Studying God's Word
Struggling with Bible study or devotions at your house? Over the years we've tried a variety of approaches from several different publishers, from felt scene stories to just using the Bible. Studying God's Word, from Christian Liberty Press, takes the workbook approach. Books for Kindergarten and 1st grade cover basic doctrine. Beginning in 2nd grade, the student studies the main events in the Old Testament, with an emphasis on the application of God's Word to his life. The 3rd grade course concentrates on the life of Christ. Grades 4 through 7 provide a chronological study of the Bible. Grade 4 covers Genesis to Ruth, and grade 5 completes the Old Testament. In grade 6, the student studies the gospels, while grade 7 covers the Book of Acts. In these lessons, background information and an outline of the Bible chapters are listed. A timeline is provided to put the lesson in perspective, as well as giving the important events of that time period. Review questions are given at the end of each lesson to make sure that the main points have soaked in. All in all, Studying God's Word is a solid yet inexpensive Bible course that can be easily implemented.
