One morning after family devotions it became clear that we needed to move beyond the children�s devotional While perusing the �Well Trained Mind Forums� board I came across an announcement about a new curriculum from Olive Branch Books titled �Telling God�s Story� by Peter Enns �Telling God�s Story� is divided into three parts: The Parents� Guide to Teaching the Bible Instructor Text/Teaching Guide and Student Activity Guide/Activity Pages for �Meeting Jesus� and �The Kingdom of Heaven� For this review the focus will be on �The Parents� Guide to Teaching the Bible��The Parents� Guide to Teaching the Bible� is written in an easy conversational tone between the author and the reader The books basic premise is �For many parents the Bible looks like a little bit like my child�s room It�s a mess Names places events are all over the place and you hardly know where to start cleaning up�And if your aim is to teach the Bible to your children the mess isn�t just confusing It�s stressful� This book is an attempt to give some sense of order and meaning to the chaos� The book is divided into two parts Part One: How to Teach the Bible: Why the Bible is Such a Difficult Book to Teach What the Bible Actually Is (and Isn�t) Teaching the Bible as God�s Story Traditional Approaches: Drawbacks and Misunderstandings and A Final Word Part Two: Reading the Story for Yourself: The Five Acts of the Bible: Creation and Fall Redemption: Abraham and Moses David and the Problem of Kingship The Return from Babylon and Jesus: Scene One and Scene Two Peter Enns holds a PhD in Ancient Near Eastern Languages and Literature from Harvard and a master�s degree from Westminster Theological Seminary He has taught in both the university and seminary classrooms He and his wife Susan live in Pennsylvania and are the parents of three childrenThere are two points which I would like to make about this curriculum:1 The curriculum is straightforward authored in a conversational tone2 The curriculum is �ecumenical� appealing to all denominations of the Christian churchOur family has been pleased with Enns� insight and look forward to reading through �The Kingdom of God� in the fall

It's a non-fundamentalist resource from a company that I trust.
