Theology Curriculum

Dear Reader,

I mentioned in a previous post that we have been using James Beeke’s Biblical Doctrine for Younger Children (find it here). We have done the first volume and overall I am happy with it. It has more substance than anything else I have found for kids this age which is the main thing I love about it. And for the most part, our theology is inline with Mr. Beeke’s. There are a few places where I found myself editing out parts or rephrasing things. Mr. Beeke seems to be from the King James only school which I am not (and no offense to Mr. Beeke but I just have never understood the logic of that position). So we ended up looking up verses in another version of the Bible. He also apparently celebrates holidays like Christmas and Easter which we at least do not do in the context of corporate worship. We celebrate Christmas at home as a family but do not mark it in church. And Christ’s resurrection we celebrate every Sabbath, not just once a year.

The last thing I remember not sitting right with me is a more theological point about the covenant. Unfortunately, I have just skimmed through the volume we did again and I can’t find what bothered me! I think it was a matter of wording and I wasn’t sure if he was getting at something else that was beyond me. I will edit this if I find it!
