Morgrace...funny, I was just flipping through the Exodus commentary last night to compare to TQ. Maybe somebody whose actually used both could chime in, but at a glance the TQ commentary is written in Michelle Miller's personal style, such as "Of course, as you already know, Abram and Sarai took matters into their own hands. Perhaps they didn't feel that God was moving quickly enough, or maybe I'm instead revealing how I probably would have felt!"
The Exodus commentary (only Ganz one I own) seems more like a straight commentary stating the facts of what happened such as "By faith Moses left Egypt and for many years he lived as a fugitive in a foreign land. He was no longer a prince; now he was a shepherd, who wandered in the wilderness, leading another man's sheep from one poor pasture to the next. Moses' life was hard, but at least he was free." And the Exodus commentary has a teacher guide for each chapter w/ ideas for visual aids, memory work, craft, review qu., prayers, fieldtrips, psalms to sing.
Of course, Beginnings takes you through the whole OT, while the Ganz guides are only for a few books of the Bible. I've really liked having the TQ commentary to present a biblical worldview. The TQ Greece guide might be what you're looking for. In all her guides she talks about the Big 2 Beliefs...Who is God? and Who Then is Mankind? She talks about the Greeks beliefs in mythology and humanism, and relates it to our more modern world, talks about post-modernism. It would be very simple to use the SCM guide for Greece and just read the TQ commentary as you go (not real lengthy). There are also additional book selections, if you wanted to add any.
The TQ guides also have "Think Write" questions such as "Life as a Spartan." Where it says to take a look at their Big 2 beliefs and who had ultimate authority? What personal qualities did they revere? Was human life precious? How were babies and the weak treated? How did they enslave others? What was their economic system? Did they follow Godly systems of enterprise? Etc. These are optional, and you can do them as written or oral exercises.
Sorry so long! Hope it was helpful:) GIna
