The Bible is often neglected or weakly emphasized in the education of our children. However, author Starr Meade contends that God's Word is the most important thing a Christian will ever study. This introductory overview of the message of the Bible encourages middle and high school students to explore God's Word for themselves.
Available in multiple volumes or as a set, The Most Important Thing You'll Ever Study leads young teens through the story of the Bible chronologically, teaching them about important themes and topics, such as the role of God as the main character of his own story and the relationship between Scripture's divine inspiration and human authorship.
Students can either use the text as a supplementary companion to their own reading of Scripture, or they can simply use the study guide to move through the Bible from beginning to end.

Anna WoodMobile, ALAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent for homeschoolersJanuary 21, 2012Anna WoodMobile, ALAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Starr Meade has put together a Bible study format that is perfect for Junior High to Early High School age students. Ideal for homeschoolers to use during their Bible study time, these booklets offer the students an overview of both the Old and New Testaments. There are four booklets and an answer key. The format is simple: in each new section, Starr brings the students up-to-date on what they are reading and then offers an area for the students to write out what they have learned from the Scriptures that are to be covered that day. She also offers background information as the students move through the text.
This format makes it easy for the students to explore God's Word for themselves. By taking the time to think over what they have read, writing down what they've learned and seeing how it all fits together, students will come to appreciate the Bible in a way they never have before.
Set up in a Genesis to Revelation format, students are encouraged to move through the Bible chronologically; however, the students can also just dive right in to wherever they are in their study of the Word and move from there. However the student and her parents choose to have her use these booklets, she will be learning to handle the meat of the Word on a day by day basis. What could be better?
DISCLAIMER: I received a free copy of these booklets from Crossway for purposes of review. I wasn't required to give a positive review, only a fair and honest one. My opinions are my own.
SC2424VermontAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5October 12, 2011SC2424VermontAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This set of books, entitled The Most Important Thing You'll Ever Study, A Survey of the Bible, is AMAZING!!! It is a set of five workbooks, two on the Old Testament, two on the New Testament, and the fifth book is an answer key.
The setup of the books is that it goes through each of the books of the Bible. At the beginning of most of the books, there is an introduction about the book, a summary of what is in the book, and a bit of historical or explanatory material about the book as a whole. Following that, it moves into segments of that book to read and then questions on that day's reading, questions to make you pay attention to what you're reading! Going through all 4 books you will end up reading the entire Bible.
I love this set of books. It is a great value (very inexpensive for what you get!) and I am planning on using them in our homeschooling. Actually, I think I'll use one set for myself, and purchase others for my children. There is not a lot of "application" per se in the textbooks, but it is a great tool for learning about what is in each of the books of the Bible, and the Holy Spirit can use this for personal application.
I would recommend these books to anyone!! Homeschooler or not, it's great material for everyone to use.
I was given a copy of these books for free from Crossway Books as a part of their blogger review program. I was not required to write a positive review. Crossway's blog is found at www.Crossway.org/blog.
DebbieAlabamaAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Very comprehension Bible studyOctober 6, 2011DebbieAlabamaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My daughter has been using this program for several weeks. This 5-volume set (4 workbooks and an answer key) covers key passages through the entire Bible. Each section includes Scripture passages to look up and read and comprehension questions about the passage.
I love this series. I really like the organized format, which will result in solid Bible knowledge. The Most Important Thing You'll Ever Study: A Survey of the Bible has held Emily's interest, sparked some good conversations, and is already solidifying and putting into context many of the Bible stories she has previously learned.
The only thing I would change is the titleâ€”which I think is quite a mouthful and not easy to remember!
This course is designed for middle schoolers and early high schoolers. I think many children could handle it by the fourth or fifth grade.
Thank you to the Crossway Book Review Program for providing me with a free set of books to review.
ElizabethEastern USAAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Dig DeeperOctober 4, 2011ElizabethEastern USAAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5When these books first came out, my daughter and I (age 7) were reading Acts together. We decided to use these guides as we read and found it a rich and rewarding experience. One of the things that I most appreciate about The Most Important Thing You'll Ever Study is that the four volumes are organized chronologically (the fifth volume is an answer key). As we read through the book of Acts, Meade guided us to read the Epistles in the context of early church history. It was very insightful to read the Epistles alongside Acts, and it helped to add depth to our understanding of God's Word. Doing so with these study guides helped us to pause and reflect in a way that we had not previously done.
As I was preparing to write this review, I was finishing up my reading in the Old Testament: Ezra-Nehemiah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi. I decided to use The Most Important Thing You'll Ever Study as a guide so that I could share a recent experience with it. Although I have read the Bible chronologically for a number of years, I found Meade's survey a helpful asset for a number of reasons. Just as before, I found myself pausing to reflect on things that I had simply read hastily in the past. The result was a much more meaningful interaction with God's Word.
Meade does an excellent job of communicating why it is important to study God's Word, taking adequate time to reflect and meditate. She shows how all of Scripture is really one big story about how God redeems a people for Himself through Christ. She lets Scripture speak for itself yet adds short commentary to bring clarity where appropriate while remaining faithful to the Biblical text. Additionally, she has a gift for making doctrinal concepts easier for young people to understand and does so masterfully in these books.
May God use this resource to help people of all ages give themselves to the reading of the word of God, and to meditation on it_
"not the simple reading of the word of God, so that it only passes through our minds, just as water runs through a pipe, but considering what we read, pondering over it, and applying it to our hearts," as George Mueller has said: "for this is the first and great and primary business to which I ought to attend every day...to have my soul happy in the Lord" (as quoted by John Piper in When I Don't Desire God: How to Fight for Joy, pg. 119).
*Many thanks to Crossway for sending me a complimentary copy of these books in exchange for my honest opinion!
Q: regarding "The most importand thing you'll every study" Could this material be used to teach adults?
This study is designed for students in Junior High and High School, but could be used for adults that have little to no knowledge of the Bible.
