Rated 5 out of 5Â by MCarr This is a great text for giving kids a general knowledge of the earth and universe.
The activities are really enjoyable and it is a remarkable fun class to teach. The text does a great job of presenting Biblical truth in conjunction with what the world is saying. I think it is critical that children be given the tools to respond to a media and world that is telling them that Biblical creation is a myth. This text does a great job. My only criticism is that there is too much to accomplish well in one year. I think that there are several chapters (mountains and volcanoes, for example) that could be incorporated into a single chapter. Otherwise this is a fabulous text.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by lnelson Review of BJU textbooks used at Faith Christian School, Williams Bay, Wisconsin
I'm a '68 alumnus of BJU and have been teaching for over 43 years, all in a Christian school. Where possible I've always used BJU Press materials because of the manner in which a Biblical worldview is integrated into whatever subject material the book covers. The ONLY thing I have been disappointed in was when the Press went from "hard-backed" texts to "soft-covered" texts. I've spoken with persons from the "Pres" and they shared that it is more cost efficient to use the soft covers. And, I understand that - but considering the many, many, Christian schools that use your materials and the tight budgets most of them operate from, it is quite difficult purchasing new books every 3-4 years or even more frequently because of how rapidly the soft-covered texts need to be replaced because of wear and tear. I don't expect you to change but just wanted you folks to see it from our side of the situation. I use the 7th, 8th, 9th, Bio, and Chem texts from BJU press and expect to continue. I also teach an Anatomy & Physiology class but no texts are available for that course to my knowledge so many years ago I contacted Dr. Henson (my former Prof) and asked him to recommend a text and he did and I'm still using that. Thank you for the opportunity to share. Mike Bechman.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Lucyloo Excellent information ~ horrid design for textbook
While the quality of the content is excellent...the softcover books are absurd. The cost the the text would be acceptable, if not excellent EXCEPT for the fact that they will not endure the beatings that they will take from students throwing them into book bags and lockers. These books will have to be replaced within 2, maybe 3 years. Very disappointed with them.
