The Understanding the Times Series

Foundational beliefs and values influence how students interpret the world and guide their actions. The Understanding the Times Series is a unique curriculum designed to help students in ninth through twelfth grades build foundational beliefs and values from a biblical perspective. In an age of competing worldviews, this curriculum will help high school students formulate a biblical perspective of the world and then live accordingly. The Understanding the Times Series incorporates Scripture with a worldview curriculum in a way that cohesively presents and affirms the biblical Christian worldview within the historic truths of creation, the fall, redemption, and restoration. It also addresses five worldviews that compete with Christianity—Islam, secularism, Marxism, new spirituality, and postmodernism—so students may engage in evaluative and comparative studies of biblical and unbiblical worldviews.

Christian schools have a unique opportunity to model educational excellence, preparing students to enter society with a distinctly biblical worldview in which they integrate their faith with their academic knowledge. From this integrated approach to education, students are enabled to not only remain firm in their Christian faith but are also encouraged to make valuable contributions to society.

The design and goals for the Understanding the Times Series are based on the premise that no worldview curriculum can, or should, provide an exact model for Christian thinking and action. Rather, a worldview curriculum must present a framework of biblical truth and values, encourage students to reflect upon it, and provide opportunities for students to apply what they have learned. Ultimately, it is up to students to individually embrace biblical truth and to act upon it as they are enabled by the Holy Spirit. Within these parameters, the goal of the Understanding the Times Series is to help students develop a cohesive Christian worldview through which they can interpret the world around them and respond to it biblically in both their thoughts and actions. It prepares students to answer the big questions about God, the universe, people, truth, and right and wrong. The Understanding the Times Series also equips students to defend their faith as well as identify the inherent contradictions and false ideas of unbiblical worldviews.
