Can you tell me about the Bible Apologetics course I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist?

I have a senior in high school who will soon be starting USII with Heart of Dakota (HOD). She is so excited about all of the books, as she is an avid reader. Since this is our last year before she enters a secular college, I am especially glad for the Bible Apologetics part of the HOD guide. I feel this is so important. The Finance credit is really important too; however, the Bible Apologetics is even more near and dear to my heart. Just a simple question, I guess! Can you tell me a little about the Bible Apologetics course I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist? Thanks, and we will be ordering from HOD next week!

Sincerely,

“Ms. Please Share a Little About USII’s Bible Apologetics”

Dear “Ms. Please Share a Little About USII’s Bible Apologetics,”

What a good question! I consider Bible to be the most important area of study for our students all throughout their schooling. But, as our students get ready to exit their homeschooling years and embark upon adulthood, their final year of Bible takes on a special significance. How can we prepare and arm our young men and women to face the world, to live in the world but not be of the world?

I had these thoughts in mind when I chose the outstanding Bible Apologetics study I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist. This study has an excellent student workbook published by Apologia paired with the very readable, best-selling book I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist. In USII, we schedule the Bible daily utilizing these two resources.

A General Description of I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist

To some, the concept of having faith in a higher power or a set of religious beliefs is nonsensical. Indeed, many view religion in general, and Christianity in particular, as unfounded and unreasonable. Norman Geisler and Frank Turek argue, however, that Christianity is not only more reasonable than all other belief systems, but is indeed more rational than unbelief itself. With conviction and clear thinking, Geisler and Turek guide readers through some of the traditional, tested arguments for the existence of a creator God. They move into an examination of the source of morality and the reliability of the New Testament accounts concerning Jesus. The final section of the book deals with a detailed investigation of the claims of Christ. This volume will be an interesting read for those skeptical about Christianity, as well as a helpful resource for Christians seeking to articulate a more sophisticated defense of their faith.

During this course, your student will tackle the question of absolute truth, demolish the follies of postmodernism, debunk moral relativism, and march logically and surely toward the inescapable truths of the Christian faith. This is a companion study, so your student will need a copy of the original book. This is a deep study, requiring significant thought which makes it ideal for students’ final year of high school.
