A History of God Video Notes History Channel Video Notes Questions Only

A History of God Video Notes History Channel Video Notes Questions Only

Judaism Christianity Islam (BASED ON HISTORY CHANNEL DOCUMENTARY OF KAREN ARMSTRONG'S BOOK AND NOT A GUIDE FOR THE ACTUAL AUDIO BOOK) Based on Karen Armstrong's acclaimed book, this feature-length History Channel film guides viewers along one of humanity's most elusive quests. For over 4,000 years, adherents of the world's monotheistic faiths have wrestled with the question of God. This extraordinary, feature-length film, based on Karen Armstrong's acclaimed book of the same name, traces that elusive and fascinating quest. A History of God examines the familiar images of deity as presented in the Bible and Koran and traces the evolution and interrelation of the various Christian, Jewish, and Islamic interpretations of the divine figure. Through balanced analysis of historic and holy texts and extensive use of ancient art and artifacts, we'll follow the long road to today's understanding of God and what the journey--and the destination--have to tell us about humanity and its never-ending search for meaning and comfort. From the time of Abraham to the present, this is a thought-provoking look at the God at the heart of the world's three great monotheistic religions.

Ruth: The Bride of the Kinsman Redeemer Lapbook

Ruth: The Bride of the Kinsman Redeemer Lapbook

During the chaotic period of the Judges who governed Israel, when "there was no king, and everyone did as he saw fit," there emerged a beautiful love story between two unlikely people. Ruth was a pagan foreigner who needed redemption; her mother-in-law, Naomi, was a bitter shell of a woman who needed healing; and Boaz was the son of a prostitute who had migrated to Israel years ago. Who would suspect that this union would beget the great King David of Israel, and generations later, the Messiah? See the love story of Ruth in a whole new light with our accompanying Lapbook and study guide.
