, with man having the capabilities of rationality and creativity, and thus being capable of investigating it. Pearcey and Thaxton make excellent use of analogies to elucidate difficult concepts, and the clarity of their explanations for the nonspecialist, for example, of Einstein's relativity theories or of the informational content of DNA and its consequences for theories of prebiotic evolution, are quite exceptional, alone making the volume worth purchasing." --Dr. David Shotton, Lecturer in Cell Biology, Department of Zoology, University of Oxford

"Pearcey and Thaxton show that the alliance between atheism and science is a temporary aberration and that, far from being inimical to science, Christian theism has played and will continue to play an important role in the growth of scientific understanding. This brilliant book deserves wide readership." --Phillip E. Johnson, University of California, Berkeley

"This book would be an excellent text for courses on science and religion, and it should be read by all Christians interested in the relationship between science and their theological commitments." --J.P. Moreland, Professor of Philosophy, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University

“…this volume issues a serious call to recover a Christian worldview that is absolute and exclusive”

Product Description

"A truly Christian worldview begins with the conviction that God Himself has spoken in Scripture. As Christians, we are committed to the Bible as the inerrant and authoritative Word of God. Scripture is the standard by which we must test all other truth-claims. Unless that dominates our perspective on all of life, we cannot legitimately claim to have embraced a Christian worldview. Think Biblically! issues a serious call to recover a Christian worldview that is absolute and exclusive. These essays are intended to reaffirm and restore a biblically-based view of life's reality from God's perspective. Whether the reader is a student in high school or college, a pastor or professor, a missionary or biblical counselor, a layperson or Christian worker, this book will help refocus proper attention on God's understanding of the world in which one lives." -Adapted from the Preface and Chapter 1

What we think shapes who we are. That's why the Bible tells us, "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind" (Romans 12:2a). In a world of differing voices competing for our allegiance, we must learn to "think biblically" so we can distinguish good from evil. God is the Creator of this world; His voice-His Word-must guide our thoughts and our lives.

With the Bible in their hands, John MacArthur and other scholars and teachers from The Master's College confront the false worldviews that dominate our postmodern world. The authors provide models for cultivating a biblical mind-set on worship, psychology, gender, science, education, history, government, economics, and literature. This book will prove to be helpful to anyone striving to Think Biblically! in today's culture.

They long to see Christianity penetrate the structures of society, reforming and remolding our culture. From scholarship in the universities to politics, business and family life, the Christian vision can transform our world. To stimulate such change the authors analyze our troubled age, show us how it got that way and suggest a solution. Their clear presentation of a Christian world view forms the basis of their hope.

“…to help you understand the significance cyberculture has for us as Christians”

Product Description

In the Internet we are facing the biggest information revolution since the printing press. This technology presents new challenges to our culture as a whole, making it essential that we as Christians be "plugged in." And while millions are online, you, like many, may be simultaneously uneasy about where this new medium is leading us.

Noted culture critic Gene Veith and Chris Stamper, a leading voice in modern technology, want to help you understand the significance cyberculture has for us as Christians. The authors tackle the current controversies, including censorship, the possible demise of print, and how it all ties into postmodernism. As they challenge the myths, probe the weaknesses, and reveal the possibilities of this new and continually developing medium, you will become an informed and discerning traveler on the information highway. One who understands the cultural and worldview implications of the Internet and who knows how to be wired to it but not entangled by it.

Traces “the foundations of Western though back to…the ancient Greeks, who fathered secular, human-centered rationalism, and the ancient Hebrews, who carried forward God’s revelation”

Product Description
The visible actions of people are first shaped by invisible thoughts, deep in the unseen world of the human mind and heart. What factors influence those invisible ideas? For people who live in the Western world, the answers can be found by examining the two major roots of Western thought--the ancient Greeks and the ancient Hebrews. Assumptions That Affect Our Lives takes the reader back to the roots of the modern conflict between Christianity and secular humanism through a comparison of ancient Greek and Hebrew culture. What the reader will discover is, the current tension between evangelical Christians and the non-biblical ideas with which they are surrounded is an age old conflict. By viewing the current situation in the context of the ancient Greeks and Hebrews, contemporary Christians can be better equipped to deal with the challenges of living in a predominately Greek-based culture today.

“…a radical challenge…to go beyond salvation—to understand biblical faith as an entire worldview, a perspective on all of life”

Product Description
2000 Gold Medallion Award winner!
Christianity is more than a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It is also a worldview that not only answers life's basic questions—Where did we come from, and who are we? What has gone wrong with the world? What can we do to fix it?—but also shows us how we should live as a result of those answers. How Now Shall We Live? gives Christians the understanding, the confidence, and the tools to confront the world's bankrupt worldviews and to restore and redeem every aspect of contemporary culture: family, education, ethics, work, law, politics, science, art, music. This book will change every Christian who reads it. It will change the church in the new millennium.
Amazon.com Review
How Now Shall We Live was the heart cry of a people who lived during the Jewish exile from the Promised Land, yet it is no less the unspoken prayer of the faithful today. As author Chuck Colson puts it, "We live in a culture that is at best morally indifferent ... in which Judeo-Christian values are mocked ... in which violence, banality, meanness, and disintegrating personal behavior are destroying civility and endangering the very life of our communities." It is no small wonder that Colson--the founder of Prison Fellowship Ministries and author of several renowned Christian works--considers this book the most important work of his life.

America, Colson states, is now in a post-Judeo-Christian era. Technically, this is what "postmodernism" means. In a generation in which the most respected brands of thought about reality declare that "God is dead," it is clear that a faith-based worldview does not prevail. So how do we teach our children that belief in God is respectable and intelligent? How do we fulfill our mandate to make "disciples of all nations" when friends and coworkers find the Christian perspective foolhardy and--in terms of rational thought--almost insane? Most important, how do we renew our entire culture, especially as it infects the global community, with the "common grace" of reinstating a prevailing belief in God and in His moral order?

These questions' implications are far-reaching, and Colson's thorough inquiry is a ready match for the challenge. In effect, this book delivers a logical, more than just "because the Bible says so" framework for interpreting the Gospel to the postmodern world, while also illustrating the vision for a culture based entirely on Biblical principles--powerful tools, indeed.

Christians are taught to love God with all their hearts, all their strength, and all their minds. How Now Shall We Live emphasizes that not to use one's mind in this idea-saturated culture is to abandon dying neighbors to bleed by the side of the road while going about one's religious way. As Colson puts it, "turning our backs on the culture ... denies God's sovereignty over all of life." It's this compassionate severity and prodding intelligence that make this book not only a good read, but a life-changing one as well. --Courtenay Gebhardt

“An essay on the hidden role of religious belief in theories”

Product Description
Critical praise for the original edition: "[The Myth of Religious Neutrality] is very well written. It is clear and informative. There is excellent work on recognizing deficient theories in terms of logical inconsistency, self-referential incoherence, self-assumptive incoherence, and self-performative incoherence. [Clouser’s] case studies point out clearly the uproven presuppositions behind many so-called 'rationalist' theories about various aspects of reality." —Review of Metaphysics

"[S]ignificant and challenging. . . . Clouser’s book makes the case that all theorizing inevitably involves religious beliefs. Clouser’s analysis of religion is rich and insightful. . . . [He] articulates a fundamental theme that both modernist and post-modernist thinkers need to recognize: that intellectual activity is deeply and inescapably religious." —Calvin Theological Journal

"This book can be warmly commended. It treats important issues in a clear and energetic way and it is a genuine attempt to break some new ground in the philosophy of religion." —Religious Studies

Written for undergraduates, the educated layperson, and scholars in fields other than philosophy, The Myth of Religious Neutrality offers a radical reinterpretation of the general relations between religion, science, and philosophy. This new edition has been completely revised and updated by the author.
