Product Description

In spite of Scripture's gripping stories, real-life characters, and timeless truths, it can be tough to communicate the ideas and content of God's Word to children. Ditchfield can help! She explains what's in the Bible, where to find it, and how it fits together in God's plan.
In addition to Bible basics, the last section offers lots of practical tips and suggestions on things like choosing a translation, using a concordance or encyclopedia, and organizing your own personal Bible study or family devotions. There are Bible reading plans, maps and charts, and lists that help you find familiar Bible stories or specific topics such as "What the Bible says about Heaven."
Ideal for busy parents, grandparents, and teachers. 384 pages, softcover from Crossway.

Publisher's Description

Takes adults on a "whirlwind tour" through each of the sixty-six books of the Bible so they can confidently introduce kids to the Scriptures.

While the Bible contains thrilling stories, powerful truths, and amazing characters, trying to understand it-let alone explain it to family members or a children’s Sunday school class-seems unfathomable to many adults.

But author Christin Ditchfield has written A Family Guide to the Bible to take the fear out of exploring Scripture. With her passion for encouraging people to take God’s Word to heart, she urges busy parents, grandparents, and teachers to try, as well as giving them a fun, whirlwind tour of the Bible so they and their kids can profit from its timeless truths.

Written in the vein of her other popular Family Guides, this book will help readers to both understand and love the Scriptures. By explaining what’s in the Bible, where to find it, and how it all fits together, Ditchfield gives adults everything they need to teach their kids with confidence and to experience together its life-changing power.

Author Bio

CHRISTIN DITCHFIELD hosts the internationally syndicated radio program Take It to Heart! She is also a popular conference speaker and the author of more than fifty books, including three others in this series: A Family Guide to Narnia, A Family Guide to "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," and A Family Guide to "Prince Caspian."

    If only A Family Guide to the Bible had been in print when I first came to faith! It would have saved me from much stumbling, confusion, and the pestering questions I fired off at other believers as I tried to make sense of my new faith. As an introductory text, much of what Ditchfield presents will be familiar to those whove already had the opportunity to scour the scriptures for themselves, but for those of us who are just getting started, Ditchfields work is a God-send.

    This Review is based on Advance Proofs Reading CopyA Family Guide to the Bible aim is to assist parents everywhere who love the Bible as the authoritative Word of God to teach their children with confidence. Whether one is acquainted with all the finer points of biblical theology or not, grasping the message of the Bible is not an easy task, let alone explain it to children and grand children and perhaps to those who never heard of the Bible.To help such people with the basics: whats in the Bible, where to find it, and how it all fits together, A Family Guide to the Bible is divided into three main parts: the History of the Bible which explains the journey of the Bible we got today, The Authority of the Bible discussing how we know the Bible is the Word of God and how can we trust it, and The Message of the Bible which provides an overview of each book of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.With a reading level from grade 6 (depending on the country), this book is recommended to anyone looking for a simple and quick grasp of what the Bible is all about. Bringing the Bible story and message down to earth is mission accomplished for Christin Ditchfield. A Family Guide to the Bible gives adults and children a unique way of understanding and sharing the message of the Bible with conviction and confidence. Some might find the book very simplistic but it serves as a bridge to a further learning. To that end, the title of the book matches the content.And finally, those who might have the perception that concordances, encyclopedias and Bible dictionaries are for pastors and seminary students will think again. Christin Ditchfield is right to acknowledge that to possess a Bible is a privilege. The Bible is not just a book; it is the very Word of God to humankind. It is Gods love letter to us therefore needs to be opened, read and believed (19).

    Christin Ditchfield has masterfully yet simply pulled together a practical overview of the Bible that will enrich scriptural studies for everyone from seekers to established disciples. Though I have been teaching and writing about the Bible for years, I personally plan to use this resource in my own studies. Tremendous job!
