Family Bible Study Series
Author and homeschooling father Kevin Swanson believes that parents are given responsibility to educate their children, particularly in the critical area of character. He also believes that God has provided parents great tools to use to carry out that responsibility. Based on the experiences with his own family Bible studies, he has put together this series to make it easier for the rest of us.
The series includes several guides that delve into three books of the Bible - Genesis, Psalms, and Proverbs. Each guide is divided into a hundred or so "parts", essentially a daily lesson. Each lesson is short, generally one to two pages, and includes the Bible verses covered, the author's comments on the passages, and two or three discussion questions. Verses are quoted using the King James Version modified to change "thee" to "you" and removing the "eth" from the end of verbs, for a more modern feel. The studies are purposely brief, usually covering a short section of Bible verses. The author's family allows time for each person in the family to read the passage aloud and then say it together, with the goal of memorizing the passage. Discussion questions are open-ended to promote greater interchange for practical application of the verses.
