Product Description

Devour uses the metaphor of junk food and healthy diets to consuming the Word of God. Teenagers cannot grow spiritually healthy unless they know how to properly ingest Scripture. Reading this book, they will learn how to:
- seek the intended meaning of Scripture
- determine the intent of different biblical authors
- study the context of bible passages and look for historical backgrounds
- apply what they've learned to their own lives.
In short, teens will learn the basics of healthy study and interpretation of the Bible - for their own digestion of Scripture. The introduction addresses teens, student ministers and parents and although written for teens, anyone wanted to embark upon a healthy diet of Bible study can start here.

Publisher's Description

Given the chance, most teenagers probably would love to experience a snack food-only diet. Adios to the veggies! Hello to candy bars, chips, pizza, and cookies! (Let's be honest: Most youth pastors might adopt that diet, too!)

Of course, we know that this wouldn't be good, but sometimes we allow teenagers to settle for a similar spiritual diet: Instead of learning how to consume the Bible on their own, they become dependent on our teaching. Yes, teaching from the Bible is important, but it isn't enough; we need to train teenagers how to devour God's Word on their own. We must teach students how to feed themselves on the life-giving nourishment of Scripture.

As teenagers read Devour, they'll learn how to seek the intended meaning of biblical passages, how to conduct their own word studies, how to research the history and background of the Bible, and how to apply the truths they uncover along the way. They'll be guided through this discovery process by authors Jayson French, director of programming for Christ In Youth's Move event, and Mark Moore, professor of New Testament and hermeneutics at Ozark Christian College in Joplin, Missouri.

At the end of chapters, students will find projects and ideas to help them dig deeper and go further in their understanding of Scripture—all with the goal of teaching students how to devour the Word of God.
