Teaching the Bible to your children can seem like a daunting task. After all, not many of us are pastors or theologians by trade! Yet as Christian parents, we all have the responsibility to regularly and intentionally teach our children the Bible. We know what should be done...but we might not know how to do it!
If you are a Christian parent who has yearned to educate your children in the ways of the Lord through scripture but has had difficulty establishing regular Bible study time with your kids, then "Teaching the Bible: A Practical Guide for Parents" is for you! This book will inspire you to create a workable devotional plan for you and your children, and includes innovative ways to make Bible study engaging and fun for the whole family.
"Teaching the Bible" investigates the problem of biblical illiteracy in our Christian culture, asserts that Bible study is not just important but imperative, and addresses common excuses parents have for avoiding Bible study with their children. The book also stresses the importance of studying the entire Bible with your children, and gives practical ideas for teaching your kids about biblical narrative, context, and ancient history.
The "Questions and Reflections" sections at the end of each chapter make this book an excellent guide for individual or group study, and two appendices include additional resources and a one-week sample Bible study plan.
