Biblical Literacy Resources

"There's a link between biblical illiteracy and our habit of fracturing the Bible into pieces and parts. It's one story...[and] walking through the Bible, following Scripture's redemptive storyline, combat[s] biblical illiteracy."
– Ed Stetzer, Christianity Today, Biblical Literacy by the Numbers


The following resources focus on scripture as ONE story, 
a story of redemption and love that flows from Genesis through Revelation.

What's in the Bible? Your family will understand the entire Bible through these 13 DVD from VeggieTales creator Phil Vischer and a bunch of hilarious friends! In his first new project since VeggieTales®, Phil Vischer has set out to teach kids (and parents!) the story of the Bible – God’s great rescue plan! We know the stories of Moses, Noah, David, and Jesus, but in this groundbreaking new Christian kids’ series, we see how they all fit together to tell one big, redemptive story.

Prophecyof the Heir. A fantasy-inspired version of the Old Testament, Prophecy of the Heir is the first volume in The Chronicles of Time series. Wholly dedicated to combating Biblical illiteracy, this supernatural novel is written through the eyes of angels and demons, and not only covers 4,000 years of world history, ancient cultures and religions, including the rise of Rome, but also Creation Science, Flood Geology, and apologetic issues such as genocide, slavery, and war.
Covenant of Blood (coming soon). The sequel to Prophecy of the Heir, Covenant of Blood covers the gospels, as well as ancient Roman history, including the scandal of Sejanus and how affected Pilate's reluctance to crucify Christ.

Abolition of Death (coming soon). The final book in the Chronicles of Time series, Abolition of Death covers the last 2,000 years of world history, including the formation of the early church, the persecution of Christians, its creeds and councils, as well as the middle ages and crusades, the Protestant Reformation, slavery, the holocaust, and the apocalypse.

The Bible and Its Influence. A primary goal of the course is basic Biblical literacy--a grasp of the language, major narratives, and characters of the Bible. The course also explores the influence of the Bible in classic and contemporary poems, plays, and novels. Designed for high school students in grades 9-12, and enjoyed equally by college students and adult learners, The Bible and Its Influence can be taught as an English, social studies, or humanities elective.

Student Edition. With the Bible as the primary text, the student edition guides the biblical reading and frames the classroom discussion in constitutionally acceptable ways. The textbook covers the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation. It is rich in illustration and filled with features that demonstrate the Bible's influence on culture, art, and academics.

Teacher's Edition. The Teacher's Edition contains all the information, lesson plans, background, and classroom scripts needed to teach this course effectively and successfully. New to the second edition is the Teacher Resource CD, filled with blackline masters of student activities and projects to promote and extend student learning.
