Product Description:

Publisher Description:

The strength of the Journey Through the Bible series lies in its ability to have students encounter the biblical text firsthand through manageable daily readings. This course is designed for an entire school year and is divided into four units totaling 160 lessons. This first course in the series guides students through the Pentateuch and historical books of the Old Testament.

This student exercises workbook includes daily Bible reading for the school year (except for the final review lessons), as well as questions for both the Bible reading and the textbook reading. This workbook is designed to work in tandem with the accompanying student textbook.

Covers Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Ruth, I & II Samuel, I & II Kings, I & II Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther. The last 24 lessons provide review.




Category Description for Journey Through the Bible:

Students raised in Christian homes are often (and hopefully) surrounded by the stories of the Bible. Yet, there comes a time when each needs to move beyond listening/reading the stories to reading scripture directly. This series - Journey Through the Bible - is designed to provide just enough structure and guidance that the student not only benefits from the actual Bible reading but has the opportunity to dig into and understand the reading as well as to seek ways to apply it to his life. A three-year series, each course is divided into three units, each with 40 Bible reading-based lessons. Over the course of the three years; reading on average four chapters a day, the student will read through the Bible. The courses are based on the New King James Version (the most widely read translation in a version that is easier to read); while it is possible to use other translations, some questions use the particular language and phrases of the NKJV.

Each course includes both a Student Exercises Workbook and a Textbook. The Workbook lists the Bible reading expected for the day along with ten questions from that reading that the student is to answer. Occasionally, an outside resource like a dictionary will be necessary to answer a question. Also included in the one-page-per-day workbook exercises are three questions that come from the Textbook. The Answer Key provides all answers for the workbook questions. The Textbook provides short lessons (usually less than one page) designed to help the student understand what she is reading - to bring clarity to the reading rather than teach a particular theological perspective. Textbook lessons coordinate with the reading passages rather than the workbook lessons which means there might be more than one workbook lesson per textbook lesson. In the textbook, notable vocabulary words are shown in bold. Likewise, thought questions end most lessons and are designed to help students think about the reading in a more critical manner and to apply it to their own lives. A separate Test Packet provides one test for every twenty lessons in the course and covers material from both the Textbook and the Workbook.

To give you an idea of how these course components work together consider Lesson 105 which covers I Chronicles 19-21. Textual content is one and a half columns concluding with a single thought question. This coordinates to a single workbook page for the same reading passage. However, by comparison, the next reading passage (I Chronicles 22-29) and textbook lesson correlates to three workbook lessons, 106-108, and the student is encouraged to re-read the textbook lesson alongside each workbook lesson.

If you're ready to have your students dig deeper into the Scriptures and learn how to study for themselves, this course is an excellent starting point and will give you basic structure, provide overall biblical coverage, and require your child to read completely through the Bible.

Recommended by Cathy Duffy Reviews. After looking at this program and comparing it to others, I feel this would be the best educational tool for my son. It seems easy to follow, and the questions lead to some great conversations. I believe in Rainbow Resource, and try to buy all of my books with them.
