Part of our homeschool vision is raising children who know and love the Lord and share that knowledge with the world. I was excited to be able to try the The Unbreakable Faith Course from Pilgrim’s Rock, LLC as a way to help my son achieve that goal.
The Unbreakable Faith Course is an apologetics course that is done online and accompanied by two books: The Box and God the Reason. The course can be used for high school credit and is recommended for ages 15+. Since my son is a little younger than the recommended age, I decided that we would work through the first part of the course materials together. This allowed me to get a better feel for his ability to be successful in the course and make sure that the content lined up with our personal beliefs.
We both started by reading The Box. This short and fairly easy read is required reading for part one of the course. The book gives an example of apologetics through the lens of a man who helps his atheist neighbor understand the truth about God. It was an easy read that took me less than two hours to complete. It was a bit over simplistic on its own but gave a good starting point for understanding apologetics.
Next, we moved on to reading the first chapters of God the Reason (this book was required reading for the course but broken up into chapters with chapters 1-2 being required for Part 1). This book was considerably more complex and denser than The Box and went much deeper into a solid understanding of apologetics. My son is a strong reader but he needed help understanding the complex content of the book.
Once we had completed the required reading, we watched the online videos that accompanied the course. These videos were done in a narrated PowerPoint style. The videos all started with hymns, which I really enjoyed. There was a lot of great information in the videos, however, my son found them to be a bit dry and would have preferred a more engaging style. He did however, retain the information from the videos, so they were effective.
Once we had completed the required reading and watched the videos for Part 1, my son took the computer graded quiz for that section. This was a timed, 25 question quiz. He missed a couple of answers but did very well overall and seemed to retain the information that was presented. I really appreciated that the program showed him which answers he got incorrect and explained the correct answer.
We then were able to move onto Part 2 which included more reading from God the Reason and additional videos. There are six parts which each part including reading, videos, and a quiz to check for understanding.
Overall, I think this apologetics course has a lot of really great information. I do believe that their age recommendation for 15+ is accurate for any student that is taking the course independently. I will have my son finish the course but we will work together so that I can ensure that he understands the complex concepts that are included in the course.
