Great for Public Schools
The Bible and Its Influence is the only First Amendment-safe course taught in public school classrooms across
America. It has faced no legal challenges since it focuses on academics and objectivity, not interpretation. Taught as
an English or Social Studies elective in grades 9-12, the course has been introduced in more than 640 high schools
in 43 states reaching more than 140,000 students since its availability in 2005.
Perfect for Homeschools
Used in combination with the Bible, The Bible and
Its Influence presents biblical content—the narratives,
characters, plots, poetry, letters, events, parables,
prophecies, and proverbs. It addresses the fact that,
without an understanding of the Bible, your son or
daughter cannot fully understand English literature,
art, history, music, or culture. Besides providing
one credit in English Language Arts, The Bible and
Its Influence prepares students for college testing by
teaching critical thinking skills through activities like:
■ Identify some of the 1,300 documented biblical references in Shakespeare’s works.
■ Read Captain Ahab’s monologue (Moby Dick) and determine in what ways the white whale
resemble Job’s idea of God.
■ Use visual literacy skills to connect various scriptures to great works of art.
■ Evaluate the helpfulness of the advice contained in the Proverbs for people today.
(Friendship, love, managing money, achieving success).
