Logic is the way God thinks. Master Books’ Introduction to Logic curriculum for 8th-10th grade homeschool students teaches the principles of correct reasoning from the biblical worldview.

We know that God determines the correct way to reason. He is the standard for all truth claims. In this course, students will learn about logic, if faith is contrary to reason, informal logical fallacies, and more.

Learning logical terms and principles is often like learning a foreign language. This course has been developed to help your students learn the practical understanding of logical arguments.

Great book
Review by Eduardo
For me this book is unique. There are few books of logic that an 7th grader can understand and have a very good biblical foundation. Check also the online program where the author explain the lessons it is very good!
Loved it!
Review by Missionary Mom
Two of our boys (8th and 10th grades) did this study together and really enjoyed it. Our whole family benefited as they would share with us what they were learning. In this world where thinking logically seems to be in short supply, this was a great study for our boys to do.
Designed well
Review by Ashley
I absolutely love this for my 9th grader. Logic is such an important life skill, and this one is taught so well. The design and presentation of the textbook pages are simple, yet visually pleasing.
Good introductory lessons
Review by Betty
The reasoning seems little repetitive and short. Otherwise it is a good book to get started thinking in the right direction.
So thankful

Must buy
Review by JOSHUA
Even if you just buy this book to read its a great book to add to any collection I did this with my 6th grader because he is very advanced in the Bible. He begged daily to read more. This was very informative and engaging. I would definitely buy again.
Thumbs up
Review by Michelle
I love that this book comes from a Biblical perspective. We need to teach our kids how to be prepared for the world and this book is very helpful.
Great text
Review by Tara
This textbook was amazing to read. We love the practical examples and the loving ways it pointed out the fallacies of other viewpoints. While reading it with my sons, they were able to analyze fallacies that they had heard in their own lives and discuss why they weren’t logical and proper reasoning. Great foundation to thinking logically.
