The Bible History Society

If you have read some of the articles in the Articles on Education section, you will recall that our attempt is to teach in a way which engages all three aspects of the child's soul.  The Bible History Society is one of the success stories in this regard.  The students not only learned many of the important events in the Old Testament, they reproduced watercolor paintings which illustrated the event, wrote summaries of each event, and finally, read their summaries at a gathering of parents and friends.  In this way, their study of these Old Testament events included reading, writing, art, and public speaking.
