This is a kid-friendly, very easy-to-use Bible study guide! Lessons are broken into easily-managed portions, each about half an hour long, each one teaching some important basic facet of Bible study. This is a great foundational book to teach young people how to study the Bible for all it's worth. Wish I'd have had it when I was young!
I bought this for my son, who is 10, for his Bible Study in our homeschool and he is learning so much! Some sections are longer than others and he will have to take 2 days to finish it, but for the most part he enjoys doing it so much that he doesn't mind when a chapter is little long.
I love how it's teaching him to really search out and understand the Bible, something I wish I had learned at his age! The version they use is not necessarily what I would have chosen, but luckily we have so many different Bibles in our house that we already had an NAS for him to use.
We homeschool our 6 children and were looking for an independant study for our 9 and 10 year olds. I came to Christ late in life and did not feel as though I possesed the knowledge to lead them properly. Kay Arthur is known for her solid Biblical teachings and made this study fun and fairly easy for our children to complete on their own. I have had the occasional question and several opportunities to engage in candid discussions based on the information they obtained through this study. They are sad each time one of these studies end, but also excited to see what treasures the next one holds. We will be doing every book in this series for each of our children, as long as we are able to get ahold of the books!
This particular study was the first one we completed in the series, so it was a little more confusing, until we all became familiar with the language and activities used. By the 3rd week or so, they were feeling pretty comfortable with it.
My granddaughter started reading and completing the written assigmnents the same day I presented her the book. I like the work product and the contents of the book, and would recommend it to other parents! I think itnis a great bible study tool!
