I was disappointed in the use of the New American Standard Bible in that I would prefer the use of the King James Bible. I will change the context to make use of the King James Bible and use the differances as an additional teaching point while working with my kids.
We used this book for an intergenerational study. We had parents studing along side their children and teens. Although, clearly written for kids, it proved very useful for new Christians to learn how to study the Bible.
I had read many great reviews on this series so I ordered it. I was sooo disappointed. It was just not what we were looking for and did not suit our needs. There are other studies I feel are much better. I returned it.
I have been teaching children's Bible classes for 30 years and this is the best book I've ever seen on teaching kids how to study the Bible. I am using it in my 4th - 6th grade class and the kids love it!
I have been using this Bible study course at home with my 10 and 8 year olds for a couple of weeks now. We are REALLY enjoying this book. Rather than being based on certain Bible stories or in historical content, this course uses different Bible stories to teach the child how to look for who, what, where, when, why, and how in any scripture. In addition to that, there are sections which discuss grammatical concepts, simple scientific experiments, secret codes, crosswords, etc. designed to really capture the child's enthusiasm. We look forward to finishing this course!
