‘Lift the Lid’ on Peace and Conflict
An interesting and insightful box delving into the human mind to try to unpick the morals and ethics that people chose to live by. By looking into the past insights can be gained, but not often is the Bible considered a history book about peace and conflict. These resources examine the history of conflict while considering the reasons for going to war. Artefacts bring this topic to life in the classroom, helping to prompt insightful discussion and debate. Questions examine what the Bible says about peace and conflict and consideration is given to whether conflict is justified. This carefully created box will allow teachers to sensitively consider Christian attitudes and biblical theology around the topic of peace and conflict. This discovery resource box is currently being developed.

The resources look at the time he spent on earth, his death and resurrection and the reality for Christians that Jesus is alive and real today. These resources include testimonials from people alive today as well as looking back at the history that reveals the person of Jesus. This is an essential resource box for any classroom and one we are sure you’ll love getting stuck into. This discovery resource box is currently being developed.

This is a resource box full of ideas will be a pleasure to teach from year after year. This discovery resource box is currently being developed.
