This has been an invaluable resource for our family Dad reads the Bible every morning while we all listen But how do we know all the children are listening? Because they each try to answer the questions when he's done (even the younger ones) and when he gets to the end of each day's reading "Awww! Read some more Daddy! Please!" I used the software to print out a reading schedule for our high schooler She'll read through the entire Bible by the time she graduates! If you get a copy for your family be sure to get an extra set for yourself The wide margins are a great place to record prayers and notesI've got schedule on a 4-page layout printed as a booklet (1 page front and back) folded and put in my BibleI love BTS software almost as much as I love the Bible

Wow! This is a great Bible study tool! Our family is using it for all ages (preschool to adult) We have incorporated it into our daily family worship We completed the first book in one year We are taking the second more slowly so we can incorporate other study tools as well With the enclosed CD creating a reading schedule is easy You can proceed at whatever pace is manageable or in whatever order you would like You enter your preferences and then can print out a personalized schedule where you can check off each day's reading as you accomplish it You can specify if there will be certain days you will skip reading (weekends Holidays etc) The program is extremely easy to use; you basically just open the textbook to the section that corresponds with your Bible passage you are reading and proceed We like to read a chapter at a time and then ask all the questions that go along with that chapter This helps ensure that everyone is listening to and processing what they are hearing The questions are simply a recounting of facts not an interpretation of the Scriptures making this study perfect for any denomination or belief It is simply an extremely in-depth study of the Bible We write answers in the appropriate spaces and then other things in the spacious lined margins For example since everyone reads along in their own Bible (some of which are different versions) we discuss and note any verses that have interesting variations among the versions we are reading The charts maps illustrations and quotes generously sprinkled throughout the volumes are great! They are not intrusive and can be skipped or savored according to your preference Having tables of weights and measures handy is convenient for understanding physical dimensions and the magnitude of things mentioned in the Bible (Noah's ark or the Temple) We are able to work out math conversion problems study historical and cultural topics that corresponded with the daily readings link prophecies with their fulfillments and gain a deeper and fuller understanding of the Bible without having any particular viewpoint or interpretation pressed upon us True the size of the books looks overwhelming! But break the readings down into the individual daily assignments and it is very doable Plus you can go at your own pace Book One covers Genesis to Revelation in sequence Book Two does the same So this study is simply two in-depth readings of the Bible with comprehension questions on every chapter We believe these books are well-worth every penny we spent! A set could easily be divided between 2 students and they would each complete a reading of the Bible with different questions and could do it on a different time schedule to match their individual reading levels For us it worked great to just read and answer the questions together and take turns writing our answers or discussion questions and observations down There is an answer key in the back of each volumeI heartily recommend using this set Knowing what the Bible says is important for defending the Christian faith to others for formulating personal beliefs for answering questions that come up about issues facing us today and for drawing comfort and instruction from God's Word This set is a cost-effective and highly usable tool to accomplish those goals
