Each year, we meet families who are looking for a Bible curriculum to use in their homeschool. Because so many people know our thoughts and perspective (from this website) on “Bible study” they often ask us who are some of the other curriculums and competitors we would recommend.
Because we realize that Grapevine is not for every family, we want to be blatantly honest in respect to our competition, and we want our friends and customers to be as informed as possible.
Here is a list of some of the Homeschool Bible curriculums that we think have solid and engaging curriculum. Each of these curriculums have a doctrinal perspective that we would encourage you to investigate further to assure that they align with your family’s beliefs.
- Kay Arthur for Kids: Introduce inductive Bible study to kids who are old enough to read with these study series. Lively narratives and illustrations bring Bible stories to life.
- Dog and Cat Theology: These studies teach that life is not about them; it is about glorifying God. Students are challenged to consider their core motivations, live for me or live for God.
- Bible Pathway Adventures: Parents have been discipling their children at home for thousands of years. What better way to teach them God’s Ways than with fun and creative activities.
- Positive Action Bible: They believe that the Bible is God’s self-revelation, the Word He gave to reveal His glory, grace, and love. In each passage of the Bible, God reveals Himself and His message can shine through context, culture, language, and application.
- Apologia: These Bible studies help homeschooling students and families learn, live, and defend the Christian faith from birth all the way to high school graduation.
- Veritas Press Video: Offers Self-Paced Bible courses are the perfect solution for busy homeschool families that want to take some of the stress out of homeschooling with a Bible curriculum that kids love and truly learn.
- Picture Smart Bible: With these Bible studies students do an overview of an entire book of the Bible by drawing that book on a single page. When they are finished, they will have a picture to save and an imprint on your mind to remember that book.
So, there are seven very different choices for your family to consider when looking for a homeschool Bible curriculum.
