Category Description for Most Important Thing You'll Ever Study:

OK, I will have to confess that lately I've "treated the Bible like a box of fortune cookies - reach in, grab a handful at random, break them open, and read the short writings inside." This revelation dawned on me as I started to look over this series. The primary purpose of Scripture is to reveal who God is and what He is like. However, we also need to understand the intention of the human authors and likewise that it is also God's Word to people in all times and places. Lastly, we must have the help of the Holy Spirit so that we are not just able to explain biblical ideas but also to be moved to love, worship and obey God. The shallowness of the fortune cookie approach is painfully obvious, and I was struck by the beauty of treating my Bible like the book it is - a book to be loved and obeyed, and a book to be read and studied. Written by Starr Meade, author of Training Hearts and Teaching Minds, this series provides a user-friendly, empowering (not so overwhelming you're afraid you'll never get finished), and systematic tool for such Bible study.

The Most Important Thing You'll Ever Study is an overview course of the entire Bible that can be used either as a supplement to a read through the entire Bible plan or as a stand alone survey course. Bible passages to accomplish either goal are icon-designated right in the worktext. Although the general approach is chronological through first the OT and then the NT, there are plenty of back-and-forth references along the way. Chronological means that the Bible history sections (Genesis through Chronicles; Gospels & Acts) provide the framework and the OT prophets and the NT epistles are woven in at appropriate places. Although there are not daily or even weekly lessons, there is a systematic approach to each reading assignment: read, answer questions (both recall and thought-provoking), and be tested (after one or more reading assignments). The student (or parent administrator) can pace himself, and time needed to complete each assignment depends on whether the student is reading completely through the Bible or only the suggested study passages.

Each worktext has around 200 pgs (actual range: 186 - 227). There are two volumes for the OT and two for the NT. Old Testament poetry is covered in a 50 page section at the end of Volume 2. For a high school student working at a one-credit pace (i.e. an hour per day), I think both OT and NT could be completed in one academic year, but there would be few liabilities to slowing the pace and spreading it out over two years. Volume 5 is the answer key for all four volumes. ~ Janice

I chose this because it is absolutely true that this IS The Most Important thing and does often take a back seat or haphazard path or study. Looking forward to working through this.

I have been trying to find a survey of the Bible course that was less commnetary and more learning what the bible says. I liked that it adds some cultrual details and language explanations.

Very in depth and easy to understand. Unfortunately for my family the doctrines don’t quite add up sometimes...we keep Holy Days and such.
