Reviews - What do customers think about A Hop, Skip, and a Jump Through the Bible?

Great if used for the right audience  Oct 12, 2008
I really recommend that you know what you want before you purchase this book. If you would like a very basic overview of the scriptures that tell the overall story of the Bible with almost no detail, this book is right for you. If you are looking for something more substantial, this is not the right book.

We used this book for an adult Sunday school class and it quite simply was a flop. It was a bad fit for our class because it just seemed too broad and didn't have any real meat to it. However, our church is now using it as part of what we call Bible Study Boot Camp which is a six week course for those who have felt they wanted a very basic overview because they felt intimidated in traditional Bible study classes due to their limited knowledge of the scriptures. In other words, we are now using this to run a mini Bible Study 101 Class and it is absolutely perfect in this application. Guess we had to relearn the old lesson of selecting the right tool for the job.
 
Great Sunday School Lesson!!  Jul 17, 2008
As a teacher of an adult Sunday School class with members in the 40-60 age bracket, I'm always looking for interesting and easy to follow lessons that can be covered in about 45 minutes. Having heard Dr. Kalas
give this very presentation in one day, I knew this was the perfect book.
Dr. Kalas has a unique way of bringing everything to life while giving
new perspectives on biblical stories you thought you knew. We advertised
this new lesson in our church bulletin, and had several people from other
classes join us just for this book. While that probably upset some of the
other teachers, it sure added to the discussion within our class. I highly recommend this book to all individuals and classes.
