Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.
Pilgrim’s Rock, LLC graciously has allowed me to review their Unbreakable Faith Course. It is an online Christian apologetics course that focuses on God’s infinite excellence. The course utilizes videos that correspond with the books, God the Reason and The Box both written by Craig Biehl.
- What is apologetics?
- How can Christians defend their faith? Do they need to?
- Are reason and rationality really the driving factors in an unbelievers world-view?
These are all questions that are answered simply in the Unbreakable Faith Course.
Apologetics in its’ simplest form is answering opposition to the Christian faith through reason in a non-argumentative way.
The Unbreakable Faith Course provides such a solid foundation of truth that in my humble opinion is absolutely CRUCIAL to Christians these days.
Before I started this course, I really thought that apologetics was just a way to give non-believers a verse to all of their opposition.
For anyone who has ever tried to do this, oftentimes, the believer comes away frustrated and feeling defeated. This course breaks down faith in such a simple yet absolutely profound way.
It starts off by explaining that one either has a saving faith or a faith of unbelief. At the bottom line, faith is written on the heart of man, however, it’s our choice of what we put that faith on.
This impacted me in such a personal way. As a mother with elementary-aged boys, it’s my goal to raise them fully in the truth. I was not raised Christian and was caught up in the new age before salvation.
This course has given me the practicality of the “whys” when answers may not come easy. I think it is essential for Christians to “give an answer” when asked. This often results in giving verses or testimony.
Christian apologetics helps the believer to actually break down their faith in practical ways. To de show the unbeliever that faith in God of the Bible is what is actually reasonable.
The student is reading The Box, while videos are helping to elaborate in lecture-style what is faith to the believer and to the unbeliever.
The Box is a book that has a dialogue between two characters, Mr.C(Christian) and Mr.A(atheist). It gives actual plausible answers to questions Christians may get asked daily.
It is also an excellent book to give to any unbeliever as an effective witnessing tool.
God the Reason
God the Reason is the second text that goes with the course. It really is a textbook. It is meaty and I am still digesting it as working through the course. Whereas, The Box is a much more simple read.
When reading God the Reason, one can tell the author has a Ph.D. in theology. This book requires your brain to be working to take it all in. However, as in-depth a study as it is, the lectures really help to simplify the material.
The course also includes office hours if the student needs to reach out for clarification or questions.
The Course LAyout
In my opinion, the course is laid out for every kind of learner. From visual to audio, the video lectures along with corresponding chapters from the texts help the student to navigate through the course.
It is set at your own pace. You cannot skip ahead until passing the quizzes and watching the videos. I would like to see in the future perhaps if one can have an option to tie in emails telling you what to complete for the week.
I would recommend this course to high school seniors, or above. Even more importantly I’d recommend it to parents. It is so important as homeschool parents to keep educating and cultivating a love of learning in the home.
This is the first bible academic course I have taken. I am absolutely so grateful for it. I would recommend this course to anyone willing to read and learn. So check out the Unbreakable Faith Course and see other reviews below if it is something your family can benefit from.
