Good Idea, Mediocre Execution Nov 14, 2008
I am using this with my very bright nine year old daughter this year for fourth grade Bible (we homeschool). I am a theology professor at a major evangelical university. So I had been looking for something a little "meatier" than just the "same old thing". I had high hopes for Kay Arthur's series, especially given the reviews on this site. But I have been disappointed with three features of this study:
1) The running story line of some kids making a movie using characters from Daniel adds a component to the Bible study that is unnecessary and distracting. The study is good enough by itself. Adding this story just bogs things down. We ended up skipping all of these narratives and simply answering the Bible questions. That greatly helped to streamline the process. Otherwise, I think we would have been working on this for six months.
2) There are WAY too many questions, some of which are redundant. There is no way my nine year old, even as bright as she is, could do this study independently in any reasonable timeframe. Sure, she could probably come up with the answers, but she would be so frustrated and worn out by the end, that it would lose any potential spiritual value. So what we do is, she reads the Bible verse and then I read the question aloud, she tells me the answer, and then I write it down. Otherwise, she'd be there for over an hour just to complete a couple pages.
3) The application sections are awful. Arthur apparently does not understand the proper rules for how to transculturate biblical literature. I generally skip her applications and add my own discussion questions. Obviously, I'm at an advantage because of my education. Most users won't be that fortunate. That's what makes this aspect of the study so frustrating for me. If Arthur would strengthen these sections and dump the "cutesy" story line, I think she would have created something genuinely useful tool for fighting the horrible biblical illiteracy that we are facing in this generation.
Again, I think the IDEA of what Arthur is trying to do is great. It's the execution that I take issue with. But her attempt is the best I've found for kids in this age range, so that's why I give it three stars.
A very easy-to-use and fun experience for kids 8-12 Apr 10, 2008
Reviewed by Brianne Plach (age 10) for Reader Views (4/08)
Who is famous for getting thrown into a den of hungry lions but not get eaten? You probably have heard about Daniel in the Bible. If it was you or I that would be thrown into a lions' den, we would most likely panic and know that we were going to die. But Daniel wasn't worried? Why, because he knew God would help him. God wouldn't let that happen to him unless it was his time to die and go to live with Jesus. This is just one of the tough situations that Daniel found himself in throughout his life.
The name Daniel means "judged by God." Yes, Daniel was judged by God and how did he shape up? Daniel trusted in God through everything. God used him as an example of how we should be Christians through everything. What a great role model Daniel was for us. He always trusted in God above all things. We don't have to be worried about our futures because it has been planned out by God.
Kay Arthur has created a Bible study for kids in studying the remarkable man Daniel. Sections of Holy Scripture are studied in details. "You're a Brave Man, Daniel!" is a very easy-to-use and fun experience for kids 8-12 to learn more. I could easily see this book being used in a Bible School or Sunday School. There are word searches, puzzles and places to draw pictures throughout the book. You can personalize your experience by studying each page. You are bound to learn more about Daniel. By the time you're done, when you are asked who Daniel was, you will be able to say more than "he's that guy in the den of lions." By studying him, perhaps you will be able to handle being bullied like he was by Nebuchadnezzar and knowing that God is with you to defend you from any bully.
Note from Brianne's mother: For the last few months I have been attending a Bible class on the book of Daniel which Brianne attends with me. Through the use of "You're a Brave Man, Daniel!," she has been able to understand more about what is being said in Bible Class. It is my hope that she will be able to use him as an example when faced with difficult situations in her life too.
