 I Don't Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist
By: Apologia Educational Ministries, Inc.

Paperback - $16.00
ISBN: 978-1-58134-561-2
Spiral-bound Workbook - $33.00
ISBN: 978-1-935495-84-0

   What is it?-
This curriculum is for the purpose of helping one understand and remember critical points about Christianity. It discusses world views and how to always be ready to give evidence and understand the arguments that one may have against Christianity. Recommended for high school; 9'th-12'th grade.

The paperback has 448 pages and 15 chapters. The back of the book contains several chapter notes. This is of course reusable.

The workbook is a spiral bound book that has 279 pages and goes right along with the paperback. All pages are in black and white in both books.  The workbook is consumable, but you may want to use a notebook or lined paper for easier writing which would make the workbook reusable.

You could use the paperback without the workbook, but not vice versa. 

   How to use the curriculum-
This curriculum entails reading in the paperback, answering study questions, doing activities and writing assignments in the workbook.  Before each chapter in the workbook, it gives you Key Topics, what the chapter covers, definitions to write and know as well as some questions to answer.

This course (in the workbook) also has several interesting parts of famous people through each chapter. Some examples are C.S. Lewis, Albert Einstein, Adolf Hitler and more.

You can use this course at your own pace, but it is recommended that you take 2-3 weeks to read each chapter and complete the accompanying study portion. If you follow the recommended schedule, you should finish the course in less than 9 months. For our family, it was used over our whole homeschool year, approx. 9 months.

 What I thought -
I was very excited about reviewing this product. I have used many wonderful textbooks from Apologia. This is a very good curriculum for the mature teen and an adult. I am very pleased. My son, who is 13 but going into 10'th grade this fall, liked it and benefited from it as well. The reading is definitely high school level and up.

I, myself, got a lot out of this course as well as my son. I would highly recommend this to anyone who would like to be able to defend and/or understand their Christian faith better. The world is constantly trying to teach anti-biblical views and this course teaches you how to be ready to deal with worldly interactions. 

Apologia offers other curriculum as well. They have online course, science textbooks, etc.
