This exciting curriculum from Youth Specialties features twelve active Bible studies for junior highers that send kids straight into the words of Jesus to discover the truth. Then it dares them to live that truth in their own lives. These weekly studies reinforce what students are learning from their Wild Truth Journals. The curriculum includes games, activities, sketches, handouts, and reproducible worksheets.
Wild Bible characters . . . wild activities, games, discussion starters, and video ideas . . . wild truths for living. Put them all together, blend well, and youve got Wild Truth Bible Lessons 2--12 more dynamite lessons for junior high youth groups by Mark Oestreicher. Like its fun, creative predecessor, Wild Truth Bible Lessons, this book invites kids to discover the adventure of faith through the events and responses of real Bible people who did wild things for God. Based on another 12 personalities from the list of characters in Wild Truth Journal: 50 Life Lessons from the Scriptures, each lesson reaches back into history to help junior highers learn about Bible people and principles--and then reaches forward to challenge students to make better decisions, better friends, and better lives. 12 lessons.
