Review of I Can Study Jonah & Ruth Alone With God Bible Study

   When we were offered to do a review for Greek 'n' Stuff I wasn't going to try for it because

I thought "Greek, seriously we won't ever use that". After going to the website for Greek 'n' Stuff

I realized they also offered some awesome Bible Studies. I gave Jacob the choice of which Bible

study he wanted to do and he chose I Can Study Jonah & Ruth Alone With God. The study is a 13

week program by Karen Mohs who is also the founder of Greek 'n' Stuff. She offers the Bible

studies in New International Version or King James Version so we did the King James Version. Each

lesson has six parts for each day of the week. Each daily study is short so my son,18 with some

learning disabilities was able to complete them without any struggles.

   Every day starts out with prayer and reciting or reading the weekly memory verse to help with

learning it. Following prayer and memory verse are two to three questions about the scripture

being studied. There are little boxes every day beside the questions that give information and

details about things in the scripture that one may not know. The first five weeks are devoted to

Jonah and learning to obey God while the last eight weeks are about Ruth and how she's blessed

because she chose God.

   This study is very reasonably priced at $8.95 a book and there's a Sample page to see if the study

works for you. It is intended for only one person per book but at this price it's a steal.The book is a

nice sturdy glossy covered spiral bond notebook which makes it easy to use and keep to study again

later or refresh yourself. There's the front page where your student can write their name and a note to

the parents to help guide you when using the study.

What Did We Think?

   A great Bible study for not only a homeschool student but I believe this would be a great study for

a youth group or Sunday School class. Short enough it can be covered in a small amount of class time

but in depth enough to make you think and learn new things.

Would We Recommend This?

   Yes as a matter of fact I'm going to share the Greek 'n' Stuff website with our youth pastor and the

youth teacher at our church. We have a number of children that have moved up to youth this year and

I think this may help their Christian growth. I believe this would be an excellent Bible study for adult

as well as children and youth. Go check out the web site and see for yourself. Don't let the name fool

you like it did me. Feel blessed to have gotten this opportunity and I hope you will too.

Review of In The Reign of Terror

In the Reign of Terror
In The Reign of Terror is an audio theaters production presented by Heirloom Audio Productions.

You can live the adventure while listening to The Extraordinary Adventures of G.A. Henty  on

and his published works are estimated to be around 25 million. The audio begins with Mr. George in

Arlington National Cemetery meeting Harry and having a conversation with him in what seems to

be set in a modern time. The story switches to Harry and his father, Dr.Sandwith traveling in a

carriage to send Harry on a boat to France. Harry was a 16 year-old English boy that was going to

live with Marquis de St Caux and the family to be a companion to the children. Harry will teach them

of English ways and in exchange he'll learn French and be educated along with the children. There

are many challenges for Harry and the family during this historical time.

Heirloom Audio Productions
I'm new at doing reviews and I had never heard of Heirloom Audio Production, which offer this

product. I was very impressed with their "Christian Heroes For Christian Kids" on the homepage. It's

hard to find history that includes God these days.

What Did We Think?

I enjoyed listening to the CD's again as I wrote this review. Got a little confused/frustrated when I

was trying to read along in the e-book as I listened the first time. Just like when you read a book then

watch the movie......things aren't the same. I thought this would be something great to listen to in the

car on a trip. I felt like I was there in the turmoil as history unfolded.

Would We Recommend It?

Yes we would recommend learning about history with the audio theater.
