Concordia's Bible History

Help your Bible students develop an understanding of God's plan of salvation by studying a "fresh wording" of the KJV. In this course, major portions of the Bible are the textbook. Students read the 143 key Bible stories from the Old and New Testaments, divided into 7 periods for the Old and five periods for the New. The first unit to study, for example, is the First Period: Primeval History (ca. Creation-2200 BC). The lessons in the Student Book (6 ½" x 9 ¼", 525 pp, hc) are placed in chronological order. For example, Job's story is included early, in Unit Two, the Patriarchal Period (ca. 2200-1500 BC). Each lesson's scripture memory verse uses ESV. In addition to the Scripture study, students are directed to study a related portion of Luther's Small Catechism and a hymn verse (from the Lutheran Service Book). A few thought-provoking review questions are at each lesson's end and also at the end of each period. The wealth of study material in the student book alone would serve as a wonderful family devotional or personal study book. Includes one full-color illustration per lesson, a black & white bible atlas and 10 full-color maps in the back. The Student Workbook (consumable, non-reproducible; 8 ½" x 11", 153 pp, sc) is available to enhance study and provide further evaluation for use in a Bible class. Review questions vary in style, but are mostly open-ended. The Teacher Book (8 ½" x 11", 127 pp, sc) contains only the answers for workbook questions and the answer keys and reproducible tests for each history period's unit tests. This curriculum is arranged similarly to One Hundred Bible Stories (#063659) and is a 2015 updated edition of Concordia's A Bible History (2003). ~ Ruth
