Bible knowledge is a big part of what our family tries to cover and so it was with great interest that I received the digital file for Books of the Bible At-a-Glance from Teach Sunday School. This resource tackles all 66 books of the bible with a single page summary to help synthesize the information that each book includes.
Teach Sunday School is a company that provides a number of digital resources for purchase to help introduce and teach about God’s word. From games and skits to preplanned lessons and VBS programs, these resources are intended to help busy parents and Sunday School teachers have the resources they need to help their students learn and understand more about God.
Books of the Bible At-a-Glance is a PDF file that is purchased from the website. You then download the file to your computer. This was a simple process and the file downloaded quickly. I was able to then open and scroll through all of the pages in the file. Each book of the Bible has a single page in the file and you can easily print just the ones you need.
I have printed Exodus at this time because our Bible Bowl students are studying the book of Exodus this year. I really like what I see and know that this simple summary of the Bible will be a great introduction for them. Placing the book in its complete context and framework aids greatly in understanding.
The name of the book is bold and easy to read at the top of the page. It gives which book of the Bible it is – in this case, Old Testament book #2. There is a neat little timeline for the book that places it within the Old or New Testament in it’s place.
It includes who the author is, or is assumed to be, and when it was written. There is a bulleted list of some of the important stories and another with verses that are well know from the book.
The page closes out with important points about the book. The book of Exodus list includes things like where the Ten Plagues of Egypt is found and the story of the burning bush. It also gives a summary of the book after most of the well-known stories are covered.
I am also using this to teach Miss J about the divisions of the Bible in both the Old and New Testament. We are printing these at half-size (two on a page). Each division of the Bible is on a different color paper and we are placing them in a mini-binder that we have. When she needs to review the divisions, she will have a complete color-coded notebook to use.
I was telling my mom about these because I just knew they would be perfect for the curriculum she is teaching at her church on Wednesday nights. They are teaching children about the Bible and focusing on each of the books. This file is inexpensive (to me) and fit perfectly into their needs. She took a look at it and while we were talking about it, purchased it. Because I was right – it helped to teach what they were wanting to get across to their students.
And what is that? There are many important things in each book of God’s word and not one of them should be excluded. Each one is unique and special and is placed in the Bible because God had a use for it there. That is why I really like these Books of the Bible At-A-Glance. Each page is packed full of information that is needed to understand the book and its role in God’s word.
