Of course, we know that this wouldn't be good, but sometimes we allow teenagers to settle for a similar spiritual diet: Instead of learning how to consume the Bible on their own, they become dependent on our teaching. Yes, teaching from the Bible is important, but it isn't enough; we need to train teenagers how to devour God's Word on their own. We must teach students how to feed themselves on the life-giving nourishment of Scripture.
As teenagers read Devour, they'll learn how to seek the intended meaning of biblical passages, how to conduct their own word studies, how to research the history and background of the Bible, and how to apply the truths they uncover along the way. They'll be guided through this discovery process by authors Jayson French, director of programming for Christ In Youth's Move event, and Mark Moore, professor of New Testament and hermeneutics at Ozark Christian College in Joplin, Missouri.
At the end of chapters, students will find projects and ideas to help them dig deeper and go further in their understanding of Scriptureall with the goal of teaching students how to devour the Word of God.
