We are reading Mere Christianity in our homeschool this year so when I get the opportunity to review the Critical Analysis Journal, for Homeschool Adventure Co., I took it.

This journal is a Q & A to help your student dig deeper into the book Mere Christianity. It helps them do more than just simply read the book and walk away.

If you are unfamiliar with Mere Christianity here is a quick rundown.

“Mere Christianity brings together what Lewis saw as the fundamental truths of the religion. Rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity’s many denominations, C.S. Lewis finds a common ground on which all those who have Christian faith can stand together, proving that “at the centre of each there is something, or a Someone, who against all divergences of belief, all differences of temperament, all memories of mutual persecution, speaks the same voice.” source

The book is made up of, what Lewis calls, Books. There are 4.

Book 1
We as humans are created by some being who also dictates, through our conscience, how we ought to behave.

Book 2
Christianity is the only logical explanation for the world we live in.

Book 3
Christian behavior begets Christian identity

Book 4
How man becomes God-like

This journal breaks down each Book and asks pertinent questions. Critical thinking questions.
The best part, for me anyway, is it’s from a Christian Worldview.
It provides 10-16 questions, for each chapter, which can be discussed with your homeschool at home or even co-op or Sunday school kids.
This journal has been an amazing addition to our reading and has made for great discussions with my kids.
Be ready to think and dig deeper into your faith when you start this journal.

Author Bio

Stacy Farrell’s worldview changed when she embarked on her homeschooling adventure in 2002.
Her background as a consultant and writer well-prepared her to teach communication skills; however, only hands-on experience (and much time spent on her knees) equipped her to mentor her sons through the character-transformation required to help them work toward their full potential.

Stacy has spoken at a variety of homeschool conferences and has published articles in leading Christian magazines. She wrote scripts for Willow Creek’s youth ministry, copy for Pastor Bill Hybel’s “Defining Moments” Audio Newsletter, and a broad range of material for corporate and non-profit clients. She also managed a law firm that specialized in civil rights litigation and constitutional law. Today, she loves to help empower students to recover territory lost by “fuzzy thinking” and low expectations. To that end, she created:

Philosophy Adventure™—Pre-Socratics – designed to help students 6th-12th grade cultivate and defend a biblical worldview by teaching them how to write skillfully, think critically, and speak articulately as they explore the history of ideas
Philippians in 28 Weeks™ — a simple and painless way to memorize an entire book of Scripture
The Wise Woman with Literary Analysis Journal Questions – an enchanting fable that unmasks the ugliness of pride and selfishness
Mere Christianity Critical Analysis Journal — a powerful tool to strengthen critical thinking while cultivating a biblical worldview.

Although Stacy loves to write, speak, and teach, she considers her role as wife to Roger and mother to two precious sons to be her greatest work and privilege. You can learn more about her resources at Homeschool Adventure.
