Leaders Guide is good for kids too. Oct 31, 2003
Descritpions of this book leave out the fact that this is a leader's guide for a youth bible study. Not knowing this I ordered a copy for each of my girls. As it turns out my girls love having the whole book. It contains three sections for each of the 12 sessions: Prep it, is for the leader(or kids too) to do an indepth study on the passage, and Teach it gives the leader an outline of how to lead the study. The third section is a handout very similar to Prep It that gives kids something to fill out as the leader teaches. This book works two ways: 1) Kids work on the lesson togther as the leader teaches. 2) Kids prepare for the study a head of time and then share what they learned from it. Since my kids have been Christians for a while we went with option 2. They are really enjoying the book and are getting a lot out of our study times. James is an excellent book for new or long time Christian kids (and leaders too!) Although I am not a big fan of "fill in the blank" answers, this book asks questions with purpose and direction. It also gives good ideas for application and goal setting to apply for the week ahead. My girls really enjoy cross referencing other verses on the week's subject and seeing how they are similar or different to the verses in James. I would recomend this book for any bible study or youth group leader who is looking for a well rounded study of James.
