You may be asking right now, "What is a Scripture Sleuth?" Well, a Scripture Sleuth is one who solves mysteries using the Bible! That is just want Concord Cunningham does! These delightful books are full of fun mysteries that you participate in solving. After Concord has asked all his questions and heard all the facts, there is usually something that sounds familiar. Like something else he has heard before. That's when he gets out his trusted Bible, looks at his concordance (hence his name!), and finds the answer to the mystery! The best part is that he doesn't give you the answer right away. He just gives you the scripture reference so you can look up the verses and see if you can solve the mystery on your own! After you think you have it all figured out you can flip to the back to read the solution to the mystery! The mysteries, written by Mathew Halverson, are very creative and tricky! There are twelve mysteries in each book. At the back, there are also some great tips on how to use your own concordance to solve your own mysteries in life! Maybe someday you too can be a Scripture Sleuth! - elise

I saw these chapter books on a blog post about recommended christian chapter books for young readers. Since my local library does not carry the series, I just decided to buy them and was pleased to see the low price I could get them for on Rainbow Resource Center's website. I look forward to reading these books aloud to my two boys and if my older son enjoys them enough, he could probably read them on his own. If he really enjoys them, I will probably be back to buy more! :)

Fun!
these are great books for remembering things in the Bible or even for researching things the kids haven't retained. Fun for the entire family for read alouds. We purchased them all because we liked the first few

A good read aloud and bible verse look-up exposure
I am pleased with my purchase of the Scripture Sleuth series. So far we are only through the first book, but my 6 year old son has really enjoyed them so far. They serve as great read aloud stories with short chapters (each chapter is a different mystery with the solution provided in the back of the book) and each clue provides the perfect opportunity for exposure to looking up verses in the Bible. My son enjoys looking up the book of the Bible in the table of contents and then looking for the "big number" (chapter) and the "little number" (the verse) to get the clue for solving the mystery. I will say that these mysteries might be suited for slightly older kids (maybe 2nd grade and up) because some of the expressions and vocabulary used take some explaining for my kindergartener (which is maybe why it's good we are using these as read aloud books). Also, be aware that the mysteries deal with crimes such as stealing, vandalism and cheating, so be prepared to discuss those types of issue too! But overall, I'm glad we purchased these and so far we have enjoyed reading one or two chapters aloud together each day at snack time! :)

These are great books for the budding "sleuths" in our home Our children enjoyed reading "Encyclopedia Brown" books but we were so pleased to find a Christian perspective The kids have been learning to use a concordance on their own and they love looking up the "clues" in the Bible Why stop at one buy them all!
