Last week we wrapped up our 5 part Home School Lesson series on Ants for 4-5 year olds!  Next week on Wednesday we will post a new series on God’s creation of lesser known sea creatures.

Blogger “lnhereford” have shared our ants series on her blog under “Saturday Worksheets – Ants and More” which I really appreciate.

I thought I also posted these lessons in a single post as a helpful table of Contents.

I also want to say thanks to Biblical Beginning Blog for first compiling these lessons in one post over at her blog here.

Here are the four part lessons:

Vern Poythress. Christian Interpretations of Genesis 1.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, September 20th, 2013. 32 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This is another work in the “Christian Answers to Hard Questions” series published by Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing.  Here the author Vern Poythress looks at how Christians should interpret the first chapter of Genesis.  Although the author is a New Testament professor I think Poythress is more than capable to write on this subject given his expertise in hermeneutics, linguistics, science and theology.

As I’m going over this with a group of guys from my church I thought the following questions might be helpful for individuals and small groups to facilitate discussions and learning based upon the apologetics’ book “Ultimate Proof of Creation” by Jason Lisle.  It is a book that teaches Presuppositional apologetics that engages apologetics at the level of worldview.  Cornelius Van Til was instrumental in beginning this form of apologetics and others have developed and applied it.

For discussion questions for previous chapters click on the following:

Chapter 2

Chapter 3

The questions in this post will be for chapter 4 of the book.  Each question is followed by page numbers in parenthesis where the answer can be found.

Videos of Christian Answers to Hard Questions by Westminster Theological Seminary As a busy pastor discipling God’s people I see the need for books that are short, concise, biblical and hard hitting as a resource in training up God’s people to have a Christian worldview (among other things of course). I have found that the series of booklet titled “Christian Answers to Hard Questions” written by various faculty of Westminster Theological Seminary to be quite helpful in that regards.  I have reviewed some of them in the past on our blog and Lord willing next week I’ll be reviewing several more of these works.  (I will also link my reviews on here under each booklet for those who may wish to bookmark this) You can order them as a set from WTS Bookstore at 50% off by clicking HERE. Eight of nine works have already been published; the one still not available is on the topic of Creation, Evolution and Intelligent Design. The following below are videos related to each of these wonderful little booklets.  I think these videos are also helpful!

Short book that summarizes five reasons why the Christian ought to believe in recent creationism as opposed to theistic evolution. I read this book as a reminder of the summary of what reasons for Young Earth Creationism and to that end I think this booklet does it’s job though those who want to explore for details ought to pursue other works for their studies. One interesting note is that the author is a kin of the famous Henry Morris who was involved with the launch of the modern Creationism movement. There is also an appendix that explains the Gospel, which I think is a win. Again this book is to be understood as a summary rather than a fully fleshed out presentation for Young Earth Creationism. I think sometimes it’s good to have a summary booklet like this.
