What sets BJU Press apart from other publishers? 

1. Biblical Worldview. This isn't just a buzzword or several "tacked on Bible verses". At BJU Press, it is the starting point of the entire author team and Biblical Integration department. Each new textbook revision reflects careful evaluation and improvement toward this goal, helping students to view that subject area from a Biblical frame of reference. Your textbook provider should help you achieve your spiritual formation goals for your students, not provide a challenge to work around.

2. Critical Thinking Development. An educational process that simply trains students to parrot back answers for testing purposes (the very lowest level of Bloom's taxonomy) doesn't serve them well. Instead, they need to be drawn to their full potential by careful questioning, leading them toward a deep interaction with the content. BJU Press assists teachers to achieve this educational goal and provides students with higher-level application questions in their student texts.

3. Academic Rigor. A Christian school shouldn't feel that they are settling for second-best when they choose a Christian textbook, written from a Biblical world and life view. BJU Press textbooks a proven choice with high achieving Christian schools. Find out more at:

4. Technology Tools for Teachers. Good teachers are always looking for better tools to enhance their classroom instruction. Often though, that has meant many additional hours of preparation to build presentations that help. Now, BJU Press has provided an entire suite of Technology Tools for Teachers.

They were motivated by the desire to retain the historical reference and credibility of the Stanford, as well as concern about the cost of moving to another test, specifically the TerraNova.
