These are the questions we asked before we started our most recent unit study. William Tyndale was God’s Smuggler. Could I have done what he did? Would I have been willing to give all he gave? Should I even consider breaking laws set by man, to further The Kingdom of Heaven for The Glory of God?
William Tyndale, God’s Smuggler is a 21 page unit study, written by Kim Kargbo and published by her company, Soli Deo Gloria Resources. Soli Deo Gloria is Latin for “To God Alone the Glory.” They provide unit study curricula, Bible studies and teacher resources for homeschooling families.
Soli Deo Gloria Resources is based on the belief that:
- “If we educate our children so that they will be intelligent and successful – we may be seeking THEIR glory.
- If we educate our children so that they will impress our family, friends and neighbors – we may be seeing OUR OWN glory.
- If we educate our children so that they can pour forth facts and figures accurately – we may be seeking the glory of KNOWLEDGE (and knowledge puffs up).
But if we educate our children so that they have a big view of God, are aware of their individuals giftings and seek to use them for the advancement of God’s Kingdom around the world and in eternity – then we are seeking GOD’S glory.”
…and their products clearly reflect this belief. They have more than 20 unit studies, covering a wide range of subjects with each unit.
The William Tyndale study is shorter than most and is ideal for those that have never attempted to use a unit study method of teaching/learning or for those that want a break or filler between other studies. It can easily be taught in five days or stretched over a longer period, like we did. It incorporates history, science, geography, character study, Bible, art, and language arts. It adapts well for grades K-12.
Kim supplies a list of resources needed: choices in movies, books and websites.
We were able to rent 3 of the 4 movies she recommended, from Netflix, and all 5 of the books listed were available from our local library. It is her suggestion that you get one book and/or one movie corresponding to the age level(s) of your children.
I wanted everything, because I have multiple age levels and because I wanted to be able to tell you just how hard/easy it is to fulfill her resource list. Kim has compiled numerous activities and projects: ie. mapping, copywork, timeline, puzzles, etc. that reinforce the material covered in this study.
William Tyndale, God’s Smuggler is an $8 e-book. Time is valuable. I guarantee it would take, me or you, more than an hour to “build” our own unit study. That alone makes this a wise investment, but the content of this study is likely to have eternal dividends.
I’m not going to tell you how we answered our original questions. I encourage you to learn about William Tyndale and his contribution to your family. He was a Christian hero and we’re glad we had a chance to meet him.
