Excellent as Always! Mar 8, 2007
I've used many of Kay Arthur's publications and products and they've never disappointed me. She's truly a Bible scholar and one of today's finest Bible literacy teacher world wide. Men and women both are privileged to sit under her teaching, simply because she relies totally on the Holy Spirit to be the teacher.
"Excellent, but probably a bit beyond her intended audience." Jan 1, 2006
I love Kay. She always seeks to make real-world applications. She does this so well for adults, I was curious to see how she would do with kids. In summary--not quite as well.
This book could be better described as "How to teach your kids the Bible". It has wonderful precepts and concepts, but these will be better used by adults FOR young children than BY those children.
Teens will be OK with these concepts, but I doubt a teenager would pick up a book with this cover.
If you have teenagers who are really into specific books of the bible, I would suggest (for Revelation at least) "Dragons, Grasshoppers & Frogs!".
For general bible study for teens, I think "What the Bible is all About" by H. Mears would be a better choice.
Again--Kay's precepts and concepts here are great. They are just a bit above the level of the audience for which they are directed.
Be Smart! Oct 19, 2005
This book has great content. My group of thirteen 5th graders is enjoying the book a great deal. However, the teacher needs to be smart about how to take concepts that are WAY above the heads of this age group and make them understandable. I wasn't too impressed with the books explanations. Using only the book I still got blank stares back from my group. An example of this would be the importance of historical, geographical, and cultural context. The book gave abstract examples that were not helpful to the kids. It took some time and some more age relevant examples for the kids to get those concepts. With that said, I still think this book is worthy of consideration.
