Introduction to Logic (Curriculum Pack)
This Introduction to Logic course will both challenge and inspire high school students to be able to defend their faith against atheists and skeptics alike.
- A full-year course that will increase a student’s ability to refute the untruths that evolutionists claim as fact.
- Includes both a student text and a teacher’s guide with all necessary quizzes and tests.
- Teaches methods that are reliable and effective in defending truth.
Logic is the way God thinks. To be logical is to think rightly, and to draw reasonable conclusions from the available information. The Introduction to Logic course by Dr. Jason Lisle offers junior high and high school students the biblical worldview of the principles of correct reasoning.
- Why does logic matter, and who decides what is the "right" way to think?
- If two people disagree on whether something is reasonable, who is correct?
- What is the standard by which we judge a particular line of reasoning to be correct or incorrect?
In the Christian worldview, we can answer these questions because we know that God determines the correct way to reason. He is the standard for all truth claims. In this book, students will learn about logic, if faith is contrary to reason, informal logical fallacies, and more.
This two-semester course will increase a student’s ability to refute the untruths that evolutionists and other skeptics claim as fact. They will learn that God determines the correct way to reason and that He is the standard for all truth. Lessons are scheduled five days a week and take students 30-45 minutes a day to complete.
Parents love the Biblical foundation provided by Dr. Lisle and how it deepens their child’s relationship with God. Many homeschool moms report having their students take this course even if they have already completed a different logic course because of the biblical worldview it offers. Often, parents purchase this course for their own independent study or use it as a family study.
Dr. Jason Lisle offers supplemental video instruction for this curriculum at MasterBooksAcademy.com. A video for each chapter is available to help the student better understand the material. This online course is not a requirement for completing the course, but rather supplemental to the course.
