     Let God Be God: A Study of the Attributes of God (Grades 9-10)

PDP High School Bible:  Let God Be God
A study of the character and attributes of God, this course encourages teens to wrestle with questions they frequently ask in a framework that draws the answers from Scripture. The course is designed on the premise that the more we come to know God through a careful study of His Word, the greater will be our challenge to maintain a right relationship with Him. The attributes are organized into helpful categories: the knowledge of God, the Trinity, God's unshared attributes, and God's shared attributes.
The workbook helps students tackle each attribute through appropriate exercises and activities and guides students in translating their knowledge into personal application. The teacher edition provides extensive lesson helps along with detailed content overviews, blackline masters, and assessment tools.
