"Unlike the "modern math" theorists, who believe that mathematics is a creation of man and thus arbitrary and relative, A Beka Book teaches that the laws of mathematics are a creation of God and thus absolute....A Beka Book provides attractive, legible, and workable traditional mathematics texts that are not burdened with modern theories such as set theory." — ABeka.com

More info -
A Beka Book is a publisher affiliated with Pensacola Christian College that produces K-12 curriculum materials that are used by Fundamentalist Conservative Christian schools and homeschooling families around the world.
A Beka Book is the largest Christian textbook publisher in the world.

A Beka Book has been criticized by the University of California and National Center for Science Education for publishing information contrary to accepted historical consensus, scientific consensus, especially regarding the theory of evolution.
A Beka Book takes firm Biblical literalist and young earth creationist positions in its science curriculum, portraying the Genesis creation narrative as a fact, which goes against scientific consensus.
In particular, A Beka Book was criticized for selling works that are contradictory to the scientific consensus regarding the origins of the universe, origins of life, and evolution. In Association of Christian Schools International et al. v. Roman Stearns et al., a judge upheld the University of California's rejection of A Beka publications for preparatory use because the books are "inconsistent with the viewpoints and knowledge generally accepted in the scientific community."
